PARIS: Look, you don’t have to be nice, you don’t have to tie up loose ends. I get it, I’m a distraction. Now either pull a Boxing Helena, or give me back my hand.
Boxing Helena, a 1993 mystery thriller and body horror film directed by Jennifer Lynch, the daughter of David Lynch. It stars Sherilynn Fenn as Helena, a woman kept captive by a surgeon, played by Julian Sands, who amputates her limbs while holding her captive. The film did poorly at the box office, and received negative reviews, being branded both disturbing and tedious.
Sherilynn Fenn, who was in Twin Peaks, was reportedly Amy Sherman-Palladino’s preference to play Lorelai in Gilmore Girls. She later appears in the show in two different roles.
