The Hook reports that director Brian Wimer’s new “Buddhist horror film” Mantra has won the Best Picture prize at this year’s Fright Night Film Fest. The film is “based on the director’s personal experience practicing bardo death-state meditations on a ten-day retreat with Buddhist monks in Dharamsala, India,” and is described as “a graphic, unflinching depiction of six people’s inner demons…a meditation on desire, delusion and death-resolving in rebirth and redemption-perhaps a first for a horror film.”
In addition, the film’s witty tagline is
“No one can save you from yourself.”
Watch the trailer and find out more about Mantra at its official website.
“A Buddhist horror film. Ten minutes of nudity. Twenty pints of blood. Four noble truths.”
