Friday Night Film - BLISS

Image for this story

This week’s Friday Night Film pick is a slice of modern-day grindhouse cinema with Joe Begos’s blood-soaked, drug-fuelled horror film BLISS.
Heavily influenced by the sleazy early career exploitation films of Abel Ferrara, with particular nods to Driller Killer and The Addiction, Bliss is stripped-back genre fare set in the scuzzy underworld of Los Angeles.
Struggling artist Dezzy turns to a new hallucinogenic drug for artistic inspiration but her life descends into chaos when insatiable cravings take over. Shot on 16mm with a grunge aesthetic and indulgent levels of gore - Bliss is an unhinged, sensory trip.
