Candidate #11

(September 2016)

"You'd be surprised at the things you find when you go looking.”

Co-written and co-directed by Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski (art and make-up veterans on the sorely missed Hannibal, among other things), The Void is the kind of horror film that does not f*ck around.

As per this excerpt from the synopsis on the film’s Indiegogo page (more on that later), In the middle of a routine patrol, officer Daniel Carter happens upon a blood-soaked figure limping down a deserted stretch of road. He rushes the young man to a nearby rural hospital staffed by a skeleton crew, only to discover that…
Dot dot dot indeed.

“… [T]he body has to adjust, of course. Adapt. We weren’t… built for this kind of thing.”

Suffice it to say that experiencing The Void is like having rotting, putrid gobbets of Carpenter, Fulci, and Cronenberg (along with some stringy bits of Lovecraft) flung right in your face… in the best possible way.
There’s plenty of dread and gruesome practical effects (to which the Indiegogo funds went), and if you’re in the mood for some disturbing cosmic horror, you’d be well advised to step right up and into The Void.

“I defy God. There are things much older. Older than time. And they blessed me.”
