Adam Rehmeier’s The Bunny Game is one intense and disturbing film.
It features a fearless performance from Rodleen Getsic, who portrays a junkie Los Angeles prostitute who is abducted by a crazed trucker, dragged out to the desert and tortured for three days.
Here’s the catch though, everything you see on screen is real. There are no stunts. No fake prosthetics. Rodleen underwent tremendous personal prep to take on this role, transforming her body, fasting for forty+ days prior to shooting. She takes a real brand, and some very real beatings. None of these people are actors.
The Bunny Game is minimalist, but extremely daring, cathartic, and a spiritual cleansing by fire.
At the moment the BBFC hasn’t classified/certified the film, but it should go without saying that this will get a Cert 18. Not sure what cuts might be made to the film, if any. It does open on a very graphic and painful scene of fellatio, which makes this a prime target for British censors.
The Bunny Game will get an early 2012 release date
