| Maybe The Joke Is On Us ?
You could be forgiven for thinking that Meloni Poole's DISH is an erotic short horror film . The story starts with young woman Mo frequenting a nightclub and actress is made up to resemble the common perception of what a vampire might look like if they existed - Pale skin , dark hair , red lips and a kind of understated sublime beauty . She then meets a young man called Pete outside the club and they then depart to Mo's flat . You don't have to be much of a film expert or Gothic horror novels to conjure up what might be happening next and throughout the running time Poole hints that something nasty will be happening to Pete

As the end credits came up I was in two minds as to what Poole was trying to do with DISH . It should be said that the ending is totally unexpected and that's not a compliment I'm afraid . It could be that Poole was trying to lull the audience into thinking they were going to be watching a ten minute version of DRACULA'S DAUGHTER since the imagery of red liquid in the bath hints at it but that's not what we actually get at the end so maybe the joke is on us ?
