Now admittedly, if a movie has a title like "The Creeping Garden", you'd expect some sci-fi/horror blend, something along the lines of Day of the Triffids - and you'll probably be disappointed at first that it's just a documentary about a certain kind of fungus ... but on closer look, the thing's actually quite a bit closer to the realm of sci-fi/horror than first suspected, as it's about a certain kind of plasmodial slime mould that's actually able to not only grow like a plant but also (even if at a very slow pace) move like an animal, and that's able to react to certain stimuli (again, only very slowly). Now in the grander scheme of nature, this slime mould might be rather insignificant, but there are persons from all fields of arts and science that are strongly fascinated by this, from mycologists to fringe scientists, from hobby botanists to musicians, from visual artists to experts in robotics, from dreamers to conspiracy theorists ...

 

Now granted, to anyone seriously researching the nature of plasmodial slime moulds, this documentary will (most probably, I'm no biologist) offer nothing new, at best a nice distraction - but that's not what the film has set out to achieve in the first place, instead it is about the fascination with the subject matter rather than the actual thing, it allows its interviewees to go off into science fiction-based direction, celebrates some of the wilder ideas - and ultimately the film will make one smile and want to learn more about slime moulds at the same time. And frankly, even if The Creeping Garden might not be a sci-fi/horror hybrid per se, the information given might inspire quite a few nightmares at least ...
