A dark-haired witch in metallic body paint and crotchless panties climbs into a dungeon to the sounds of eerie minimal music. The camera jump-cuts demonically as she slicks up a wooden dildo with blood-red paint, her blackened teeth grinning. She stands before an altar, and her eyeballs roll upward as she finger-paints a primal design on the wall, reminiscent of artist Ana Mendieta's classic piece, Body Tracks (1974). Suddenly, the doorbell rings: pizza delivery.
