John Connor [Celluloid 10.01.15] Australia horror

Sydney filmmaker Joseph Sims-Dennett's first film Observance has been making serious waves since premiering at Fantasia this year. The extremely low-budget film shot in 11 days is already attracting big name distribution opportunities in the US and its filmmaker drawing the interest of the likes of Brandon Cronenberg.

The first trailer for the film is here and it looks as gorgeously shot as it does spookifying.

In the grip of grief following the death of his young son, his marriage on the rocks and nearing bankruptcy, Parker reluctantly returns to work as a private investigator. Embarking on an unusual assignment to observe a woman from an abandoned apartment, Parker witnesses bizarre happenings surrounding her, unaware that the derelict building that he surveys her from has birthed a dark presence which slowly threatens to consume him.

Sims-Dennett co-wrote the film with Josh Zammit and it is currently playing the festival circuit.

Recommended Release: Blow Up (Criterion Blu-ray)
