Issue 5 of the online, open-access, peer-reviewed Cine-Excess journal

Due for publication, December 2022

We have sourced and edited twelve submissions for this special issue, including essays, interviews, and roundtables, from filmmakers, critics and scholars. Topics covered include the woman-directed Indonesian horror film Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts (2017); an interview with Professor Rosalind Galt on her latest book Alluring Monsters, all about the South-East-Asian figure of the restless female pontianak; and a roundtable on the complicated gender politics of Possession (1981).
