Reviews [click links to read more]:

Out of the Shadows has a premise that’s been through the horror mill before, but director Dee McLachlan holds the thrilling line, maintaining a collectively strong start to finish to only stray from one or two key subplots that would wholeheartedly tie the entire film together.” Steven T. Lewis, Its Bloggin’ Evil

” …the look of the film is quite good for a low-budget production, and the special effects and make-up work that aren’t too shabby at all, but despite the strong start and decent build up eventually it all descend into the usual haunting cliches with very few surprises in between, we get an exorcism, a demonic presence that’s sort of cool, but there’s an awful lot of ‘been there and done that’ familiarity about this one.” Ken Kastenhuber, McBastard’s Mausoleum

In the US, Red Hound Films, the newly announced digital label from Blue Fox Entertainment, has released Out of the Shadows on VOD.

On 12 June 2017, the film was released on DVD in the UK by Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment.

  1. The very fact that this was shot in Byron Bay, NSW makes It a must-see. In Australia, we have many “primitive” zones where uncanny things REALLY take place (see Hanging Rock!😋😎), north of Melbourne (Victoria).
    I was born and reared in my beloved Australia, and at times, people who go there for the first time say they feel a strange kind of magic touching them the moment they step on Aussie soil.
