A brilliant painter facing the worst creative block of her life turns to anything she can to complete her masterpiece, spiraling into a hallucinatory hellscape of drugs, sex and murder in the sleazy underbelly of Los Angeles.
When his girlfriend suddenly disappears, leaving a cryptic note as her only explanation, Hank's comfortable life and his sanity begin to crack. Then, from the woods surrounding his house, something terrible starts trying to break in.
Shot in 4:3 (1.3:1) ratio which is very close to Academy ratio 1.37:1, so comes across on-screen as a Square picture. 4:3 ratio was used for the old square-boxed-screen style standard television sets as 4:3 ratio was, also, the aspect ratio used for 35mm films in the silent era. See more »

Hell is here
Low budget shenanigans on full display here. If that sounds like your cup of tea (no british pun intended), than you could do far worse. Talking of cliches, this is filled with them, starting with the American gun loving character up to each and every other guest/character in this movie. However you feel about this and most of the jokes you see coming from a mile, will determine if you think I rated to high or too low.
Black and white is also either giving this a special touch or just put on. As you can see I am a bit on the fence. I do like low budget movies and this does tick quite a few boxes of it and it really encourages you to have fun with it. On the other hand there are certain things that could have been handled way better. But there is always time (and hopefully more money next time) to get better results in the future. Story wise there is not much to tell and will not be the main reason you'll be watching this (or not)
