This week’s film is “Empire Of The Dark,” a film with a plot that is “something about an ex-cop/bounty hunter who forgot he left his wife to burn in hell or something.” But the true star of the show is the “utterly mind-bending editing and gonzo special effects, featuring puppets, miniatures, action figures and stop-motion animation.”
