About the Movie
John Bergin's award-winning animated feature, FROM INSIDE, returns with a special edition score by Electronic and Industrial Music pioneer, Gary Numan, and music producer Ade Fenton. Based on the epic graphic novel by John Bergin, the film tells the story of Cee, a young pregnant woman travelling across a vast post-apocalyptic landscape on a train full of survivors. Cee holds onto hope as the massive locomotive pulls its passengers toward their destiny. John Bergin's work exists in a world of perpetual darkness. His artistry lies not so much in his ability to maintain this dark vision (which he does with a vengeance), but in his ability to build a rich and complex world inside such a singular dimension. The beauty of his art uplifts you, while its devastating message crushes you to dust. Numan and Fenton's score perfectly supports and complements the film's dark subject matter, breathing life into the story and keeping it on the hopeful side of suffocating nihilism. From Inside has screened in over 35 film festivals around the world and garnered Winner: Best Animated Film at the prestigious SITGES International Film Festival; Winner: Best Feature at Utopiales; Winner: First Feature at Fantasia, to name a few.

The visuals get old after the first 15 minutes. The soundtrack is very good, fitting the mood, but unfortunately, it’s repetitive because the movie is repetitive. If this was a 20-minute short, it would have been worth a look, but it was over an hour and a half of one depressing visual after another. The writer, director, animator, creator needs therapy. The creative poetic license should have been revoked after 20 minutes. After being depressed further and further for over 90 minutes, you’re rewarded with more depression. There is no happy ending in the film. The only satisfaction I got out of this movie was when it was over. Edit to less than 20 minutes, and you’ll have an artsy sob story. As it is, absolutely horrible.
