Water Borders – Harbored Mantras Album Review

I’ve always been fascinated with music that feels removed, purposefully or not, form the time period in which it is being created. Some records feel dated in a disparaging sense, but the new album from Water Borders sounds like a beautifully scripted scene from a medieval play performed in the modern era. Listen to “What...Read...

Timber Timbre – “Woman” Music Video

Watch pasty, emaciated characters doing ambiguous things lethargically and fall into a drug-induced haze! Perfectly fitting for the slowcore music of Timber Timbre. Sprinkle in some Eraserhead vibes, and this is one cryptically engaging creeper. Directed by Kate Young & Eriver Hijano

O’Death – “Bugs” Music Video

O’Death are an “American Gothic Country band” — which might not seem to make that much sense, until you listen to their music while watching their music videos, which seem bizarre and ritualistic in a creepy, East Coast woodsy kind of way (and serving as one of the best interpretations of such). All the better...Read...

When I look at artwork by artist Filippa Barkman, there’s just about one thing I see. That thing is hair — mounds and mounds of it. Whether by way of conjoined twin wolves melting into a mass or a hollow-eyed ghost of a girl, pieces from Barkman’s latest series, In Limbo, draw a viewer immediately...Read...

We Who Are Young Are Old (2010) Short Film Review

We Who Are Young Are Old is based off of a poem by Dylan Thomas, of the same name. Set against a backdrop of industrial decay, not unlike scenes from Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker, it has an immediately alluring aesthetic. Dramatic use of sound effects elicit skin-crawling responses, and when paired with stop-motion reinterpretations of blood,...Read...

Creepy Abandoned Themepark

There’s something inherently jarring about themeparks in the best of circumstances. They are carefully curated miniature worlds where the highest measure of success is to create something so artificial that at first glance it almost seems effortless. Themeparks become exponentially more unsettling– and more interesting– when the meticulous landscaping and false cheeriness is dropped and...Read...

The Wild Hunt (2009) Film Review

The Wild Hunt Director: Alexandre Franchi Canada, 2009 Geexploitation has been a Hollywood trademark for years. From “Revenge of the Nerds” to “Superbad” to “Fanboys,” even when geeks are the heroes they are still tragi-comic characters with barely a single dimension to their name. Geeks are not real to the Hollywood scriptwriter. Their feelings and...Read...
