Movie Info

Bruce Dern stars in this disturbing shocker about a mentally unbalanced tattoo artist named Karl Kinski, who is hired to put a series of fake tattoos on fashion model Maddy (Maud Adams) as part of an advertising campaign. But Kinski becomes obsessed with Maddy and decides to kidnap her. Keeping her a captive, he uses her body as a living canvas for his tattoo designs. During its initial release, the film raised the ire of feminist groups because of the ad campaign that featured a naked woman

Overheated psychological horror schlock.

January 12, 2006
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

An effectively creepy psychological thriller with Bruce Dern at his unhinged best.

Fantastica Daily

All involved in this project seem to be in need of some Freudian analysis.
