The Void (2016)
I actually have a personal connection to Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostaski’s interdimensional nostalgia trip, having almost donated to their IndieGoGo account to support the production when I first heard about it, but failed to take the leap. Fortunately, as my initial viewing of the final product convinced me, they did not even need my help to reach their goal (financially or artistically) because, as far as I am concerned, they freaking nailed it. The Void, set during an understaffed hospital’s graveyard shift where an otherworldly evil begins to emerge, is pure Lovecraftian bliss, using practical effects that lovingly pay tribute to creature feature masterpieces of the ‘80s and make it clear this is a tale told for horror fans by horror fans.
