365 Horror Films – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

So by now you’ve probably heard us make mention of it here previously, or read about it on the net, but the most recent Horror Hound Weekend (Cincinatti March) was an absolute madhouse. This is not us complaining, we were thrilled to see such a great turn out for a convention that deserves it, but add to that this 365 field reporter being on crutches, and it turned into a nightmare for thorough convention coverage. I actually need to finish up the review of that weekend. As much as I wanted to see and review many of the films screened that weekend, it was just impossible. To the rescue comes family Video. As was happy to see that just a few month after missing this screening this film was up for rent at my local rental establishment. Continue reading 365 Horror Films – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

Martyrcycle, The – Chvad SB “Gut” (2014)

I’ll just start this out by stating the obvious: sometimes I lag. I can get so caught up in the day to day activities of being married, having kids and just being a badass, that sometimes things can unfortunately be put on the backburner, without me realizing it. Such was the case with Elias Ganster’s horror thriller GUT. I was sent the film a few months ago, but with the hectic schedule that followed (covering Fantastic Fest, moving, etc), I just accidentally forgot about it until recently. Lucky for me, it was well worth the wait, as it’s a well written thriller, with great pacing and some very solid execution.  Continue reading Martyrcycle, The – Chvad SB “Gut” (2014)

Filmscope – Chvad SB “GUT (2013)

Gut hits you exactly where the title says so – smack bang right in the midriff. This unnerving low budget psychological horror, directed by Elias , details the breakdown of a friendship between two men that leads them into a very dark place.

Tom (Jason Vail) is married to Lily and father of young daughter Katie, holding down a good job and home where everything seems in place. Yet he doesn’t feel content, wandering if this is all there is to life or if he is missing out on something. He works with his lifelong friend Dan (Nicholas Wilder) who is still stuck back in his twenties, a little resentful that Tom has grown up to deal with his responsibilities.

Dan thinks he can bring them back together as close buddies once they see this new DVD he has ordered off the net, something edgier than the usual retro horrors they used to watch. It certainly does the trick as their bond strengthens in the shared knowledge of a sordid secret.

Gut walks the line between eroticism and violence, similar to how Cronenberg can sterilize your mind with his cold, clinical approach. Chvad SB lays down a very simple and highly effective score to create a sometimes nauseous atmosphere as the two friends struggle to remove the images from their thoughts.

This is a film that demonstrates the power of a perfectly pitched score, knowing when to pipe up and when to sit back and let the scene breathe. The thinking time given to the characters provides plenty of time for the music to ratchet up the tension. We wait as the characters do. Time ticks by under the weight of their angst at times not speaking for a few minutes, the camera focusing on their worrying late at night in bed or trying to get their heads straight.

It becomes hypnotic listening to the slow guitar licks between the slow breakdown of the friendship which is where that off kilter feeling comes from. That is where the strength of the film really lies by removing the dialogue and exposition usually created to map everything out. It leaves too much time for you own mind to start thinking of the worst, like part of their hidden pact.

JWR – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

Best just to look away

After a promising start in his quilt-like first feature (cross-reference below), Elias has become a filmmaker of note with Gut.

This film is often difficult to watch but so are the many murderous tragedies that play out in real time daily.

The storyline—two best friends (Jason Vail as family man, Tom; Nicholas Wilder plays lonely single, Dan) share a common interest in viewing homemade snuff films of beautiful women—resonates far beyond its surface meaning: those who savour, clamour for then—ultimately—produce their own child porn, gore porn or real-life death come from all walks of life and show no signs of going away anytime soon. Worse: the ability to share these gruesome images with “anyone, anytime, anywhere,” in this everyone-is-a-filmmaker age only encourages the sick and depraved amongst us to find an even wider audience of admirers then copycats. Sadly, Luka Magnotta’s horrific dismemberment of Jun Lin bears witness to this awful truth. His “fifteen minutes of fame” have gone far beyond anything Andy Warhol could have imagined.

With just a few sets (shared office space, local diner, the homes of both buds), and a narrative that starts at the end but very slowly and deliberately teases out the journey to the final frames, using frequent blackouts adds both to the mystery and verisimilitude of the deadly tale. Like a stage play, each scene has its purpose and, once achieved, it’s cut to another shade of the dark side: reflect, repeat.

CHVAD SB’s guitar-laden score deftly reinforces the growing unease until an extended wail of near-distortion—marvelously following Tom’s final full-face, silent horror—brings everything to a close with an electronic shudder that pierces right to the core.

Film Deviant – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

FILM REVIEW: Gut (2012)

We usually try our best to champion great independent films deserving of exposure around these parts. However, a poor film is a poor film…no matter how big or small the budget is. And while Gut is not a poor film…it certainly isn’t a good example of great independent filmmaking. Which sucks because this film should have been nothing short of great. Let’s begin our review…shall we? Continue reading Film Deviant – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

Ryan’s Reviews – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

Excerpt from Ryan’s Reviews:
“…as well as the score, which I was especially enamored by. As the film goes on, the music becomes less harmonic and more tonally dissonant, and this non-standard music helped to build the chaos that is overwhelming Dan and Tom’s lives.”

Video Views – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

Something is missing in Tom’s life. Every day he goes through the motions, becoming increasingly detached from those around him. His best friend Dan thinks he has the answer, a mysterious video he’s got to see to believe. What Dan shows him leaves Tom unsettled, flooding his mind with disturbing images and desires, and binding the two friends together with its ugly secret. As he tries desperately to forget what he saw, Tom’s mounting feelings of guilt and disillusionment quickly give way to paranoia and fear. One video soon follows another and another, blurring the line between reality and voyeuristic fascination, and threatening to dismantle everything around them.

Avant Music News – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

“Gut” is the original soundtrack to an indie movie about some very disturbing videos and their devastating effect on the two very middle-class friends who watch them. In a wonderfully low-budget backstory, Chvad SB is said to have sat himself down in front of the television with the film on and sweated his way through its composition, striving to capture the brokenness of its characters, hunched over the guitar in his lap.

Slashers Starlets and Sleaze – Chvad SB “GUT” (2013)

Indie Flix: Gut (2012)

GUT is a study of the obsession and hypersexualization of horror and violence. Tom is bored with his work-a-day life and is trying desperately to change it. Tom is wishy washy and afraid to do anything to change the status quo in any of his relationships. He has grown cold toward his wife, Lily, though she does not seem to notice; and he is trying to find a new home for them without telling Dan. Dan is Tom’s best friend and he is not happy with how distant Tom has become. As childhood best friends they made and watched horror movies though now their only shared activity is a lunch break from work spent at the diner. Tom has a beautiful wife and young daughter and Dan has his bachelor life spending it bumming rides or watching movies. Both seem earnest and likable characters-each with their own faults-until Dan receives a mysterious dvd-r that he originally claimed to have ordered from a website. Dan is in high spirits the day after he watches it and invites Tom over to see for himself. Afterwards Tom is disgusted and outraged and storms out of Dan’s apartment.
