Metalosis Maligna – a scary short fictional documentary

 

A creepy fictional story by Floris Kaayk, about a fictional disease in near future by which a species of metal-consuming bacteria turn steel implants inside patients’ bodies into uncontrolled swaths of root-shaped steel bars, slowly, and very painfully, consuming the flesh, bones, and organs in between. Not that type of Lambshead-esque tragicomedy, though, as the 7-minute short was made in documentary format, including make-believe interviews with fellow make-believe medical experts, patients, and every gory medical thing you could imagine of. And also some food for thought towards the future.
