Majhid Heath talks Australian Indigenous Horror Anthology ‘Dark Place’

“Dark Place is five wickedly twisted tales from the next generation of Aboriginal Writer/Directors all looking at the post-colonial Aboriginal experience through the horror genre”

“The comedy and the horror was actually quite difficult to blend. Obviously with comedy it’s very subjective and some people find certain things funny and other people find something really quite offensive. It was about finding that balance.”

“Each film has a different slant on what it means to be a blackfella in Australia… with ‘Killer Native’ there’s absolutely a sense that the burden of history is something that we should all be terrified by.”

“It’s exciting to put it in front of people’s eyes to see what the response is… I just hope that they enjoy the points of view that these filmmakers have because they are unique and they’re looking at the horror genre in a very different way”
