Haunting aftertaste, brave and brilliant filmmaking make this film a contemporary classic horrorpiece.
8 November 2002 | by (Colorado, USA) – See all my reviews

Director Mitch Davis has created a truly wonderful breakthrough in contemporary horror with "Divided Into Zero". The film is unlike anything I have ever seen. Although very graphic depictions are illuminated (especially in comparison to today's screen culture), the film does NOT leave you with a nausea. Rather, the film leaves you with a haunted, yet highly inspired state of mind, as the viewer is engulfed in a true work of art. The direction takes the viewer on a journey through avant-garde, art, horror and and the honesty of a one of a kind maverick filmmaker. This film is truly unlike any others in the genre. The cinematography is brilliantly conducted as is the sound design and performances. What I really loved about this film is the all out disregard for belonging to any psarticular genre. Fans of contemporary horror cinema will not be able to catagorize this film very easily and experimental filmmakers and enthusiasts will definately not be able to box the film up into a particular "movement" in today's art and film circles. Lets all hope that more great art-horror films that push cinema into the extreme and present an honesty of humanity, continue through the maverick kind that is Mitch Davis.
