Dark Place is a 2019 Australian horror anthology feature film with five tales of varying subgenres, from horror comedy to gothic.
Written and directed by Kodie Bedford, Liam Phillips, Rob Braslin, Perun Bonser and Björn Stewart, Dark Place was produced by Majhid Heath and Hayley Johnson.
“Dark Place focuses on the “desire to unpack race relations and examine the impact endured by the Australian indigenous inhabitants through the eyes of the new generation of Australian filmmakers.”
Outback zombies in the rollicking splatter comedy Killer Native, an insomniac questions her sanity in Foe, supernatural forces visit a housing estate in the gritty Vale Light, gothic horror shrouds the woods in the atmospheric The Shore, and, female oppression and revenge take centre stage the punchy Scout.
“As a collective, the five shorts couldn’t be more different from each other, but they come together as a powerful message to Australia’s filmmakers. This is how you make something that is wholly Australian while still appealing to lovers of genre cinema. It’s also just a bloody good set of stories.” The Reel Bits
“Running at a lean 75 minutes and offering a bounty of gore, atmosphere and thought-provoking stories, Dark Place is the rare horror anthology that moves from strength to strength and never overstays its welcome.” Switch.
Dark Place premiered in June 2019 at the Sydney Film Festival.
