Cult appeal.

by Andrew MacGregor


Short Films: “Cult” - 10 mins 13s

Since 2015, director Joseph Delaney has been busy with SORT, an online 'zine dissecting modern definitions of beauty. To mark its third issue, Delaney has shot an intriguing short film based on a fictional cult’s descent into oblivion.

Delaney creates palpable dread through grainy photography and abrasive sound design. Actor Rose McGowan’s whispered narration offers fleeting guidance - instead, the viewer must rely on their wits. Tune into the film’s carnal frequency if you dare.
