“Every single frame is like a painting, beautifully composed, a sumptuous feast for the eyes.”
“An aesthetically gore-geous throwback to the video nasties era and all that VHS quality goodness.”
“NASTY’s enormous triumph, for me, is that it uses every naturalistic and hallucinogenic chance it gets to hardwire you inside that experience. Draws a super-clear line between the imaginary and the real. Then pries your brain apart and drags you through the luminous VHS gateway to revelation.”
John Skipp, Fungasm Press.
“An ultra-stylish and thoroughly entertaining work from a highly promising filmmaker.”
Benjamin Brown, Edinburgh Short Film Festival
