Backroads (1976) Classic Review by Hamish Downie https://www.ozflix.tv/#!/browse/film/2790/backroads Recently, Ozflix, Australia’s answer to Netflix opened for business. It promised every Australian film ever a kind of commercial library or preservation society. And perhaps someday, if they are successful enough, they may be able to deliver on the promise.

Short films are fine, but they haven't really made money since the end of the era where audiences would sit in the cinema all day and watch a Newsreel, a Cartoon, a Short Film and then a Double Feature. All for less than a dollar. But that era has long gone. The B-Movie has now... Continue Reading →
Hello everyone, sorry I've been missing in action, but I've got this new short film out, and it's premiering at the Shorts Off Film Festival in Wales, and it's called "Silence".

Thank you as always to the ‘Big Gay Horror Fan’ for sharing my latest short film/music video for Robyn Loau – “The Last Time” 🙂
As the GLBT community finally gains its rights and full respects in the eyes of the law, it seems like the worst time to genuflect before its faults. But, humanity is a complex and varied beast and, for years now, queer publications have covered the very harrowing (and unfortunately) truthful stories of domestic violence that occur in same sex relationships.

Imbued with a restrained toxicity, this tale of a lesbian couple caught in a loop of violence, is, ultimately, haunting on many levels.
Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
