The after-effects of war are seldom pretty, and two peoples' hells are rarely alike. This grisly directorial debut from award-winning graphics artist Wes Benscoter - you've almost certainly seen his art for such bands as Slayer, AC/DC, Black Sabbath and Kiss, among countless others - pulls you into a post-war personal hell that will stay vivid in your memory like an echoing scream across a long-abandoned killing field.
