Marinah Janello’s latest short film, “Entropia”, is taking festivals by storm.
Entropia, in a nutshell, is a story about what a woman is willing to go through in order to gain her youth back. Scene after flesh crawling scene we experience our protagonist (played by the ever talented Sissy O’Hara) battling menopause using methods that are, to say the least, unorthodox. With the support of her taxidermied friends and a few brews of tampon tea, it finally works. Bring on the menstruation celebration!!
The overall aesthetic of the film is beyond bewitching. Everything from set design to the beautifully intimate cinematography of Amanda McGrady comes together with music by Evan Phennicie to produce a film that stretches so far beyond the reaches of customary horror. Entropia almost plays like a Lifetime story from the 90s yet, its contrasted with cringing body horror. Perfectly blended together to leave audiences with a what-the-fuck-is-going-on expression throughout.
The film celebrates womanhood is such a manner that viewers go away anxious to share highlights and stories with friends. However, you really don’t know until you know. This writer recommends that you go out and find it on the festival trail. If you can’t find it, go out and contact local festivals and encourage them to take a look.
