Director: Rebekah McKendry
Year Released: 2022
While at a rest stop (in an unnamed place), a disheveled man named Wes (Ryan Kwanten) drinks a bottle of booze, burns up many of his belongings (including his pants) and ends up in the men's (barely functional) bathroom where, on the other side of a glory hole, ghastly demigod Ghatanothoa (voiced by J.K. Simmons) resides and keeps Wes imprisoned until his one request is met: he wants a piece of his liver (but no fava beans or Chianti). It's fundamentally a short movie 'blown up' to feature length (and based loosely on H.P. Lovecraft's work), and although it does an adequate job maneuvering around its single location, the "twist" at the end (if you can even call it that) isn't all that unexpected ... and I'm somewhat unsure why a terrible space beast wouldn't want to continue to see a mass murderer stacking up the bodies (you'd think villainy would be encouraged). Also: is there a way we can teleport the Son of Cthulhu to one of the toilets in the Kremlin? Just asking on behalf of the world....
