A visceral, hypnotic and hallucinatory tale.
From the chemistry between the all-female cast to the masterful direction and prophetic script, every element works in harmony.
A story about breaking up, while trying to keep it together.
A bloody, imaginative and immensely enjoyable take on the zombie film.
A film that is not only haunting and powerful, but vital.
A sharp and moving feature – smart, touching and worth your time.
Showing a different side to the things that go bump in the night.
A unique moral dilemma with a standout performance from its lead.
An at once clinical and yet strangely tender story, Dogs Don’t Wear Pants is appropriately a film about contrasts.
A grimy, bloody, off-kilter thriller with moments of pitch black comedy.
