    Flesh of the Void



    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.


    Directed By
    James Quinn

    Flesh of the Void doesn't follow a story line in the traditional sense. It focuses on the question "what happens after we die?", and tries to depict the possibility of death being the most horrible, terrifying experience you could ever have, before you finally become one with the darkness, become the flesh of the void.
    We like to describe the style and overall feel of the film as "if the tape from The Ring was made for the deep web".
    And trust us when we say you're going to see things in this film you will wish to never have seen, ever.







    While the main part still needs to be processed and digitized, we now have tons of outdoor material, from which a lot of shots will make it into the final cut of Flesh of the Void. Some of these will be associated with some enormously creepy themes, which we're not going to say though, since we don't want to spoil anything.
    The shots you are seeing here were shot on stone old Super 8 film that expired in the 70s, developed in a very unusual way. They are extremely grainy and have a huge amount of scratches on them, and some of it even looks a bit like Begotten.
    This whole dirty, grimy feeling will contribute strongly to the whole weird- and sickness of the project. Disturbing scenes just somehow look way more disturbing in this style.






    Flesh of the Void will be a very unique film. A lot of that is due to heavy experimentation with celluloid. Be it self made overlays of completely scratched and ruined negatives, liquids and hair pressed between two of them, then scanned in all sorts of ways, and afterwards arranged as an image sequence, then laid over the footage, or just text scratched directly onto the negatives, we got it all.
    The latter is what we want to show you today. Every single line of text, every letter you will see in the film has been hand scratched directly on the negatives. Even the credits. It's a brutal amount of work doing this, but it makes the film the more atmospheric and sinister.
    We're also going to be doing some other weird experiments with expired 8mm film from the 70s soon.

    Two days ago, the new trailer for Flesh of the Void was released. It went extremely well so far, with tons of coverage in articles from all over the world, a whole lot of new fans, which today made us reach 900 likes on the film's Facebook page, and over 16000 clicks on Vimeo. We did spark a lot of hate too, as expected, but that's okay, it really isn't for everybody.
    My favorite comment yet was "this makes John Waters flicks look like Bambi."
    Here is a small selection of articles from the past two days (posting all of them is impossible, due to the large amount)

    http://www.horror-movies.ca/…/nsfw-t...d-bego…/
    Also, one thing I'd like to clarify, after it was brought up by a couple of people: The trailer shows a lot of violence and cruelty, but this film is not in any way torture porn, or like August Underground. Even though there are some very extreme scenes in the film, the amount of gore shown is a lot lower than you might think. A lot of what's shown is there to play with your mind, on a purely psychological basis, and the film's purpose is not to gross you out, but make you feel something you may not have felt before. The ending of the film is actually quite calm and thoughtful, which says a lot about what I was trying to achieve emotionally, since endings completely shape the way you leave a film.
    That said, yes, it's still messed up.

    Do you like your horror surreal, weird, or just straight out obscure? If so, join us at the world premiere of Flesh of the Void, a violently grotesque experimental horror film, playing with the thought that death may not be the peaceful fading many believe in, but a terrifying experience of facing the most vile, immoral and uncomfortable fears of the human brain, living it through in a disjointed trip of absolute madness and horror. The film was shot entirely on Super 8 and 16mm, often using experimental methods to make the image even more raw and grimy, giving the film a unique visual touch.

    The film will screen on Saturday, October 21st at midnight at the Gateway Film Center in Columbus, Ohio, preceded by the shorts 'To My Mother and Father' by Baskin director Can Evrenol, and the bizarrely intense looking 'When Susurrus Stirs' by Anthony Cousins. Flesh of the Void director James Quinn will be in attendance.

    If you want to buy tickets for the film in advance, you can do so here:

    See you there!
