ALT | Altered States
Boasting a delightfully morbid premise and a chilling setup, Level 16 ratchets up the insidious sense of wrongness before unleashing a truly skin-crawling climax. Wedding of-the-moment concerns (think The Handmaid’s Tale) to throwback aesthetics (think Joss Whedon’s criminally under-appreciated Dollhouse by way of Argento employing a desaturated palette), Esterhazy crafts a sinister allegory that packs a wicked feminist punch.
