Stuart Simpson's The Dark Psychosis
By: Craig Villinger on March 10, 2008  |  Comments ()  |  Share 
Take a killer chicken, tattoos with a taste for human flesh, a sea monster, psycho lepers roaming through a post-apocalyptic environment, and someone in desperate need of a day off work, and what have you got? Well, weirdness one would assume, and hopefully a lot of entertainment! Writer/Director Stuart Simpson recently gave us the low-down on his next project, and it will contain all the ingredients mentioned above, plus a whole lot more!

Since completing work on his feature debut The Demonsamongus back in 2006, Simpson and his team have been busy shooting various short films, and the good news is these shorts will all be bundled together to form The Dark Psychosis – a gory, twisted version of horror anthologies like Creepshow and The Twilight Zone which will clock in at around 70 minutes and feature 6 - 7 tales of terror and bloodshed. Four of the stories have already been completed (and if you've been out and about on the festival circuit you might have seen a few of them) – Sickie (about one woman's quest to get to work despite numerous obstacles), Greedy Guts (a drunken trip to a tattooist results in a flesh eating nightmare) Wakey Wakey, Eggs and Bakey (a film about a vengeance seeking chicken), and Lost Carriage (a psychological prison escape film) – and post-production is currently underway on the next chapter, Garden of Earthly Delights, about a beautiful female warrior-nomad walking the wastelands of a post apocalyptic future who stumbles across a cult of hostile and very leprous nut-jobs! Also slated for production in the coming months is a sea monster flick, and a tale about a time loop conundrum. Speaking about the production, Simpson promises us "There'll be heaps of blood and guts, cute girls and twisted storylines". Sounds like a winner to me!

We still have no idea when The Dark Psychosis will be ready for public consumption, but until them you can check out a few pics from Garden of Earthly Delights below. You can also check out the 7 minute short Sickie in all its gory glory in The DR Grindhouse.
