With an artistic touch, the tattooist, painter, extreme body art performer and director Mikel Balerdi explores the perverse human impulses, the extreme, the profane and the taboo. Larva Mental is a combination of real and practical effects and deals with a lot of strong subject matters including suicide, self-harm, depression, necrophilia and drug abuse.
The plot centers around a girl (Dairi Gaona) who commits suicide after finding depraved videos of his father. After discovering the body, suffering pushes him to the point of madness.
Mikel Balerdi and Dairi Gaona star.
The practical effects are by Mikel Balerdi and Dairi Gaona.
MALEFICIA by Antoine Pellissier
Full of atrocities (dismemberment, beheadings, stabbings, eye gouging, tongue-ripping...), Maleficia begins with gruesome rituals and ends with an gory bloodbath.
SYNOPSIS: a family of nobles travel in a forest in which, in the same moment, a satanic cult completes human sacrifices made up of young girls. The group begins to torture and mutilate the chained sacrificial victims until death to summon the dead which arise to terrorize people and wreak more havoc.
