An eye-opening documentary exploring the world of human suspension which challenges the perceptions and squeamishness of even the most hardened viewer. 'On Tender Hooks looks at the body modification and suspension community without judgement and director Shenton - in the spirit of Nick Broomfield - places herself in the film and participates in a session. In terms of intensity, On Tender Hooks knocks seven bells out of most horror films. Whether you think it's disgusting or intriguing, the film is a fascinating look at a subculture many will find bizarre, even frightening

Press Quotes

A truthful, beautiful, spiritual journey

     —The Soska Sisters, American Mary

One for the morbidly curious

Knocks seven bells out of most horror films

     —The New Empress Magazine

One of the best things about docs is that they can sometimes give us the opportunity for a little cultural tourism, a chance to peer into a society or sub-culture that we otherwise might not have any contact with. On Tender Hooks definitely does this, and in the process deeply humanizes people that many of us would dismiss as 'those freaky people over there.' It's a joy to watch, even if it does cause a few winces here and there, and at least one audible gasp from me. Check it out.
