Rating:
R
Grievous Bodily Harm is a dark thriller about the search for a psychopathic teacher who snaps when he learns that a former lover is still alive. Morris Martin (John Waters) is a school teacher, still obsessed with the beautiful prostitute he once loved. He has grieved her supposed death in a car accident for some time now, but when he sees her in a nightclub, the previously obsessed Martin becomes deranged and starts to kill anyone and everyone he suspects to have assisted in the fraudulent account of her fatal accident. Enlisted to find and capture the out of his mind killer are reporter Tom Stewart (Colin Friels) and Det. Sgt. Ray Birch (Bruno Lawrence), both equally shady in their previous dealings with the law. In a convergence of two stories into one, Stewart and Birch find their murderous foe to be quite a handful, with his capture anything but a forgone conclusion. Mark Joffe directs this twist on a typical crime drama, where the bad guys are chasing the bad guys.moreless
