Horror

Horror

New Zealand filmmakers have won a global reputation thanks to their knack for horror. Along the way they have won fulsome acclaim (Braindead, Housebound, The Ugly ) and occasional arguments as to what actually counts as a horror tale (Braindead, Under the Mountain, Trail Run). Early entries — starting with the mutant shenanigans of Death Warmed Up in 1984 — were often of the splatter variety, laden with gorey bits. This collection of Kiwi horror also finds room for visions inspired by Frankenstein, writer Margaret Mahy...and milk.
