    • Synopsis
    • Edwin Borsheim of the band Kettle Cadaver was once known for his brutal on-stage self-mutilation. Years after the bands demise, Borsheim has fallen in to complete seclusion on his acre of land in which he is surrounded by the horrible things he has created. As Edwin spirals further in to a hole of self-destruction, those closest to Borsheim dissect his mental complexes as he himself reflects on his dark past.


      "Living on his remote high desert compound surrounded by instruments of torture, self mutilation and other paraphernalia from his days as lead singer and chief instigator of the mid 90's shock metal band Kettle Cadaver, Edwin Borsheim reflects on his life as an Auto-Destructive Art project. Alternately horrifying and fascinating we watch as he spins his dark tales waiting for the sly wink, the knowing smile, the slightest tell that would allow us to believe that "it's all just a show" but that moment never comes because, as Borsheim says, "I'd hate to think the pain ain't real.” - Mick Muhlfriedel, Slamdance
