Charm (2005)

    see all cast/crew...
Rating: Not Rated
Studio: 5 Rue Christine
Genre: Cult, Horror, Independent, Music, Experimental/Avant-Garde
Running Time: 60 min.

Charm is the debut feature-length film by Sarah Reed and Sadie Shaw, collaborators in both film and music (BONNOT GANG, THE LIES and THE HUSBANDS). Though at first glance the film has all the classic hallmarks of a horror film, it also deals with elements of alienation, isolation and the destructive nature of relationships both friendly and familial. Using imagery beautiful, brutal and surreal, the film follows Rosie as she struggles and ultimately fails to cope with the apathy she experiences all around her. She lashes out, increasingly violently in an attempt to register some kind of reaction from the world around her. With its roots in the horror genre, Charm expands on this theme to create a visually stunning and emotionally charged film experience. Shot entirely in San Francisco on a budget of $3000 in Super-8, the CHARM soundtrack features such talents as THE AISLERS SET, DEERHOOF, members of THE FUCKING CHAMPS and UNWOUND, THE NEED, THRONES and THE LIES, who all wrote music specifically for the film.
