There are a number of gags that challenge the stereotypes around young black women, and Little is largely a film of female empowerment, supported by an all-black female lead cast. The fact that, at 13, Martin herself is the driving force behind the film is pretty exceptional to say the least.
Pet Sematary is one of the greatest cult hits born from Stephen King’s collection of horror novels. The original film was created in 1989 and with this new release, the question on everybody’s lips has been, “Will the remake hold up to the original?”.
Us is every bit as chilling and unsettling as the trailer alludes. Peele, along with an astounding cast and production team deliver the kind of film that paves the way for a new era of horror, one that may just try to live among us, or at least force us to better understand ourselves. Be prepared for a slight existential crisis, a complete disenchantment with 11:11 and be kinder to your reflection, you know, just in case it turns out to be alive.

If you’re wanting a ‘hands to the mouth, gasp every five minutes, almost wet yourself from shock’ film, Greta is just not it. It does however, along with a slight fear of ever doing a nice deed again, amuse it’s audience and thrill you just enough to keep you invested until the very claustrophobic end.
Amy McNickle and Steffie Yee have created something really immersive and moving with this film, with a dash of dry humour thrown in for measure.
Set to be one of the festival’s more fresh and unique acts, ELSKA will hit Adelaide and Port Adelaide with her unique sound, which blends soulful vocals with live looped harp.
