A dark, weird little gem

A bizarre, captivating and truly excellent piece of New Zealand gothic. In suburban New Zealand, a woman finishes the washing up and discovers some strange little hairs in her sink. She pulls and pulls and something flies out of the pipes. And it grows....and grows....Kitchen Sink is a dark comment on suburban neurosis, as well as an excellent critique of horror films and the 'woman in peril' genre. Filmed in black and white, viewers may be reminded to some degree of Eraserhead. A little masterpiece.
