Welcome to Hoxford, the fan film

When I think of fan videos, the first thing I usually imagine homemade lightsaber special fx and people doing bad kung-fu, however, it would seem my opinion of the homemade homage is a little dated. Julien Mokrani’s Welcome to Hoxford, the fan film is a highly polished tribute to Ben Templesmith’s comic-book series of the same name, which will no doubt appeal to fans of the Sin City & 300 films.

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?
