"Tentacles in a Twisted Deathdream" - Part of Stephen Romano's "Shock Festival". Starring Christopher Dimock. Directed/Edited by Adrian Santiago. Shot by Daniel Patterson. Special Effects/Boom operation by Garrett Wilkerson.
"Tentacles in a Twisted Deathdream" is a psychotic "thriller" about acid eaters searching for the true meaning of death. "Deathdream" follows the exploits of a group of hippies who drop an unnamed drug and become savage, paranoid killers, living in and out of nightmares about “The Twisted Monster,” an undefined malevolence which forces them to new and more sadistic acts of violence. The film moves through a series of arresting, orgiastic images, intercut with gory carnage.
In the final reel, all three men are consumed by madness in a three-way shootout in the Arizona desert. It is much less linear and far more surreal than its exploitive, mainstream ad campaign made it out to be, featuring long passages of life-worn prose, spoken by the film’s protagonist over the weird, psychedelic images.
