All Flowers in Time (2010)

All Flowers in Time from Centre Phi | Phi Centre on Vimeo.

"Director Jonathan Caouette took the red-eye effect to a new level in his 2010 short film All Flowers in Time, which was just released online for the first time. The film relies heavily on dream logic, a la David Lynch—its 'plot' concerns a young American family watching a French cowboy host a surreal Dutch TV show that broadcasts sinister waves that deeply affect viewers, giving them red glowing eyes and making them believe they can transform into monsters. This visually and sonically arresting film gets under your skin quickly, pushing the boundaries of the short horror film to the limit.

"The characters who inhabit the TV are disconnected and even disembodied as they rattle eccentric sayings from their mouths. The uneasiness is lapped up by the viewers, played by Chloë Sevigny and Chandler Frantz."
