2018 Texas Cotton

There is a constant coming and going of patients in the waiting rooms of a 1960s hospital. They are suffering from cysts and strange protuberances that discharge a pus-filled liquid. A doctor has developed a machine to operate on them, but instead, it creates a grotesque monster that attacks the hospital staff.

Tyler Russel daringly ventures into organic body horror, the kind that makes cinemas erupt, scream with laughter and wince with disgust. In a time of today’s smooth, sanitised special effects, Russel takes a step back to 1980s exploitation cinema and the lavish extravagances of a Frank Henenlotter.
