Did You Know?


'Post Mortem' has got the Méliès d'argent Award Special Mention at Trieste Science+Fiction Festival 2020: "A bleak, brilliantly staged horror movie with a beautiful historical setting. After the first World War and during the Spanish Flu pandemic, terror ensues among the farmers of a country village. The stark realism of their features, the gruesome, icy presence of the dead among the living sends chills down our spines, the corpses being the real protagonists. The jury's special mention goes to a film that perfectly embodies the concept of genre, 'Post Mortem' by Péter Bergendy." (Trieste Science+Fiction Festival 2020) See more »

Atmospheric ghost story
5 November 2020 | by paolozavattaSee all my reviews

Saw this film at the Science plus Fiction festival of Trieste. I really loved it. The story and pacing are good. The historical setting is very well done and immerse the viewer in the era and location, the supernatural element has a nice crescendo, it reminded me of a good ghost story around a fire that people would narrate to others during a long winter night. The atmosphere is palpable. The two main actors (the young girl and the photograper) were phenomenal. I would suggest to do not miss this one if you like good ghost stories.
