Loom (2010)

Directors: Jan Bitzer, Ilija Brunck, Csaba Letay

This astonishing animated short film took a year to make, now that is patience but patience well worth it. Loom is directed by first time director Jan Bitzer, and if this incredible short is anything to go by, we can expect a lot more interesting stuff. A simple tale of moth lands in spiders web, moth struggles, spider appears, paralyses and eats its prey is given an incredible look and feel and is, strangely enough, rather intimate. Dark and intense, Loom is actually a bit frightening in places, also quite upsetting as somehow it looks like the moth is terrified without actually showing any facial expression. This is great stuff, truly great stuff and I hope you can spare the five minutes running time to enjoy it. Here is the synopsis:

A moth being caught in a spiders web. Struggling for an escape, the moths panic movements only result in less chance of survival. What follows is the type of causality everyone’s expecting. The spider appears, claims its prey and feeds on it. The way nature works. But it’s the point of view that creates an intense relationship between the hunter and its victim. There is much more to explore, much more to feel if one takes the time to really experience the content of a split second.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
