About the Director

Josh LongJoshua Long first became interested in film after watching Ray Harryhausen movies on repeat as a child. This developed into a love of exploitation cinema. He started making his own horror films, his first major short being the 30-minute backyard zombie epic AXED (2010). Joshua was extremely fortunate to have his script 'Post Mortem Mary' chosen to be funded by Screen Queensland and have it's world premiere at Screamfest. It is a dream come true as he is a massive horror nerd. 'Post Mortem Mary' is a love letter to the works of Lucio Fulci and Dario Argento.
