Something Else Unclassified 18+
“Sublime and emotional, Something Else is one hell of a love story, a nightmarish monster movie, and an overall fantastical experience. Five stars.” – Dread Central
Hank and Abby are deeply in love – or, at least, that’s what Hank thinks until he finds a Dear John note from Abby. With his love gone, Hank descends into a spiral of depression, drowning his sorrows in alcohol, watching cable TV late into the small hours … and being visited each evening by what he starts to believe is some kind of monster. But is Hank being visited by a hungry animal, as his friends believe, or haunted by something more supernatural?
Produced by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (directors of MIFF 2017 hit The Endless) and featuring Benson in a supporting role, the latest film from star, writer and co-director Jeremy Gardner follows in the footsteps of his award-winning cult hit debut The Battery, which used supernatural themes to build an intricate tale of a complicated relationship between two friends. Gardner spent six years developing the script for Something Else, a beautifully realised film about the monsters we create for ourselves.
“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry … and you’ll jump right out of your seat at least once.” – Rue Morgue
