[NSFW Trailer] ‘Flesh of the Void’ is ‘Begotten’ for a New Generation

Chris Savage

E. Elias Merhige’s 1990 experimental flick, Begotten, is still a film that is etched deep in my mind and I don’t think I’ve actually recovered from that one. Although, it certainly is quite the talking piece. But, that was then and this is now.

From Sodom & Chimera Productions comes James Quinn’s venture into experimental horror with Flesh of the Void, it’s a feature film which visualizes the act of dying, which was shot on Super 8 and 16mm. And yes, it won’t be for everyone but, for those of you who are willing to try something a little different, check out the official NSFW trailer below and let us know what you think? Are their shades of Begotten with this one?

From the Press Release:

Sodom & Chimera has debuted a new trailer for Flesh of the Void, the feature-length debut of Austrian filmmaker James Quinn, following the end of principal photography. After a number of shorts, Quinn turns his eye on the threshold of death with Flesh of the Void.

The story was developed in multiple fragments, with Quinn turning the interlude over to Italian filmmakers David Chance Fragale, Sonia Secchi and Emiliano Guarneri. The beginning of the film was shot on long-expired super 8 stock, progressing to modern stock and ending the film with 16mm. For the vast majority of the film, characters’ identities are obscured by bags, masks or heavy makeup and the actors remain anonymous.

Flesh of the Void is an extreme experimental horror feature, visualizing what it could feel like if the act of dying was a truly horrible experience. Shot extensively on Super 8 and 16mm, it is intended as a disjointed, surreal trip through the deepest and most violent fears of the human condition, depicting its subject in a radical, grotesque and raw manner, refusing to shy away from societal taboos.

        I am no prude. But that is a little much for me. Reminds me of a movie I seen many years ago called Necromania. Could not get through it. This makes John Waters flicks look like Bambi.
