Final Flesh 90′ dir. Vernon Chatman 2009 U.S.A.
House 88′ dir. Nobuhiko Obayashi 1977 Japan
From the creator of Xavier: Renegade Angel and Wonder Showzen, Final Flesh – a feature film made by commercial porn companies commissioned to visualise the sexual fantasies of the client. This movie replaces the sex with metaphysical dialogue, cum shots with cold meat, intercourse with brain-damaged philosophy. A murky, awkward trip to suburban fantasies, existentialist longing for meaning and antibacterial hand cream. The second film on the bill is an optically intense, Japanese teen-comedy ghost film ‘House’, Dario Argento circa Suspiria meets Sound of Music on acid. Beware of singing watermelons and carnivorous pianos.
