The Void Is 2017's Most 'Dark And Demented' Horror Film
Come April, there's a good chance you might find yourself putting on a pair of brown corduroys and heading down to your local cinema to feast your eyes on 2017 horror film The Void.
The flick revolves around a police officer called Carter (played by Aaron Poole) who discovers a blood-soaked man limping down a deserted road. After rushing him to hospital for immediate night shift work, cloaked, cult-looking figures surround the building, driving the patients and staff inside "ravenously insane".

Put in a do-or-die pot of glue, Carter takes the survivors into the depths of the hospital where they "discover a gateway to immense evil."
The Void also stars household names like Kathleen Munroe, Ellen Wong, Kenneth Walsh, Evan Stern, Daniel Fathers and Grace Munro.
The new teaser trailer doesn't spill too many beans, but doesn't that add to the attraction?
Brad Miska, of Bloody Disgusting fame, gave a favourable review, stating that The Void is "More than a work of art than a great horror film. However, since it's sprinkled with questionable acting, a weak screenplay, and is so incredibly dense that it will be hard to warrant multiple viewings. Thankfully, The Void's craft is so spectacular that it carries the film on its back.

"In the end, there's something moderately annoying about filmmakers copying great films/filmmakers of the past, but The Void manages to get away with it (probably because Astron-6 take many things from Carpenter, Barker, and even Fulci, and make it their own). Astron-6 have announced themselves with The Void, a dark, demented, and disgusting horror film that's going to live among the greatest body horror films of all time."
The trailer comes weeks after the preview for Raw dropped in January.
Raw tells the tale of 16-year-old Justine, a vegetarian, who is a promising student at a veterinary school. Things quickly take a turn once she enters a world of "hazing rituals", desperate to fit it in whatever the cost, even going as far as to eat raw meat for the first time in her life, which then leads her to "unexpected consequences".
Looks like a big year for horror.
