New video of Knot Nine, sung by Rosie Riggir, end credits song from New Zealand Horror Film, WOUND, edited by Eddie Larsen, directed by David Blyth

WOUND is a feature film, written and directed by David Blyth, New Zealand's controversial cult / horror film maker. www.davidblyth.com
Filming was completed on 31st January 2010.

WOUND is a Supernatural Horror Film that explores the dark worlds of mental illness, incest, revenge and death. We follow Tanya as she searches for the mother she has never met – a mother (Susan) who gave her up for dead after being abused by her own father who remains stuck in her present life.

Tanya returns from the dead to confront and possess Susan with all her deepest fears and desires, sending Susan into a state of madness and gore filled retribution.

WOUND explores and confronts the dark, distorted supernatural world that lurks within us all.

A young woman, alone, attempts to fight the demons that begin to haunt her days and nights -- in a series of brutal confrontations with the enemies of the past who want to possess and kill her.

But, they are all members of her own family ... of her own self.

A dark, disturbing look into a haunted woman's mind.

This is one terrible dream you will never wake up from.

Wound Reviews


Ken Russell Review

A two-headed doll! Iron-phallused Pig-man stealth! Birthing your own twin! The nightclub of dream-wandering! If your family of origin doesn’t kill you, you may just make it. You will love Kate O’Rourke as she encounters her delirious, incestuous monsters of the id in this romantically charged Gothic psycho-sexual horror tale by my fellow enfant terrible David Blyth. Gorgeous images and repulsive dream-surgery into the recesses of female consciousness. Enter at your own peril! A masterpiece!
– Ken Russell

Definitive review of Wound on Wider Screenings

"fresh, grotesque, polarising and smart"
- http://www.flicks.co.nz/movie/wound/

"a benchmark in the genre"
- The Conduit Speaks

"Rarely before have I had my senses so rubbed raw"
- Hell Street Journal

Wound in Top 13 Movie Pick

"Clocking in at a lean, mean and bloody 75 minutes there is hardly a moment for rest as images of suffering, bondage and violence follow one after the other, repeatedly testing the fortitude of the viewer"
- Twitchfilm Review

This film is shocking, controversial, sick, depressing, and cruel.
- http://www.horrorphilia.net review


The Producers acknowledge the sources of the following:

Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices that,
If I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me that,
when I waked, I cried to dream again

- William Shakespeare - Caliban, The Tempest

"I love you, I love you knot. With each tie I make you mine
By the second, we're bound in pleasure
With the third, I join my life, my treasure
Through the fourth, all wounds burned closed
In the fifth, all pain disposed
With each string my heart creates
Death itself cannot forsake The One who fate has knit for me...
And as I seal the ties that bind, I stitch my love to knot
Nine with a kiss for my sweet Angel Mine."

`Stitch of Nine' by E. Takcas

"Her daughter
you caught a glimpse of her daughter
when she opened the door
half opened the door
and you knew
then and there
that her story
would continue
through her daughter."
Poem written and performed by Richard von Sturmer
