John Carpenter’s horror films have been massively influential, and “The Void” is a good example. I haven’t really heard about it till now, and boy am I pumped from seeing what they’ve done here. It’s clearly inspired by “The Thing” in all the best ways: grotesque gore, brought to life via top-notch practical effects. “The Void” screened at Fantastic Fest to rave reviews, which the first trailer capitalises on. We’ve also included an earlier trailer from late last year, and it makes the film seem pretty darn promising. Beware, the footage is somewhat NSFW…

Here’s the official synopsis: “Encountering a blood-soaked man on a dark deserted road, a police officer rushes the victim to the local hospital. Soon the staff and patients are trapped by a terrifying, otherworldly threat and forced on a hellish voyage into the depths of the building to escape the nightmare. Shocking, haunting and boasting mind-blowing practical special effects, The Void is a new must-see horror event, starring Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs the World), Kathleen Munroe (Alphas), Aaron Poole (Forsaken) and Kenneth Welsh (The Aviator) and Daniel Fathers. Written and directed by Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski and from the Executive Producer of The Witch.”

“The Void” premieres 31st March in the UK. No word on a local release yet.
