Steve Noir’s “Revecca: Resident Virus” from SHG-Media

If you haven’t seen a Steve Noir-directed video before, you should know what to expect—something completely different.  Noir’s videos aren’t “action packed” and typically feature little to no fighting and no dialogue.  The focus with his videos appears to be on mood and atmosphere, and he uses stylistic filmmaking techniques to capture the subjective experience of the heroine (at least, I think that’s what he’s doing).  Revecca: Resident Virus exemplifies that style, and does it really well, in my opinion.  This isn’t the usual “heroine in peril” fare, but it is a very good video, if you’re looking for the type of “fetish” content it offers, and if you’re not expecting scantily clad superheroines.

The “plot” of Revecca: Resident Virus is a simple as it gets—Revecca, our heroine, sneaks into a mysterious building and gets overpowered by a female zombie-like creature who torments her and experiments on her.  That’s about it.  But labyrinthine plotting clearly isn’t the objective here; style is king in the world of Steve Noir.  And right from the outset, the dark, gloomy visual tone establishes an unsettling mood.  Revecca—in a sexy outfit that resembles something Lara Croft might wear if: a) it was chilly outside, 2) she had received medical training, 3) she had developed an infatuation with ripped, blue stockings, and 4) she lived in a world overtaken by zombies—cautiously explores an abandoned building from outside.

Revecca make her way into the building and explores a couple of rooms.  The zombie slowly creeps up on her from behind and uses a syringe to inject her with a chemical that renders her unconscious.  The zombie slowly caresses our unconscious heroine as her gaze lingers over her body for several minutes.  Finally, Revecca is loaded onto a wheelchair, taken into another room and dumped onto a mattress.

The zombie slowly removes a couple of items of Revecca’s costume (her gas mask and satchel) as Revecca lies helplessly unconscious.  She then rolls Revecca over on her stomach and ties her up in a “cow tied” position (tying her wrists and feet together).  Revecca awakens and struggles to get free, but the zombie returns with another injection, which causes Revecca to lapse back into unconsciousness (the actress’s reactions are great here).

Revecca is then tied down to a table and examined and touched some more by the evil zombie.  The zombie creature then brings a battery (or similar device) and administers electric shocks to the unconscious Revecca.  The zombie then removes her own mask and drools black goo (ewww…) before kissing Revecca on the mouth!  The video fades to black, and a title cared reads, “The end…?”

I really liked Revecca: Resident Virus, and I think this is my favorite of Steve Noir’s videos.  There’s very little action, but there’s a lot of interesting stuff happening if you’re into the video’s meticulous pace and focus on tone and atmosphere.  Steve Noir’s videos are less Michael Bay and more Terence Malik.  Or less John Woo and more Stanley Kubrick.  With a twist of George Romero.  (Okay, sorry, I’m getting carried away with film director references.)  I like Steve Noir’s videos because they’re so different from the typical videos in the heroine-peril genre.  That’s not at all to say that other videos are bad; it’s simply to observe that sometimes something totally off-kilter can be really interesting.

[…] Noir’s Resident Virus 2: Mimesis is now available from SHG-Media. Like the previous Resident Virus video, it features technical mastery in terms of establishing a creepy tone and atmosphere, even if […]

trackback

[…] The video begins with “amateur detective Amy Austin” snooping around an empty house which she believes to be the home of the dreaded Freakmaker (whose real name, we learn, is Arsen Venga).  She sneaks around for a while, hoping to catch a glimpse of the masked evildoer and to (I assume) capture his likeness on camera.  He appears and surprises her, leading to a very short scene in which Amy Austin is rendered unconscious.  Just as things are looking really bad for our heroine (bad in ways that involve bondage and a ball gag), our real heroine appears—Sparrow, played by the lovely model from Noir’s Revecca: Resident Virus.
