Storyline

In a kingdom, a man is born as a child to Mother Earth. He's checked for normality, confirmed normal, and is let into the system. The man gets old, and the system has no use for him. So he's brought out to be executed. The man gets flashbacks, and understands what his life has been. So he hammers out a message on a piece of stone, for coming generations. Later, a couple finds the message, and journeys out to put an end to the oppressive system. Written by Daniel Loke

gore and circus
24 April 2009 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Well well, another OOP to search for. This splatter flick coming from the land of the vikings is really nice. It's surrealistic, that's a fact but there's also some black humor in it. For example, when a guy is a bit addicted to booze he puts the bottle up his....remembering that there's still some booze in it he pulls it back out of his..., do I need to say more. the main storyline is the fact that earth is giving birth to men through the womb of earth. But when a girl is sentenced back to the womb she has to go via the black hole, get it, of the earth. But the main course to watch it is the gore, no cheap effects, no blood just to see blood. The acting isn't that well at all times but if you can catch this splatterfest you will be satisfied.
