TERMINUS

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews - Steve O’Brien

re­leased OUT NOW! 2015 | 15 | dvd

There’s not a lot that’s orig­i­nal about Marc Fur­mie’s Aus­tralian-made but Amer­i­can set in­die about a me­te­orite with mys­te­ri­ous heal­ing prop­er­ties, but there’s enough prom­ise here to mark the writer/di­rec­tor out as one to keep an eye on.

Fur­mie crafts an ab­sorbingly doom-laden at­mos­phere, and the script is ad­mirably high-minded, but Terminus un­for­tu­nately feels over­whelmed by its am­bi­tions. Still, if you ig­nore the cribs and cliché, it’s worth a punt.

Ex­tras None.

Frank’s home brew­ing was go­ing well.
