OFFERINGS is coming to Limited Edition VHS!
Videonomicon is pleased to announce our 13th release with Torin Langen’s OFFERINGS! This extremely Limited Edition VHS will be strictly limited to only 13 copies and comes out later this month on Tuesday October 27th, 2020!
An exercise in ambient horror, OFFERINGS chronicles the rituals of a mysterious cult and the spaces they inhabit. Non-narrative and highly textured, the film functions as a distillation of folk horror imagery and expressionist filmmaking techniques.
Largely inspired by Xeroxed gig posters, the creatures found in OFFERINGS function as black metal album illustration brought to hulking, lumbering life. A visual and aural assault, OFFERINGS seeks to hypnotize and indoctrinate audiences into its fever dream nightmarescape.
Our Limited Edition VHS release features OFFERINGS not only once but thrice! The short film is presented on the tape with 3 unique soundtracks – the original score, and two live live scores; one by the VOC Silent Film Harmonic and the other by Dolphin Midwives that were recorded from film festival screenings, each adding another layer of uneasy ambience and an altogether different experience with each viewing.
But that’s not all! As an additional bonus, also included following the short film(s) is Torin Langen’s debut feature film 3 DEAD TRICK OR TREATERS (2017); a dialogue-less horror anthology that PopHorror.com calls a “dark descent into pure Halloween Hell!” Our previous VHS release of 3 DEAD TRICK OR TREATERS is long out of print, so if you missed out then this is the only other chance you’ll have to get Torin’s debut feature on black slab analogue!
VHS artwork reveal, full release details, and pre-order will be coming next week so stay tuned!
