The trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s Volume 1 delivers on its promise of ‘more weird shit’

District 9 director Neill Blomkamp is working on a new project under his latest undertaking, Oats Studios. The company’s YouTube channel released the official trailer for Volume 1, presumably the first entry in a bizarre and bloody series of experimental films. Or possibly it’s a collection of images from a handful of those short films, as in Oats’ first volume of short films.

The Volume 1 trailer features a nonsensical mash-up of blood-soaked bodies, sci-fi dystopias, and Sigourney Weaver. Truly, I have no idea what’s going on here. There’s levitation, a whip-toting lizard creature, and (best guess) the cooking show from hell. At the very least, it’s consistent with the teaser released last month, in which it would appear that the aforementioned lizard race has imprisoned the people of Earth.
