FGBFF 2018 – Nothing A Little Soap And Water Can’t Fix – Movie Review

The bathtub… a place to wash away all of the stress of your day. It’s also a place where women can fall victim to psychos, aliens, or spirits. But don’t worry – it’s Nothing A Little Soap And Water Can’t Fix! 

(Synopsis provided by IMDb.com):

In films, as in life, the bathtub represents a private space for women – a place not only to groom, but to relax, to think, to be alone, to find sanctuary. For Hollywood, though, it’s also a place of naked vulnerability, where women narratively placed in harm’s way have no escape. Using appropriated movies, this experimental found footage work deconstructs the representations of women in this domestic space as historically framed in popular film.

I was honestly surprised when I watched Nothing A Little Soap And Water Can’t Fix, because I was expecting a regular short film. Instead, I was treated to one of my favorite types of videos – a movie compilation! I absolutely love these types of films. I have an undying respect for those who take their time to find the perfect clips from movies and edit them all together to create a perfect compilation. I find these videos very entertaining. Nothing A Little Soap And Water Can’t Fix is no exception!

Not only are we treated to our favorite bathtub scenes in horror films, but we also get a timeline from the start of their relaxation to the point when all hell breaks loose! You can see the amount of effort put into this piece. Jennifer Proctor showed perfectly just how often the bathroom is represented as a place of vulnerability and death in horror films. 

Final Thoughts:

The Final Girls Berlin Film Festival is full of some of the most impressive films and filmmakers PopHorror has ever time! I’m very impressed with this experimental piece and Jennifer Proctor! Nothing A Little Soap And Water Can’t Fix was well crafted and served a clear message. Check it out if you get the chance!
