Wallets Full of Blood: Roscommon Death Trip

category national | arts and media | feature author Friday July 09, 2010 10:34author by eeekkk Report this post to the editors

'The injustice of time - rendered obsolete.'

Rain falls on the snow. The Contagion has taken hold. Ghosts from the old Dead Republic are emerging everywhere as the day of judgement approaches.

On Black Tuesday a guilt ridden political functionary runs from his job burying bodies in the city. He is tortured by voices of reproach as he journeys towards home. He recounts the history of his dealings with Fingers - a boss 'who made the old boss look like Mother Teresa'.

Meanwhile, back in the city, amid the spiraling negativity, Fingers and his acolytes lay the foundations for a new Easter Rising.

'Roscommon Death Trip' is the final installment of the 'Wallets Full of Blood' trilogy. The previous installments were 'Houses on the Moon' (2009) and 'Zombie Banker Blues' (2009). They Are Available on this Vimeo page.

Well done to all concerned! Optimistic rhythm to the whole thing? Frightening but it does not really frighten me. Anyway love to all.
