Remember back when a movie going direct-to-DVD usually meant it was going to suck? Well then … what does it mean when a movie goes direct-to-Redbox? Pretty scary, huh?
For you curiosity seekers out there, yes, you can head to your local Redbox and find Jennifer Lynch’s latest film, Hisss, sitting there waiting for your attention.
The flick star Mallika Sherawat, Irrfan Khan, Jeff Douchette, Divya Dutta, and Raman Trikha.
If you remember right, things did not go well on this flick at all…
“Hisss was taken away from me in the edit,” said Lynch during an update from a few months ago. “I have no idea what the film looks like. I came close to a director’s cut, which Mallika, Venus and producers (Govind Menon and Vikram Singh) referred to as ‘European, languid and sensual’, all the things I thought were compliments. Apparently, that did not make them happy. I have no idea what is out there. Good or bad, I cannot take credit for it. Aside from shots and performances that I pray have not been butchered… They took the songs out; they wanted more horror… My name is all over it (the film). I can do nothing. But I want to come back [to India].”
Hisss follows a ruthless American who, fascinated by the ancient folklore of the Nagin, travels to India to find out the truth. In the jungles of India he captures the mate of the Nagin for the magical powers of its Nagmani, a mythical gem embedded in its hood. The Nagin transforms into a femme fatale and comes to the modern world to track down her lover. She wreaks revenge on those who stand in the way of their reunion and also on her mate’s captors. Her desperate search and subsequent quest for revenge results in a breakneck chase with a trail of bodies and narrow escapes.
