Prometheus Triumphant: A Fugue in the key of Flesh

Prometheus Triumphant: A Fugue in the Key of Flesh (2009) is a modern homage to the silent film era. As if the pompous art house title wasn’t enough to steer you clear.

Some doctor has been experimenting with reanimating the dead and tries it out on his deceased girlfriend. Been there, resurrected that.

Prometheus Triumphant is in black and white and also uses those annoying pop-up dialogue boxes to convey conversation. What little blood there is looks black. And because there’s no sound other than a “rich symphonic score” (i.e., classical music with too many notes), you can’t hear anyone screaming.

And what is a horror movie without screaming? A BORING horror movie.
