Adam Rehmeier described the creative process in the making-as a years-long process. Already in 2006, he wanted to make a similar film. Originally, Greg Gilmore provided as the protagonist. But when it became clear that Rodleen Getsic , the partner of Adam Rehmeier would assume the lead role, changed the orientation of the film. Getsic, musician, model and actress, had had a similar experience in her youth and wanted to play the scenes necessarily real. Gilmore went too far and he took the distance from the project. However, he shall end in a brief supporting role as a Jonas. [1]

Rehmeier hired Jeff R. Renfro, who in real life is actually a truck driver. He also played with Drettie Page another actress who was also willing to cut my hair and let brand itself. To play the role of realistic, fasted forty days Getsic. In the meantime, created a script that consisted of only a few instructions, which included a rough timetable. It was decided with a camera and turn the whole thing so real as possible. Similar to the BDSM they arranged one SafeWord and started as the exterior shots in Los Angeles to turn. Then they tried to shoot in the desert, which failed, however, because it was feared that the police could keep the events for real. Was then rotated at a scrap yard in Los Angeles. Overall, the rotation lasted eleven days. [2]

The director John Carpenter praised the film as raw and realistic. Although there were a few places a little too slow and the film would exceed some limits, but as a whole the film was very impressive. He would be in line with other cross-border movies like Human Centipede , A Serbian Film or Salo see and nothing for the common movie buff. [5]

Other critics, however describe the film as a little visionary, but rather backward-looking:

“The first half hour is quite successful with their drab, underlain by hard guitar music images from the curb. Later works here and there a collage, but just in the last third, it is simply exhausting when Shakycam and quick cuts mean still want Insult to Injury – the desired, in-the-nightmare-getting involved ‘do not want the audience is kicked out sooner. ”
