Supremely bizarre and hallucinogenic cyberpunk nightmare.
9 October 2007 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A humanoid female is kept tied up in a decrepit basement and several unknown groups of people seem to be interested in this creature.When the creature blows dust on some intruders,it sends them off to another world and gives them deep understanding of...something or another to do with rising above the limitations of flesh.These various parties fight it out amongst themselves,some turning out to be more than human."Death Powder" is an total hallucinogenic mindtrip.It's filled with scenes of horror and gore and several moments of a wall-to-wall surrealism.It's really hard to objectively summarize its plot,it's so strange and trippy.If you enjoyed "Tetsuo" or "964 Pinocchio" give "Death Powder" a look.
