With a talk by Jonathan Rayner
Despite the wide range of lethal Australian fauna, in films it’s sharks or crocodiles. In Black Water, it's the crocs who terrorise Australians holidaying in the wilderness of the Northern Territory, in a story based on the events which also inspired Greg McLean's Rogue. Remember, what you can't see can hurt you...
Jonathan Rayner is Reader in Film Studies at the University of Sheffield, and researches and writes on Australian Cinema since the 1970s. This talk will explore the characteristic horror cinema called Oz Gothic.
