Happy episode 100 World of Death!
Director Paul Campion (The Naughty List, The Devil’s Rock) is an industry professional with over 35 indie and studio-level projects to his credit. He has worked on such films as Sin City, X-Men: The Last Stand, Clash of the Titans, Kinsgmen: The Secret Service, Captain America: Civil War, and Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. But his breakthrough as a Director was in 2008 when he unleashed EEL GIRL upon an unsuspecting public.
From the moment WOD began, this was one of my favorites shorties. It’s a brilliant film; full of eerie atmospherics, a terrific score, some remarkably effective makeup effects, awesome art direction and production design, and most importantly, confident and deliberate direction from Campion. The premise here is simple; a lonely, half-crazed doctor falls in love with one of his experiments and attempts to take his bizarre infatuation to another level, which, not surprisingly, has disastrous consequences. Eel Girl is an efficient spin on the horror and science fiction hybrid by merging a twisted love story with some satisfying conventions. It’s genre fare to be certain, but it’s incredibly well-produced, beautifully photographed, and edited with vigor. Eel Girl will get your blood pumping, pull at your heartstrings (if only for a moment), and make you re-consider meddling with Mother Nature.
