Originality in the universe

This was quite an interesting, quirky and original little film. Great concept with decent special effects, cgi and acting.

The main character, while you can tell he is a good actor, at times felt a little bit... too over the top. This could have been the directing or lack there of, who knows. It also got a bit repetitive in the middle which slowed it down a bit. I found the twist interesting and unexpected and it drew very interesting parallels within the concept that I appreciated.

Regardless, it was entertaining and a breath of fresh air as far as the originality of the concept goes. Would recommend.

Glory-Hole Eldergod?

I didn't think the set up would be as interesting as it was. It was a very unusual film. Like it's not a traditional horror, and doesn't really have anything scary going on, but I wouldn't know what else to call it either. So I can see why this film might not work for everyone.

So there's a voice coming from a glory-hole in a public toilet, who tells the main character he is needed to save the world. For the most part it's dialogue through the main character, and a voice from a being who claims to be a god. With some memory flashbacks.

There is some dark humour going on, but it's not really a horror comedy either.

But with the way it ends, you're not really sure if what happened was real, or if the lead is just having a manic episode.

Bathroom glory hole

Directed by Rebekah McKendry (All the Creatures Were Stirring) and written by David Ian McKendry, Joshua Hull, and Todd Rigney, this film finds a depressed Wes (Ryan Kwanten) dealing with his breakup by hitting the road. At a rest stop, he gets drunk and burns everything he owns. Heading into the restroom to puke, he finds himself locked inside a stall while the next one over, inside a glory hole, is a voice belonging to J. K. Simmons.

That voice is a cosmic god by the name of Ghat and if Wes wants to save all of reality, he must submit his body to him. But is that really a Lovecraftian monster inside the other toilet? Is Wes really the good person he claims to be? And will two abused children - a hungover human and an Elder God - be able to bond? Are we all doomed?

Glorious has a great concept and would probably be even better as a short than a high concept full-length. That said, I was in no way bored by this movie and you should probably check it out - it's exclusively on Shudder - and make up your own mind. You'll never pee in a rest stop the same way again.
