Synopsis: An aspiring artist who was sexually abused as a child unveils her latest creation, a sculpture of the perfect man.
Sculpture was co-written and directed by Pete Jacelone, the man behind the delightfully gory and deranged horror film Psycho Sisters. And like that film, Sculpture is full of surprises and WTF moments. The story revolves around a two siblings who grew up in an abusive house hold. The sister character, she is an aspiring artist named Ashley Steele who returns home after the death of their father. After some initial set up, the film jumps in head first into a carnage filled tale in which the abused sister character finds inspiration at her dead fathers gym. In her quest to create the most perfect man. She takes the best parts from her subjects and fashions a sculpture out of the body parts she has collected. The film does a superb job mixing of sexuality with its more brutal content which includes an ample amount of dismembering. Even though these scenes do look at times crude, due to the limitations of the special effects. Thankfully the impact of these scenes of dismemberment is never lessened because of this. The one area where this film comes up short are the performances from the cast which are for the most part a mixed bag. The only performance that leaves any lasting impression is Raine Brown (Pink Eye) in the role of Ashley Steele. Look out for Misty Mundae who makes a brief, yet memorable appearance. Ultimately Sculpture is a gruesome tale about an aspiring artist who goes to hell and back for her art.
Camp Motion Pictures gives Sculpture a clean looking anamorphic widescreen transfer. Colors, flesh tones and black levels fare well. It should be noted that there are some mild instances of combing.
This release comes with two audio options, a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix in English and a Dolby Digital stereo mix in English. Both audio mixes and clean, clear and balanced throughout.
Extras for this release include a trailer for the film, 5 deleted scenes, five short clips / segments – ‘On the Set of Sculpture’ (6 minutes 10 seconds – letterboxed widescreen) which includes comments from director Pete Jacelone and actress Raine Brown, ‘Sculpture Premier NYC’ ( 7 minutes 15 seconds – anamorphic widescreen), ‘Body Builders Video’ (1 minutes 28 seconds – anamorphic widescreen), ‘Steel’s Gym Promo’ (5 minutes 1 second – anamorphic widescreen), ‘Rose’s Fantasy’ (10 minutes 9 seconds – anamorphic widescreen) and a ‘Making of’ featurette (20 minutes 19 seconds – 4:3 full frame), which includes comments from the cast and Pete Jacelone. Also included with this release are trailers for other Camp Motion Pictures titles also available on DVD. Overall Sculpture gets a well rounded DVD release from Camp Motion Pictures.
