Christopher Webster [Celluloid 06.14.13] horror



A ghostly soldier comes face to face with this grim reality of his war-torn existence on the battlefield and beyond in this award-winning short film directed by iconic heavy metal and horror artist Wes Benscoter.

A twenty-year veteran of horrific illustration, Benscoter established his reputation with artwork for Slayer and Black Sabbath, and more extreme acts like Cattle Decapitation. He's also well-known for the DVD and Blu-ray cover art he's created for Synapse Films, Dark Sky Films, and more, including such classic treatments as THRILLER: A CRUEL STORY, THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, and the upcoming steelbooks for Lamberto Bava's DEMONS and DEMONS 2.


On the film's creation, Benscoter explains: "Shot in HD over many long, fog-shrouded weekends, I became an expert in predicting the dew-points needed for a foggy morning. I think the film is definitely of its era, and also timeless. I now think of HOLD YOUR FIRE as my ERASERHEAD."

Ok, I don't get it. The awards part I understand anything with an remotely anti military bent is going to get some amount of praise. This just strikes me as pointless, and historically not very accurate. Japan during WWII was bombed, nuked, but not invaded.
