Oxford ISFF 2019...

The Oxford International Short Film Festival will be holding a special double screening of "For Want Of A Nail" in its full length form on Saturday 23rd March - and in addition to that, we've racked up another nomination for Best Editing.

The inaugural Oxford International Short Film Festival (OXISFF) celebrates the diversity and creativity of short films. OXISFF is located in the heart of the historic university city, on the same road where Inspector Morse, CS Lewis, and JRR Tolkien famously all enjoyed a tipple, a mere stone's throw from Hogwarts' Dining Hall.
The festival will be held in the beautiful grounds of St John's College at The University of Oxford in the newly refurbished auditorium.

On Saturday the 23rd of March FWOAN will be showing in Venue 3: Prestwich Room between 3pm and 4pm in the "Quirky" slot, and then again a little later in Venue 2: The Larkin Room between 5pm and 6pm also in the "Quirky" slot.

Find out more about the OISFF by going HERE, and be sure to follow FWOAN on Facebook.

Body Melt (Philip Brophy, 1993) Review

Find more exploitation reviews here.

The first phase is hallucinogenic, the second phase is glandular, and the third phase is … OH GOD!!! From Street Trash to The Incredible Melting Man as well as The Stuff, the last portion of the 20th Century seemed to have a thing for the ooze-tastic destruction of the human body, almost building upon the 'body horror' of David Cronenberg, albeit in a sleazier and sillier manner. A lesser-known entry in this sub-category of splatter-fuelled flicks is Body Melt, an Australian B-Movie that takes a few cues from Peter Jackson's early films and sprinkles a dusting of 90s rave culture style into the mix – oh, and Harold Bishop from Neighbours is in it, too!

FWOAN 2019...

As we head into 2019, and what will hopefully be another successful year on the festival circuit, Oakhill Productions are taking another look at the process of making "For Want Of A Nail" while also looking ahead to our aspirations for FWOAN and the future.
It's really been a great few months since finishing 'For Want Of A Nail' back in March last year. The film is into a second year of it's festival run and has received such positive feedback from a wide variety of viewers.
        As we push forward with another year of festivals and screenings around the world, Writer Nick, who was naturally our script supervisor on set, reflects on his experience in making FWOAN, his best bits and his thoughts on the TV series development.
