The Void Description

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.

"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.

    Didn't go in with many expectations. But I was pleasantly surprised. Kept me on edge. Just watch it.

    If you are going to aim for a serious slanting Fantasy/Horror film, it behooves you to deliver coherant action and naturalistic dialogue. The credits for The Void are done in the John Carpenter font, and the filmakers should have learned a lesson from Carpenter's The Thing, a similar film with fantastic happenings with realistic characters, sharp dialogue, and precison action sequences. As it is, The Void falls short, thin characters, clunky diaoulge, and some sloppy action, making it's premise seem lazy, it's action graoning rather than thrilling. It's not terrible, a decent time waster, but nothoing more than that.

    Great movie had the whole HP Lovecraft feel to it. Big bang for a low end budget movie, just imagine what they could do if they had more money.
  • Overrated, but admirable

    Others have said it—equal parts The Thing and Hellraiser (Hellraiser 2, really), a pinch of Event Horizon and set it in Silent Hill, and there you are. I just wish they'd spent half as much time on story as they did on effects and framing shots meant to be iconic. I think I muttered, "Wait. What?" about 12 times. Sometimes there are admirable misses, and that's what this was. Good on them for getting it made.

    Now let me see...where was I before I wasted this much of my life? Better pay attention becuase otherwise it makes no sense, with scenes thrown in just for scenes sake.
  • Awesome practical effects.

    if you are a fan of lovecraftian cosmic horror or horror with practical effects then this movie is for you. It's well acted, well shot. I really enjoyed this film.

    That was the most confusing thing I've ever seen. I'm a horror fan so the intrigue of the story line and gore kept my interest, but when it was all over I was still left confused. I'll give it two stars because it kept my interest with how nonsensical it was and thinking maybe everything will pan out and make sense, but that never happened.
  • Solid Lovecraftian/Barker horror.

    If you're a fan of Lovecraft, Clive Barker, or Silent Hill, then I highly recommend checking this out. It's a wonderful throwback to 80's-era cosmic horror a la Carpenter's The Thing or Stuart Gordon's From Beyond with a great dose of body horror FX. The first act is a bit slow, but things start picking up soon and the third act is glorious. Also, for fans of Twin Peaks: Kenneth Welsh is in it in a role that may remind you pleasantly of his eerie, villainous role in that show. Do check it out, you won't be disappointed.
  • A Bad Hellraiser Knockoff

    This movie has all the components to make something good, but it falls on its face hard. The practical effects are good (until the last scene that was really bad). I love lovecraftian horror and this movie almost does it good. The movie not so subtly hints at something greater beyond and much more sinister than the characters and their situation, but never directly says, "Yeah, the space gods are out their." Unfortunately, everything else is bad. Cinematography and its so many unnecessary cuts and shots just distracted/annoyed me. The characters are aren't good. There's two characters in the story without any motivation at all or even a reason to be there other than the plot demands it. If you know lovecraft, it's kinda predictable. If the movie were 45 minutes longer and did more characterization, it would be a 4.
