Energetic Insanity, 16 September 2003
Author: NIXFLIX-DOT-COM from

DOWN TO HELL is the 45-minute precursor to the director's feature length film VERSUS. And for those who have seen that movie, DOWN TO HELL is more of the same. Or, is the correct phrasing, LESS of the same. It's basically VERSUS on a smaller scale, with only one zombie instead of hordes. There are three young toughs instead of eternal adversaries and yakuza gangsters.

But beyond those points, it's less of the same. And oh yeah, the whole thing is shot with a Super 8.
