BLACK ROCK Still 2

Exploitation cinema is rarely guided by women, making “Black Rock” something special in the often distasteful genre, which always seems to hold a remarkable amount of aggression toward female characters. However, don’t let director Katie Aselton fool you, as she’s crafted a roughhouse effort that serves up frenzied acts of intimidation and extreme violence. Unfortunately, she’s funneled such raw intensity into an unforgivably permissive picture, with hyperactive performances and thinly sketched screenwriting unraveling whatever highlights of terror manage to survive the viewing experience. The feminine approach is refreshing, but the novelty wears off quickly once a few of these actors decide to turn on the ham, making it difficult to buy much of what “Black Rock” is selling.
