Welcome To Hoxford: The Fan Film

What is it?

The video below is a short fan-made film and Vimeo Staff Pick from 2011 that I watched early last year in 2016 called, Welcome To Hoxford: The Fan Film, which was directed by Julien Mokrani, and it was based on a comic book series called Welcome To Hoxford:

Short Film (Vimeo)


What is it about?

The main character of Welcome To Hoxford: The Fan Film is a character named Raymond Delgado (played by the actor Jason Flemyng) who is a dangerous and delusional prisoner and convicted murder / killer and former soldier with mental disorders who is so dangerous and unstable and out of control that he is sent along with several other prisoners to a privately run correctional facility and mental institution called Hoxford which is run by the Usmanov Corporation.

Hoxford is run by the character Warden Gordon Baker (played by the actor Arben Bajraktaraj), who is a strange man, and a terrible surprise awaits the new prisoners.

This is how The IMDb describes this short film:

Raymond Delgado is no ordinary prisoner…

On a good day, he’ll take the time to tell you he’s the son of Zeus before he tears out your jugular.

On a bad day, you won’t even have a moment to call out for help.

After a yet another “incident” Raymond has been transferred to Hoxford, a correctional facility and mental institution known for its radical methods.

At Hoxford, Raymond’s not the only predator…

Come nightfall, under a full moon, bloodcurdling screams pierce through the darkness of the prison courtyard.

It’s hunting hour!

As the other Hoxford prisoners huddle in the obscurity of their prison cells, trembling in fright, Ray cracks a smile.

He thrives on confrontation.

Lock a human beast in a cage with a legendary monster and, in your opinion…

Who will devour?

And who will be devoured?

My Thoughts

I think that this was a pretty good short film with good visuals, good sound effects, good music, good mood setting, good environment building, and I liked the use of internal dialogue for the unstable main character Raymond Delgado who would often hallucinate and communicate with his hallucinations.

I wish that this short film would have been a bit longer though, this short film is a bit graphic at times, and it is definitely not a family film, but other than that I would recommend that people watch it if those things do not bother you.


The end,
