AfterDeath, Robin Schmidt’s debut feature film

This sci-fi horror thriller was co-directed by Robin Schmidt and Gez Medinger, who have previously collaborated on numerous projects.

The film follows five young people who wake up dead. Washed up by the tide they scramble to an abandoned beach house. They soon realise that the perpetual night and blasts of pain suggest this is some version of hell. Between in-fighting and attacks by a demonic shadow creature, they recall the collapse of the nightclub that brought them here – and begin seeing hope of a second chance in the cabin’s two mysterious paintings…

Filmaker Magazine have released a series of behind the scene articles in the lead up to the movie’s premiere, giving an in depth view of its production process.
