Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz 

A worthless sicko sex exploitation flick of a sadistic psychopathic trucker torturing a prostitute in the back of his truck. Director and co-writer Adam Rehmeier shoots it as an experimental film, in black and white, that comes close to being a snuff film. The film's torture victim star Rodleen Getsic is the co-writer, whose script was inspired by her real-life experiences. The filmmaker seems proudest that his film was banned in the UK.

Sylvia Grey (Rodleen Getsic, a performance artist, musician, and free-spirit), known as the Bunny, is a heavily tattooed thin as a rail LA street person blonde, who supports her drug habit by pushing drugs on the street and selling her bod as a street-walker prostitute. There's no back story, but we watch in the opening scenes the vulnerable Sylvia give head, get slapped around by a client, get raped and robbed of her drugs. But the worst comes when she propositions a trucker (Jeff Renfro, real-life trucker), who turns out to be a sadistic psychopath. The trucker knocks her cold and cuffs her in the back of his big rig, and takes her to an isolated spot in the desert where he tortures and rapes her for five days. The demented brute shaves her hair, uses a blow-torch to brand her body and has her looking like a Holocaust victim. All the while the vic cries out loud in vain. In one weirdo psychological terrifying game, he has her wear a white leather bunny mask as he leads her around with a collar chain around her neck.

Any way you look at it, it's a revolting film that has no critical or social value. It's strictly a shock flick that might be of interest to voyeurs because it captures a frightening experience in a realistic way.
