Gone Underground

Germany, 2000 (MIFF 2001, Fiction)

Director: Su Turhan

Blade Runner meets Psycho in this wildly stylised short shocker that graphically depicts the hazards of underground commuting. This futuristic German slasher film revels in gross-out filmmaking and the exploits of an ultra-slick femme fatale.
