Presented by Venice as a Dolphin
MARY: Can you tell what I’m thinking?
MARY: Bet you can’t. What am I thinking then?
JOCK: You’re thinking… this is what it feels like to be free.
Drawing on the Scandinavian folk narrative that inspired The Virigin Spring and The Last House on the Left, Exploitation revisits this bogeyman nightmare for our times and asks what it means to go too far and not be able to find your way back.
To avoid fainting, keep repeating, it’s only theatre
