"delivers its message with meaning, honesty and jolting, purposeful gore.
NO TELLING should have been released on video years ago"
"A disgusting, horrifying spectacle"
THE BOSTON PHOENIX
"A smart, spare, skewed update of the Frankenstein story"
Amy Taubin, VILLAGE VOICE
"This sexual, political, environmental thriller
is the year's real SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY."
Jay Carr, THE BOSTON GLOBE
"blatent romantiscism ... bursts of Grand Guignol humor ...
and an appreciation for the idea that leaving ourselves open to the sentimental side of life exposes us to its terrors as well"
Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, L.A. WEEKLY
"Fessenden draws a very thin line between the evil he portrays
and the humor and irony of his characterizations
... provokes a visceral response"
Elaine Beery, ORGANICA
When Lillian Gaines moves to the country with her husband for a quiet summer retreat, she never suspects that meeting activist Alex Vine will force her to confront her deepest fears about the man she married, and the bizarre experiments under way in his lab.
Blending horror and a sense of irony that turns genre clichés on their heads, NO TELLING raises some of the most critical issues of our time.
