Trivia

The film was written after the birth of director Michael McCudden's first child, with the intention of leaving something behind that showed his daughter a little of how he sees the world. The project's origins are in random super 8 home movies, whose content force a viewer to layer their own perception onto the images. Initially an experimental found footage film, it was decided the film should utilize the Irish scenery and marry it with a European narrative style. See more »

"Sodium Party" follows Claire (Slaine Kelly) through a harrowing childhood to university where she meets Danny, a frequently intoxicated photographer who exposes her to real life through a cocktail of love and drugs.

Approaching this film as a horror movie, it is not your typical scare. There is not much in the way of blood, guts and women running through the woods. Instead of focusing on the emotion of "terror", this film instead looks at the scariness of anxiety. A real life scare many suffer from.

Throw in some drugs, some delusions, some fantasy, and you have a really solid film. This may not appeal to everyone, but it is worth a watch for those with open minds. Unique, interesting, and well-acted.
