Go Down Death

Go Down Death

Directed by Aaron Schimberg

A wry, sinister realization of a strange new universe, a cross-episodic melange of macabre folktales supposedly penned by the fictitious writer Jonathan Mallory Sinus. An abandoned factory in Brooklyn stands in for a decrepit village haunted by ghosts, superstition and disease, while threatening to buckle under rumblings of the apocalypse. Soldiers are lost and found in endless woods, a child gravedigger is menaced by a shapeshifting physician, a syphilitic john bares all to a young prostitute and a disfigured outcast yearns for the affections of a tone-deaf cabaret singer.

The filmmakers tried to make a Guy Maddin ripoff, without Maddin's heart, humor, or inventiveness. One character in particular seemed very pretentious, though I got the feeling we were supposed to find him "cool." Long talk-y scenes... Keep trying!
