A second trailer has been cut for James Quinn’s Flesh of the Void, and it’s pretty damn twisted. We’ve also got a bunch of new stills from the nightmarish experimental mindfuck, which consists of 80 minutes of fragmented scenes and images which aim to depict what death may feel like or, more specifically, as Quinn says, “…what it could feel like if death really were the most horrible thing one can experience.”
Inviting comparisons to cult German director Jörg Buttgereit (and particularly his 1989 meditation on death Der Todesking), the film is described by production company Sodom & Chimera Productions as “80-minutes of pure Hell,” and a “non-linear, psychedelic nightmare.”
Flesh of the Void was shot mostly on expired Super 8 stock and 16mm film. It was shot in fragments, with Quinn handing certain sequences over to Italian filmmakers David Chance Fragale, Sonia Secchi and Emiliano Guarneri. The actors all remain anonymous, with their faces mostly obscured by masks, bags or makeup.
Flesh of the Void is promised to arrive sometime this year.
