The Void Description

Now in Theaters! A blood-soaked man limping down a deserted road is rushed by officer Carter to a nearby hospital with a skeleton crew. Trapped inside by hooded figures, Carter discovers that the patients and staff are transforming into something inhuman.
Tokyo's nasty underside, seen primarily through the eyes of Oscar, a heavy drug user, whose sister Linda is a stripper. Oscar also has flashbacks to his childhood when trauma upends the siblings. Oscar's drug-fed hallucinations alter Tokyo's already-disconcerting nights, and after the police shoot him, he can float above and look down: on his sister's sorrow, on the rooms of a love hotel, and on life at even a molecular level. The spectrum's colors can be beautiful; it's people's colorless lives that can be ugly. And what of afterlife, is there more than a void?
This psychedelic tour of life after death is seen entirely from the point of view of Oscar (Nathaniel Brown), a young American drug dealer and addict living in Tokyo with his prostitute sister, Linda (Paz de la Huerta). When Oscar is killed by police during a bust gone bad, his spirit journeys from the past -- where he sees his parents before their deaths -- to the present -- where he witnesses his own autopsy -- and then to the future, where he looks out for his sister from beyond the grave.

"The Void" is a six-episode comedy series that had its premiere on 31Digital (channel 44), Brisbane's community television station, in late October, 2011. The show is a "skit-com" about a group of unappreciated young filmmakers trapped by contract on a never-ending (12 years and counting) feature film project called "The Void", under the direction of a woeful, yet inexplicably pretentious twat with a seemingly limitless supply of funding.

The stories revolve around the five underlings – Lu, the drama queen lead actress; Fex, the nerdy editor/visual effects guru; Milly, the down-trodden sound recordist; Ed, the sarcastic camera operator/grip; and Wilton, the brown-nosing gopher. In their endless struggle to appease the constantly-shifting, often illogical whims of Gustaf, their fascist director, they find themselves drifting in and out of tangential fantasies, intertextual parodies and parallel universes. Such are the insanities of independent filmmaking.

    An excellent blend of Body-Horror & Cosmic-Horror. A must see for any fan of John Carpenter's "The Thing" and/or HP Lovecraft.
  • Awesome 80's throwback

    The Void is a great throwback to 1980's horror films like The Thing and Hellraiser. By no means perfect, but the practical effects alone are worth the price of admission. I wish it ended stronger, but it's a fun gore drenched ride.

    First of all, this is a sci-fi/fantasy movie, so it is catagorized in the wrong genre (although it may have some horror elements). I did like the beginning of the movie and the trailer, yet then it became extremely cheesy and the plot became muddled and a bit confusing. I am feeling quite defeated over the fact that I purchased this sack of garbage. If you love campy & ultra cheesy "creature features" and tend towards the sci-fi subgenre of horror then maybe RENT it (if it is every available for a .99 cent rental price), but do not expect anything close to a great film.
  • Ridiculous

    Not the worst movie, but it tries to be more impactful than it accomplishes.
  • Absolutely Terrible

    I'm a huge horror fan of all decades and this is without question one of (if not) the worst movie I've ever scene. Director can't think for himself so attempts to steal from what other greats did earlier in their careers. I will be demanding my rental money back for this excuse of a movie.
  • Very bad

    Coming Soon 1984
