This video is part 2 of a home-made "horror film"/"blunt sexual comedy"/"epic satire of the most biting sort" in which a "raven-haired ingenue...is stuck in a loop of the same slasher-movie evening" filmed sometime in the early 2000's. It was conceived and directed by, shot, and stars David White on VHS.
