Following the last night of NIGHTSTREAM 2021, which ran from October 7-13th virtually all across the U.S., the festival is proud to announce the Audience Award winners for the second edition...
Playing as part of Nightstream's retro section this year specialising in folk horror, Alison's Birthday a rare Australian folk horror film that is seeing the light of day again through Severin Films, is an interesting yet wildly uneven film. The ideas and plot points pre date an entire slew of similar modern films and it's further proof that there rarely is anything brand new in cinema.
Slow and languid, the film won't appeal to everyone but for those that connect with it, they will be swept up in the atmosphere and mood of the film.
Nightstream is back for it's second edition! We've taken a look at the line up and have picked out our five must sees of the festival. Nightstream runs from October 7-13.
