With a nod to Japanese horror films and some natty stop motion head regeneration, Craig Murray tells the odd tale of a man who visits a strange young girl. As things go, he ends up getting his head cut off, so it’s fortunate that he can grow another one.

Influenced by Jan Svankmajer, Asian exploitation films, Gaspar Noe, Indiana Jones and Godspeed You Black Emperor, Craig Murray says: “Creating the head was a lenthy process involving casting, moulding, layering colour into the chamber, not to mention the stop-motion heating process used to capture the sequence.”
