Halloween feature 50 days, 50 slays! Day 16 Water wanderings EVOLUTION

If you recall, David Lynch was seen less as a horror film maker and more as a genre experimenter in the mid 1980s. His films, like his TV series TWIN PEAKS, blended the surreal and the ridiculous into equally disturbed reflections on the every day. Now director Lucile Hadžihalilović takes over the reigns and leads the charge for a new destination, with the same sense of genre as nothing more than a box to break out of.

16 – EVOLUTION (AMAZON PRIME)

WHATS IT ABOUT?

A young boy sees the body of a child in the sea. His mother says he imagined it. The island they live in is not for the horrors of the outside world. Only women and children live here. Death is rare. So is anyone leaving the hospital on the island, Many are subjected to a medical procedure that will help them. He thinks its a lie. But what will the truth bring?

WHY SHOULD WE WATCH IT FOR HALLOWEEN?

It seems a strange thing indeed to me. Time has flown like a river, yet I have still remembered a certain part of the film EVOLUTION from 2015. 5 years ago I saw this surrealist dream of a film. A film that is a mixed series of horrifying images and hallucination thrill. Visually stunning but never the less disturbing, it stayed with me like few films before or since. Now with 16 days to go until the big day, well you might have to be tempted into watching this nightmare unfold again onscreen.

WHAT SHOULD WE LOOK OUT FOR?

The visually stunning scenery. The film moves at a methodical pace and as such, you will have time to swallow the images as they crash, like the sea, on the shore of your eyes.
