The Void is already definitely one of the best horror movies of 2017 so far, but expect it to remain a contender for top genre offering of the year—it’ll be hard to beat. Fans of John Carpenter’s The Thing and the best & goriest examples of Lovecraftian horror should consider The Void a must see. It’s scary as hell, but it’s also a love letter to the practical FX of the 1980s, one that proves cutting-edge CGI technology isn’t necessarily the best.
For a rare look into what it took to bring the creatures in The Void to life, check out the featurette below: Behind the Monsters. It’ll give you an appreciation for the creativity and the science behind creating elite gore FX the old fashioned way!

The Void is available to stream on iTunes and On Demand with a DVD coming this Tuesday; believe me when I say this film is a must-see. Check out the trailer, synopsis, and poster for The Void, directed by Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski, below.
Official Synopsis: In the middle of a routine patrol, officer Daniel Carter happens upon a blood-soaked figure limping down a deserted stretch of road. He rushes the young man to a nearby rural hospital staffed by a skeleton crew, only to discover that patients and personnel are transforming into something inhuman. As the horror intensifies, Carter leads the other survivors on a hellish voyage into the subterranean depths of the hospital in a desperate bid to end the nightmare before it’s too late.
The Void stars Aaron Poole, Kenneth Welsh, and Daniel Fathers.
