Merge (Australia, 10)

Directed by: Erin Coates

In Merge the confined space of a mindlessly generic sedan interior is slowly consumed and eventually merged – through violent rupture – to the outside, by an overactive, nippled, red ‘horror-airbag’. The intense, ambisonic score for this film heightens the menacing yet oddly comic transformation taking place.
