Experiments in Terror
Abstract & Experimental Horror

As if by some irresistible compulsion to witness the mortification of the flesh, EXPERIMENTS IN TERROR perversely unearths a celluloid sarcophagus of horrible, horrible beauty...

...a phantasmagoria of the uncanny, the dreadful, and the macabre...

...a pathological delirium of witchcraft, phantoms, and the undead. Using visionary cinematography and a masterful montage of rare film artifacts, these amoral auteurs probe every dark corner of the human psyche, with morbid curiousity and in lurid detail! This shocking program explodes the genre of the horror film, profoundly expanding the cinematic language of fear.
