Film Details

Go Down Death

United States | 2013 | Aaron Schimberg

Go Down Death

Step aside, David Lynch and Guy Maddin. Make room for Aaron Schimberg and his mysterious, malignant new amalgam of American Gothic, surrealism, frontier tall tale, and outsider art. Shot in black-and-white16mm, Go Down Death (which is based on folk tales by the fictional Jonathan Mallory Sinus) is an apocalyptic fable set in a crumbling village haunted by disease, superstition, and the supernatural, where prostitutes and johns inhabit a dingy brothel and soldiers and shape-shifting doctors wander about. "An astonishing, out-of-nowhere film…Amidst all the cookie-cutter indies, Aaron Schimberg’s Go Down Death casts a mysterious spell…Highly recommended." -Filmmaker Magazine.
