Joshua Long first became interested in film after watching Ray Harryhausen movies on repeat as a child. This developed into a love of exploitation cinema. His first major short is the 30-minute backyard zombie epic AXED (2010). The script of ‘Post Mortem Mary’ was chosen to be funded by Screen Queensland and had its world premiere at Screamfest. ‘Post Mortem Mary’ is a love letter to the works of Lucio Fulci and Dario Argento.
