Back in April, the first trailer for director James Quinn’s feature-film debut Flesh of the Void was unleashed upon the world. The trailer was a nightmarish descent into a Hell many of us have never dreamed of. Well, the fine folks at Sodom & Chimera Productions have decided to entertain (torment?) us again with a new trailer.
Flesh of the Void is a terribly disturbing experimental horror film about what it could feel like if death truly were the most horrible thing one could ever experience. It is intended as a trip through the deepest fears of human beings, exploring its subject in a highly grotesque, violent and extreme manner.
According to Flesh of the Void’s official Facebook page, the original teaser left many quite offended and the filmmakers were accused of devil worship. Definitely sounds like my kind of movie.
The trailer shows a film highly reminiscent of E. Elias Merhige’s 1990 film, Begotten, and promises a film high in grotesquery and nightmare fuel. I, for one, haven’t been this excited for a film since I don’t know when.
The filmmakers are currently searching for festivals to showcase their film. A Blu-ray and DVD release are planned to follow.
