Butcher’s Hook, a film by Simon Pummell

“Butcher’s hook” is Cockney rhyming slang for “look”, something alluded to in this short and wordless blend of live action and animation. But it also has a more sinister connotation when the fate of the taxidermist becomes apparent. As with Pummell’s earlier Secret Joy of Falling Angels, animal skeletons and silhouettes predominate. The film was co-written by novelist Simon Ings while the sound is by regular Quay Brothers collaborator Larry Sider.

    That’s pretty great. Not spooky genius like, say, the Quay Bros at their best, but it would have made one hell of a cool video for a Nineties iindustrial band like Ministry or Skinny Puppy.
