Friday Night Features: “Kitchen Sink” Short Film

Darlings, Valentine’s Day may have been yesterday, but I wanted to leave you with one final post touching on the subject of love and relationships to close out Valentine’s Week here on TYoH.  Since we’ve already established that love on TYoH can be an odd and horrifying thing, our Friday Night Feature this week is the 1989 short film Kitchen Sink, written and directed by Alison Maclane. This short, an extended metaphor for metamorphosis with an experimental film feel, swept eight awards when it debuted at the Cannes International Film Festival. It also has the distinction of being the first horror short to make me gag within the first 40 seconds (and again in the middle. and at the end). Enjoy!

  1. I gag real easy and I don’t feel like gagging right now – maybe tonight, after some cocktails.

  2. Eva,
    This short was great… It worked less for me on a plain horror perspective, but much more on the Absurd, like a Luis Buñuel movie. Thank for you sharing this.

  3. I’m afraid to watch it. 😦

  4. Incredible growing Sasquatch fetus; you can shave him, dress him, unravel him and call him your own!

  5. The sequel was the same thing except it was my belly button.
