The low-budget independent film, The Taint, is now available in HD as well as DVD, and you can also pick up the soundtrack online.

Description: The water is tainted. The Taint poisons the minds of men. It turns them into raging misogynists: monsters who want nothing more than to kill women. When society is transformed into a land of sadistic violence and horrible brutality, it is up to Phil O’Ginny and his female friend, Misandra, to combat the horrible evil that is “the taint.”

Recently reviewed by our own Brian M. Sammons, The Taint is about violence, misogyny, and entertainment. It features sadistic violence, gratuitous sexual content, and scenes of spellbinding dramatic interest. The low-budget independent film was made in Richmond, VA with the help of many local artists and Virginia Commonwealth University students. It is a testament to guerilla style filmmaking and a great example of what can be accomplished outside of the studio system with very little money.
