Though the apartments, streets, and humans all appear to exist in present-day London, these characters act like they’re from another time and place. They cook dinner naked, sling bodily waste like Nerf balls, and speak to each other in pained vowels; statements and questions that sound more like “ooh ooh ah ah uh uh?” than anything conceivably resembling a human tongue. Are they advanced iterations of apes? Are they civilized Homo sapiens? Best categorized as a soap opera composed of familial monkey business, Steve Oram’s horror-comedy-drama is like a nightmare after a terrible family trip to the zoo. Amazingly, these characters move throughout their lives with a primal complexity that apes their more simian actions. Even though their behaviors are consistently outlandish and even disgusting, they all-too-frequently mirror reality. Deliberately lacking subtitles or any interpretive narration, perhaps the scariest thing about AAAAAAAAH! is that it all makes perfect sense. –C.P.
