Ian Simpson, the man behind Nadine, a lo-fi urban tale of an abused girl which both Rick (review) and I loved, has been quietly working on his newest feature. Man in Wood is an experimental piece on consciousness with horror elements which Simpson describes as "a cross between Fulci and Bresson." Below is a brief description, which we announced two years ago.

A woman wakes up from a nightmare involving a sexual encounter with a decomposed corpse in an isolated mountain cottage. An old hotel houses a dead spirit of her mother and the rotting carcass of a goatlike animal while a jukebox inexplicably plays her favored childhood pop songs. These are but a taste of the twisted insides that make up artist/filmmaker Ian Simpson's next horror-tinged outing, Man in Wood.


I've seen footage, stills, and while I still can't wrap my head around it I can tell you one thing: I'm really excited, almost sexually so. I'm going to have to try the horse head routine.
