What do you get when you combine a stylish track with grisly horror violence?
Ryan Henry brings us this week’s intriguing installment of World of Death. Set against the backdrop of a gore-gous lake and endless forest, this film depicts the grisly events that befall a lovely couple. To say more would spoil too much!
Right off the bat this short stands out among the rest. Ryan Henry plays with aspect ratio and time as he establishes the characters in the beginning of the film. A woman stands on the edge of a dock with blood dripping from her mouth. A man dashes through the woods. These are the two visuals that kick this film into high gear.
Another outstanding aspect of the film is the use of cinematography to convey the tension and buildup in regards to our main characters. The camera slowly eases in on a dripping sink, all while tension reaches an all time high between our two protagonists.
One of the most unique aspects of the film is the use of music to tell the tale as opposed to audible dialogue and scoring. Tierra Whack’s title track, Mumbo Jumbo gives the film a different feel and helps it stand out among the rest. Ryan Henry certainly proves you can tell a great story with no dialogue.
