The Law of Sodom


The Law of Sodom is an award winning experimental horror short film, visualizing the terror one goes through when suffering from schizophrenia, directly out of the mind of a schizophrenic. It will take you on a trip through the darkest and most terrifying places of the human mind, through a mental hell, a hell of grotesque hallucinations, the most extreme and violent obsessive thoughts and paranoid delusions, a world in which only one law applies: The law of destruction, the law of Sodom.

Information for the Audience: 

The Law of Sodom is a film that is purely based on personal experience by the director. The film is a visualization of schizophrenia, written by a schizophrenic exclusively while being psychotic. It is intended to make people feel something they often can't or don't want to understand, and let them know what a horrible burden a psychological illness can be. The very last scene of the film, with the director portraying himself, is not acted, but absolutely real.
