This film looks like it’s going to be amazing – and already comes highly recommended from some of my friends. The Daily Mail gave it just one star, which is surely a good thing, considering that the people at The Daily Mail know fuck all about anything that’s worth knowing about. I love that they used ‘Dirge’ by Death In Vegas for the trailer – so perfect for this twisted feature film. ‘Stoker’ is the latest release from Park Chan-wook, the acclaimed South Korean director of 2003’s ‘Oldboy’.

‘Gloam’ is a beautiful new short film made by We Are The Forest (comprised of David Elwell & Gareth Hughes). It portrays the journey of a solitary creature making his way through the forest, and is both mysterious and melancholy. Even though the protagonist strikes me as somewhat creepy and bizarre, its character seems gentle and intriguing enough that you have a kind of empathy for him – it’s never revealed what’s in the forest, but I found myself hoping that this strange beast wouldn’t come to any harm. The moving soundtrack seems to evoke a kind of loneliness, and it’s like the creature is searching for something meaningful.
