James Green pulls out all the stops and has a lot of fun in this 60s/70s-style B-movie shocker about the demonic power of rock music.

This rum tale about a producer's greed at the alluring power of Death Dips by Hastings band Kid Kapichi, is much enhanced by being shot on glorious Kodak 16mm film.


"Inspired by the lyrics which describe a never-ending search for the ultimate high, I decided to write a fun narrative where the song itself becomes that high. It ended up taking heavy influence from 70s B-Movie aesthetics, being shot on 16mm film. The project was pulled together in just a week on a very small budget."
