Nowhere Man (Unrated)

Release Date: March 25th (Quad Cinema-NYC),by First Run Features.
The Cast: Michael Rodrick,Debbie Rochon,Frank Olivier,Michael Risley

Basic Premise: A man must find his missing "member" that his girlfriend cut off Lorena Bobbitt-style.

Entertainment Value: This movie is pure horror for any guy who watches the protagonist suffer. That does not mean that it is unoriginal or boring. Quite the contrary, the acting is top notch for a low-budget film and there is quite a lot of suspense as the guy has to find his missing "member". The problem with the suspense is that there are no surprises; there's mostly torture, violence, crying, and screaming. This movie will definitely not entertain those who have a weak stomach for violence, but those who can endure it will enjoy it through guilty pleasure.

Spiritual Value: There are no thought-provoking messages in this movie except for one: research your girlfriend's past before you ask her to marry you. If only the guy didn't watch the tape showing his girlfriend's porn history, his "member" would still be attached! Look at the bright side: at least he didn't watch that videotape from The Ring.

Insult to your intelligence: The police never get involved with the investigation. Perhaps they are too busy spending time at Dunkin' Donuts.

Number of times I checked my watch: 4

The Bottom Line: A very uncomfortable yet suspenseful, well-acted movie with a disappointing ending. Lorena Bobbitt fans will have a blast.

Recommended Way to Watch: Movie Theater (2nd Run)
