After a person is killed and burnt at a farmhouse, a small group of characters become trapped in a hospital… where they have to deal with hooded cultists and horrible, slimy, mutated creatures .
THE VOID was written and directed by Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski (who is also a prosthetic make-up effects artist). The Canadian movie stars Aaron Poole, Kenneth Welsh, Ellen Wong & Kathleen Munroe, and it was mainly funded via normal channels, though the creature effects were actually crowdfunded on Indiegogo.
THE VOID is an effective, low budget horror film that juggles such disparate elements as surgical horror, Lovecraftian cosmic eeriness & mysterious cults.
Channeling the likes of Carpenter, Fulci & Clive Barker, this movie boasts decent shock moments, some effective practical creature effects, a fairly unpredictable plot, plentiful gore and mysterious symbolism… just what does that triangle represent?
Maybe the story gets a little too convoluted, and some things just don’t get explained, but I think this adds to the obscureness of the whole production, which is a brutal, grim slice of 80s throwback horror/creature feature cinema. Great stuff.
Finally, here are some cool posters/artwork for the film…
