The Osiris Child

Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 10.33.44 am
A new Australian sci-fi thriller shows what can be done on a limited budget. The film was shot in a variety of locations from Coober Pedy to Penrith in Sydney. So far, the only screening seems to have been on the Gold Coast, but we’re hoping it turns up in a local cinema soon. Written and directed by Shane Abbess. Stars Daniel MacPherson (Kane), Teagan Croft (Indi), and Kellan Lutz (Sy), also with Rachael Griffiths as a general, and Temuera Morrison as the prison governor. Our hero, Kane, is on a space station. There’s a prison riot on the Earth below, and he fears for the safety of his daughter, Indi. He teams up with Sy, an escaped prisoner, to try and rescue his daughter Indi.
The film looks fantastic. David Stratton (who doesn’t like SF) gave it 2.5 stars.
