Welcome back to Film Gutter everyone, and for our 'classics month' review this week I truly suggest you don your goggles and pop a peg on your nose, because this week the water pure and simple has a dead body floating in it. Yep, a rotting, stinking corpse. But why should that stop us going for a swim eh? It's time for us to finally brave one of the most notorious short films of all time, a regular feature on many people's 'most disturbing movies of all time' list. Let's get stuck into Aftermath.

Only the second piece of work from the director, Aftermath soon earned itself a reputation as a shocking piece by covering the taboo of necrophilia. The opening shot is certainly an attention grabber – a dog that looks rather like it has been run over, and has its organs pretty well splashed all over the place.

The rest of the action is set within a basement morgue, where we see a little of the everyday running of the place – a male body being delivered by an orderly, before being autopsied. This initial scene of the body being taken apart is presented absolutely unflinchingly. The visuals leave little to the imagination, but one thing that is effective in the first half of the movie – and even more so in the second – is the use of sound. The music in the film is used very sparingly, so what we mostly have is a funereal silence (not a word of dialogue spoken by any of the characters) punctuated by the crunching of bone, the squelching removal of organs and the insidious sound of saws and knives cutting through flesh. It's undoubtedly cleverly done, and is one of the things that makes the whole experience so unsettling.

Ah, but I haven't mentioned the second half yet, have I?

Spanish director Nacho Cerda's 3 short films The Awakening (1991), Aftermath (1994) and Genesis (1998) which are powerfully disturbing pieces of art. Aftermath deals with the unwholesome subject of necrophilia while Genesis neatly perverts the Pygmalion myth. Entirely devoid of dialogue, the films beg you to become involved in the proceedings and show Cerda's sizeable talent as a director and visual stylist. The Awakening deals primarily with the fear of what lies beyond the borders of mortality, shot in black and white it serves nicely as the first chapter of his so-called "Death Trilogy."

The second short Aftermath is as controversial as it is formidable. Two morticians are seen dissecting a couple of corpses. They saw and dismember the bodies and remove and replace organs all in lovely and convincing detail. After some needed cleanup our lead attendant is left alone to his own devices. An excruciating yet captivating thirty minutes of celluloid you will never forget.

The third short Genesis isn't nearly as gruesome, but does have the same claustrophobic atmosphere. A sculptor is seen preserving his dead wife's image in stone. As it nears completion the statue inexplicably starts to bleed. Visibly distraught, the artist delicately attempts to repair his cherished work of art to no avail. While I do understand the director's intentions, I must admit that I found this short to be a bit boring.

Accompaning the trio of films is a wealth of extra features, all tied to their respective films.

Spanish anomaly Nacho Cerda shines here with two short films made during the '90s - too bad the Spanish government don't hire him to direct autopsy films for aspiring young surgeons, the man can make dissection jump from the screen like no other.

"Aftermath" concerns a surgeon - an aspiring one perhaps, or just some dude from the street - whom dissects and copulates with a corpse. Why? she was the protagonist in a car crash that left the rapist's dog maimed, that's why, and boy is she going to pay, even in death. "Genesis" is far more gentle, describing a man who attempts to resurrect his dead wife in clay, which slowly animates itself and becomes organic as the man transforms into a *kouros* himself. High production values for such morbid cinema to be sure, and considering Cerda later made "The Abandoned" in 2006 which rather sucked, these films are his highpoint in a way.

Watch them in the bath to prevent your soul oxidising, don't let the TV set fall in or anything.

I was really disappointed by this after reading tons of reviews telling how good and realistic-looking it was. Not gory, disgusting or shocking at all. And it was too obvious that the dolls were made of cheap rubber. Just plain boring.

This review is for AFTERMATH: Expertly filmed Grim-Fest. Like The Butthole Surfers hijacking footage from Silent Witness. Ack! So very, very wrong.
