From eerie to grisly and plain disturbing

Australian filmmakers have produced their fair share of movies featuring zombies, vampires and ghosts – as well as marsupial werewolves, mutant pigs and murderous crocodiles.

But some of our most iconic horror films don’t feature any supernatural creatures at all. Rather, the horror stems from the perceived threat of the Australian landscape or being at the mercy of the people that inhabit it.

Also, in true Aussie fashion, local filmmakers often don't take themselves too seriously. Our particular blend of homegrown humour can creep into some of the most disturbing scenes.

This curated collection contains clips from horror, suspense and thriller films from the rebirth of Australian film in the 1970s to the cult and horror festival hits of the 21st century.
