Horror Unleashed - David Blyth

From Standing Room Only, 1:46 pm on 23 August 2015

If you saw Tim Wong's alternative history of New Zealand film Out of the Mist at the Film Festival, you'll know Tim had a lot of respect for maverick film-maker David Blyth. Where most Kiwi pioneers were trying to make mainstream thrillers and road movies, or intense, personal art-films, David was - well, different. His first film, Angel Mine, was also the first one to be funded by the new Film Commission. But when it came out, the censors didn't know what had hit them. We talk to David Blyth, whose retrospective Horror Unleashed will be on Nga Taonga Sound & Vision.
