Sulphur for Leviathan - Poster and Trailer

Sulphur for Leviathan is an upcoming arthouse horror short and marks one of Sodom & Chimera Productions’ most radical and controversial films so far. The film is very conceptual, and was shot on Super 8 and 16mm, also making use of the dead format that is 9,5mm.

The story of Sulphur for Leviathan revolves around a nun, who suddenly finds herself progressively fantasizing about things that shouldn’t be in her head, increasingly having to face her own doings of blasphemy, all leading up to something demonically dark and sinister. Portrayed in a surreal manner both in color and black and white, with a heavy focus on elegant cinematography, the film tells a satanic tale of unfulfilled desires, lust, blasphemy and existential dread, packed in a controversial and disturbing, but calm and poetic experience that is heavily inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky, with a touch of satanism.

Written & directed by James Quinn.

Starring Susan M. Martin (Plank Face), Jerry Larew (She Was So Pretty 1 & 2) and Craig Long in the lead roles.
