With its inimitable style and attention to detail (down to walls of VHS tapes), Video Diary of a Lost Girl is the vision of writer/director Lindsay Denniberg, made while she was a student at School of the Art Institute Chicago. Combining her obsessions of body horror with a VHS aesthetic, she concocted something truly original using repurposed art materials and green screen.
This neon-slathered feature is the story of Louise, descendant of demon-mother Lilith, fulfilling her predestined need to have sex with a man, and then kill him, every full moon. When she meets Charlie, a reincarnated lover from her past, she struggles to avoid making him her victim as she did decades before.
