Warning! Spoilers: This post contains spoilers and speculation for the Doctor Who series eight episode “Dark Water”.

Death is banal. The act itself contains no mystery. We walk with it every single day.

Xtro

contribution by Jeremy Jones

A young boy sees his dad abducted by some unseen force. Three years later a meteor hits in the middle of the woods and brings something icky. Written, directed and scored by Harry Bromley Davenport, Xtro is a demented labor of love. The first twenty minutes are the most chunk blowing worthy moments. Including perhaps the grossest thing ever, walking in on your parents having sex. »
