AVClub: The appeal of punk music isn’t in its technical musicianship; many punk songs consist of the same two or three chords repeated over and over. Nor, on that note, is it originality that draws people in. What fans like about punk rock is that it’s fast, it’s loud, and being in a room full of people shoving each other to fast, loud music provides an intense, visceral thrill. The shagginess of the instrumentation is part of the ethos, asserting that anyone can pick up a guitar and start their own band. Indie horror cinema shares a similar DIY ethic, and from its opening title card proclaiming “This film should be played loud,” the telekinetic body-horror film The Mind’s Eye is punk as fuck.
