SF IndieFest: THE SPECIAL
First show: January 31
The Special is not a love story. Its story centers on obsession, on addiction, and chasing a high no matter how gruesome the journey becomes.
When Jerry suspects his wife is cheating on him, his best friend Mike (a well cast Dave Sheridan) shows him the immense pleasures of “the Special,” a mysterious sexual exploit found at a secretive, local brothel. Jerry then becomes completely consumed by the sexual gratification provided by the Special, a box with “stick it in here” written on the side of it and an arrow pointing to a dark hole.
This moment takes his life on an odyssey of dark derailment as his fascination leads to unimaginable horrors.
Directed by B. Harrison Smith, USA. 94 mins.
