I'm getting a real early Henenlotter vibe from this trailer for upcoming indie Deep Dark. Writer/director Michael Medaglia's debut looks like it might be cut from the same fucked up cloth as the maverick New Yorker's 1988 psychedelic shocker, Brain Damage. I know I'm just projecting, but in the absence of any new work from the now 65-year-old master (since 2008's more than satisfactory comeback, Bad Biology), how can you blame me? I'm jonesing for a fix of Frank, so I'll take what I can get.

This weird looking oddity is coming from little distributor that could Uncork'd, who are starting to make a name for themselves as a distro of interesting low budget horror. Previously, they've brought us the Cronenbergian modern Frankenstein tale Closer to God; Mark Hartley's Patrick remake; and the creepy haunted camera shocker Skew. The vid won't embed for some reason, but you can check out the trailer at Shock Till You Drop HERE.

  2. This looks wonderfully fucked up! It kinda reminds me of a downright quirky little indie horror I watched earlier this year called Curtain. It tells of a nurse who moves into a new apartment only to discover there's a creepy, inter-dimensional portal in her bathroom... It starts off light-hearted enough (her shower curtains go missing on a regular basis) but ends up feeling oddly poignant.

    I must keep an eye out for more Uncork'd releases...

  3. I hadn't heard of that one, and there doesn't seem to be much online other than its kickstarter page. I love weird little movies like that so I'll keep an eye out. Another one in a similar vein is Motivational Growth, the "Jeffery Combs as talking mold" flick. Worth a watch.
