Lea Cummings & Sarah Glass - Night Of The Bloody Antler( DVDR & CDR) [kovoroxsound - 2015]

Night Of The Bloody Antler is first low-budget feature film from Scottish noise scene  duo Lea Cummings & Sarah Glass. The film is a 66 minute mix of micro budget horror, dread filled psychedelic imagery, and the bleak-ness of the Scottish countryside.  This two disc set brings together the film on a DVDR, and the films soundtrack on a CDR.

Before we get into the visuals & sonics of the film & soundtrack, I think itís best to introduce the two people behind the project. Lea Cummings has been creating work since the early 2000ís, and is really one of the mostly widely known figures with-in the British noise scene- with his most know project been Kylie Minoise.  Sarah Glass is connected to projects such as Grimalkin555, Okishima Island Tourist Association, The Fnords, Opaque, Nosferatu Pharmaceuticals, Kovorox Aktion Group- and many of these find her working with Mr Cummings

The two discs come in a  clear double DVD case that features double sided colour pro printed sleeve. On the front cover we get a stacked picture of someone dressed in a boiler suit, holding an axe & wearing a deer mask. And on the back cover a picture of a figure standing on a small bridge against a bleak woodland back drop. Both discs feature pro printed fronts, and on the whole itís a very pro looking package.

So moving onto to the discs themselves-  the first one takes in just the film. This 66 minute film is a tale of a young man & women who are meant to meeting a group of fellow hikers for a walk- we have a chatting & buoyant female, and a more reserved & quite male. I wonít really want to give too much else away about the films  plot, as I think itís the type of film you need to know as little as possible about. The films a mix of interactions between the pair, lengthy trips into dread filled psychedelic imagery, & slasher point of view shots. And on the whole itís a charming enough slice of low-budget film making with both the lads giving  fairly good performances.

The second disc takes in the soundtrack, and this is  by Nosferatu Pharmaceuticals- which brings together Cummings & Glass. This disc takes in a 56 minute playing time and seventeen tracks- these are a dread filled & heady mix lo-if  retro synth sound tracking, and brooding noise craft. On the whole itís a most enjoyable collection of tracks which manages to stand well in their own right away from the film itís self- so if you enjoy lo-fi, retro 70ís/ 80ís horror sound tracking this will be right up your street. In the past this project has only ever released one other release, and that came in the form of 2011ís Banishes Groundless Fear, Wretchedness And Thought, so itís great to see it return for this soundtrack.

All in all I must say I was quite taken by both the film & the soundtrack, and if you enjoy mirco-budget film-making with elements of horror & psychedelic visuals Iím sure youíll enjoy this too. It can be purchased direct from here for the very reasonable  price of £12.00 for the two disc set.
