Partehartzailea: Barbara Hershey.

The screen literally explodes with a tumult of faces, shattering the original cinematography into shards of frightened eyes, trembling hands, and violent outbursts of self-defense, presented in multiple exposures too layered to count, too arresting to ignore. Each frame is further entangled with details revealed by a jittery effect (a primitve traveling matte?) which spills fluttering ectoplasmic lightpools from one cubist aspect of the woman to another. The filmmaker mimics the action of nightmares by condensing the original imagery of the feature and displacing it into a new narrative, as in dreams, a narrative not explicity linked to actual events, but emotionally more true than any rational explanation. Tscherkassky´s shorts are actually considerably more terrifying than the original material.
/ Guy Maddin.

CCCB web:
El elemento fundamental de esta obra está constituido por found footage de Hollywood. La premonición de un film de terror, del peligro que acecha: una casa -de noche- sobresale de un fondo totalmente negro y a continuación vuelve a sumergirse en él. Una mujer joven empieza a acercarse lentamente al edificio. Entra en él. Los cortes del film crujen, la banda sonora chirría, sofocada, ahogada.

Hizketarik gabe.
Sin diálogos.
