“Only with a virgin birth and the babe slain will the Hunter come. Only when the Eater of Men delivers his blood will man be born Orion.” From a dark prophecy of murder and salvation, an ambitious and impressive piece of cinema emerges. In this post-apocalyptic fantasy, civilisation has collapsed and the last few remaining humans live as scavengers wandering the ‘Rust’. As the world reverts to savagery and barbarianism, only one man can revive society. With intense performances from Lily Cole, David Arquette and the chilling Goran Kostic, Orion is a visually stimulating film not for the faint-hearted. Director Asiel Norton creates a fully immersive post-apocalyptic world in this strikingly stylised fantasy feature. Orion’s dank and desolate landscape of multi-storeys grown over with weeds and crumbling concrete structures are terrifying symbols of the destruction of the society we are all familiar with. The eerie and imposing soundscape heightens the oppressive nature of this film, while the use of ritualistic imagery and mythical story-telling cements the unsettling and disturbing nature of this world into which we are thrust.
