Its not often you'll see Perth on the big screen. Rarer still will you see mystery and danger thrown in amongst violence and intrigue. Luckily for Foreshadow viewers, that's just what you'll get when you see this feature film in Hoyts cinemas November 8. Foreshadow tells the story of Jesse Milton, a young 30-something year old with everything at his fingertips - until an evil spirit threatens to disrupt all of that.
I really enjoyed the fact that my senses weren't overwhelmed with gore and tonnes of fake blood. Rather, the crew behind the film have cleverly woven a detective/noir style sub plot into the main narrative, making the film a little less "in your face" and more though provoking. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing so many of Perth's famous icons on screen including Trigg Beach, South Perth, and Mundaring Weir Hotel.
It really felt like a true Aussie film too with great larrikin jokester Ben Purser providing much needed light to the film's subject matter. All in all, I would recommend this to anyone who wants their teenager to see a "scary film" without worrying whether they'll be changing their bed sheets later that night; couples who want to get closer in a cinema screen without balking at the other's terrified screams; or for groups of friends looking for a film they can all find something to relate to.
