Retro Trailer: "Begotten"

In the history of heady, mind-altering cinema, "Shadow of the Vampire" director E. Elias Merhige's unforgettable black-and-white freak-out "Begotten" ranks among the very best. The picture's so-called plot is more than a little bizarre, as it deals specifically with the God's self-inflicted disembowelment and the Son of Earth's journey through a twisted lanscape populated with twitchy cannibals. Fans of psychotronic cinema have been singing this film's praises for years, though you'll quickly discover it's a little difficult to locate on DVD for a price that's lower than your monthly mortage payments. Find someone who owns a copy, borrow it, and prepare yourself for a serious mental meltdown.
