True Penance

July 21, 2009

The Butcher of Bega’s Sentence Still Unknown

Doctor Graeme Reeves, charged with indecent assault, aggravated sexual assault and genital mutilation, is doing his best to prolong his trial.  On April 24, 2009, Reeves replaced his lawyers with Legal Aid lawyers, who asked for an adjournment so they could bring themselves up to speed on the case.  Then on May 19, these lawyers once again asked for  and received yet another postponement on the trial, rescheduled for this month.

Ex-doctor Reeves, an Australian gynecologist and obstetrician, was accused with 17 offenses, and as many as 500 of his female patients have come forward with complaints that Reeves sexually assaulted them or mutilated their genitals during operations performed when he was illegally practicing as an obstetrician on the South Coast.

His license to practice was suspended on December 2000 after numerous complaints, fatal deliveries, and inadequate behavior to patients as well as staff.  But this did not stop him. Reeves talked his way into Bega Hospital, without a background check, and continued his malpractice.

Eventually justice will be sought for these brave, courageous women coming forth and reliving the horror.

Synopsis

Loosely based on a this character and from the award winning horror writer/director of ‘Days of Darkness’ and the producer of the indie horror hit ‘Automaton Transfusion’ comes a cautionary tale that will make you squirm and twist in your seat.

With unrelenting suspense and terror, Penance is the tale of a young, demure single mother, Amelia (Marieh Delfino), who hits upon hard times and decides to take her future into her own hands by taking up the one profession that can promise fast cash for a sexy girl like her – becoming a stripper.

Everything is going well until Suzy her stripper friend is beaten up on a job and recruits Amelia to take her place in a high-class strip job that night. Reluctantly Amelia takes the job, only to find that the job isn’t everything that it seems. Driven to a strange location by a dark and mysterious man (Tony Todd) and confronted by a grizzled hit man (Michael Rooker), Amelia’s world is turned upside down as a case of mistaken identity leads her to be taken captive and forced to confront her sins – the sins of her mind, body and soul.

Her captor (the mind bending Graham McTavish), is intent on one thing and one thing only – to purify Amelia and the other women in his incarceration. It’s time for them to pay their Penance!
