An Austrian Director Is Experimenting In Terror

What if death was the worst thing you could experience on this plane of existence? That’s the question that James Quinn will ask in his new experimental film, Flesh of the Void. For his first feature-length film, Quinn shot in two major sequences one in 8mm and one in 16mm to full explore the grainy nature of death.

The film features actors in full masks with names like Skinboy, Bonehands, and Man without a face to truly delve into the anonymity of the specter of death itself. By not having to show their faces, the actors can truly go unhinged in their performance, which can provide a gritty realism to the film. It could be argued that the actors are ashamed to be in the film by not releasing their names however they can truly be free to present the characters that Quinn wants to present.

There is no official release date for the film it Sodom and Chimera intend to release it sometime in 2017. Shot in black and white, the film’s 77-minute runtime will be sure to explore the depths of the human soul as it shuffles off this mortal coil. Flesh of the Void is not for everyone, but with a tagline like, “I’m dead, count me out” those that thrive in the experimental horror genre can be guaranteed to be in for a treat.
