“I’m exploring things I don’t know about. Sometimes that’s scary and sometimes that’s funny.” That’s how Calvin Lee Reeder explains his working method. Whether you’ll think The Procedure scary or funny, will depend greatly on your degree of empathy for the main character, who undergoes a mysterious procedure.
Another quote of Reeder speaking about his own films: “His work is a stark mix of underground horror shock with existentialist atmosphere, putting the art into lo-fi splatter pics.” Anyone who’s seen The Procedure – and we’re purposely keeping mum about the film – knows that that’s grandstanding. But also a little bit true.
