Filmfest Hamburg shows cult gore filmmaker David Blyth’s unforgotten firstling: “Angel Mine”, an independent New Zealand cinema gem. It centres on a young couple pursued by two leather-clad aliens (played by the same actors as the romantic couple). Their aim: torture and murder. Fans attest the crude thriller a hypnotic visual language and raw erotic energy, while critics praise the intellectual editing and intelligent use of visual metaphors.
