My name is Fergus Torpy. I study Bachelor of Arts -Public Relations & Media and Communication and Deakin University. This website is part of my unit Contemporary Australian Cinema AAM219.
My topic is based on the film Van Diemen’s Land and questioning whether it belongs as an Australian horror film. The film has the connotation for Australian Horror/Zombie and the question of how it impacts the viewing audience. This is a film that captivates the unnatural and our interest in the gruesome nature humans can partake in for survival.
‘Australian horror themes – does Van Diemen’s Land belong?’
