Unit 22

by Syd Briscoe

Redrum: “Unit 22” - 4 mins 17s

There's a grimy weight to this dark claymation promo for Redrum's 'Unit 22' which instantly sucks the audience into its world. Set during a rave on a dystopian frequency, the highly stylised action takes some seriously unexpected twists and turns once the, er, right substances are consumed.

As a tracksuited DJ becomes a demon and punters have their faces (and everything else) literally melted by his tunes, the film develops the distinct feel of a waking nightmare. Claustrophobic and ever-shifting, its crude approximation of guts and bones in the dingy room make us wonder if, indeed, we haven't been looking at hell the whole time. Rough around the edges, sure, but worth getting lost in.
