Dark and creepy.
31 July 2008 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A woman pulls an unspeakable fetus out of the bowels of her kitchen sink.In the tub of warm water the fetus starts to grow until he is the size of a full grown man.Suitably creepy and weird horror short.The monochromatic cinematography is stunning and the score by cult Kiwi band The Headless Chickens adds a lot to the atmosphere.The use of sounds is exceptional as the film is almost dialogue free.It's certainly a study of suburban loneliness and neurosis with the creepy feel of David Lynch's "Eraserhead".It won Best Short Film in the NZ Film & Television Awards and Audience Award at the Sydney film Festival in 1989 and is currently available on "Crush" DVD.
