1313: Bermuda Triangle, 2011: Ever an innovator, DeCoteau’s retelling of the all-time favorite ‘Treasure Island’ demands respect, if only for the fact that he keeps his female characters tauntingly clothed in spandex.

1313: Night of the Widow, 2012: The oneiric take on ‘Tender Is the Night’ takes us though the motions of grief and acceptance, as the young protagonist slowly looses his garments in bouts of violent madness.
1313: Frankenqueen, 2012: The existential exploration of motifs of life and death, Frankenqeen tells a story of the pursuit of eternal youth, of young men all too eager to undress, and of botox taken a step too far.
1313: Hercules Unbound, 2012: This postmodern kaleidoscope of Greek mythology dazzles with oil-dripping musculature. Interpreted as a desperate cry of a modern man alienated by technology and yearning for the simpler times, Hercules Unbound was filmed entirely in a metalanguage.
