Great news for Irish film as Limp, a new Irish horror film written and directed by Shaun Ryan, is part of the line-up for this year’s Seattle True Independent Film Festival. We gave the film 5 stars, so it is great that US audiences will have their chance to catch this extraordinary film.
The movie is an abstract horror which follows Mr Grott, a lonely man who is so infatuated by a woman that in order to be together he murders her. Now Mr Grott lives out his dream of having someone to love and be loved in a chaotic and disorientating world. All of this however cannot last and ultimately no good can come from this relationship.
The film stars Eoin Quinn (Fair City, The Hit Producer, Portrait of a Zombie) as Mr. Grott and Anne Gill (Quirke, Kings) as the unfortunate victim of his lust. The film also stars Laura Canavan Hayes (Shamocracy, Idir Mná ) and Shane Lennon (Fade Street) as an inner-city couple that have their own complications.
Limp was produced by Shaun Ryan’s production company “Crooked Creations” which was co-founded by Limp’s cinematographer Kevin Minogue. This micro budget film was financed independently for the sum of €900 with cast and crew donating their time to the project for free.
Limp features an exciting and unusual visual style, using multiple layers of imagery and quick cuts to keep the audience on its toes. This style lends itself to a more abstract way of storytelling having the viewer look for subtle moments imagery that reveal its plot to emphasise Mr. Grott’s psychosis.
STIFF 2014 runs May 2nd to 10th, with Limp screening on Thursday May 8th.
