Hemlock & Cedar Films: “DARK WHISPERS: VOLUME ONE”


When Clara discovers her deceased mother’s revered ‘Book of Dark Whispers’, she can ’t stop reading the strange stories within its mystical pages. Each weir d tale reveals a new facet of the twisted human psyche... or the not-so-human, as the case ma y be. From the horror of grief to sharehouse living disaster, from existential dread to right-swiping vampires, there’s something for all tastes; as long as those tastes are twisted! Starring Andrea Demetriades, Asher Keddie, Anthony Lapaglia and Bree Desborough, the Dark Whispers horror anthology is brought to you by eleven female directors from across Australia.

Hemlock & Cedar Films is a Sydney based production company that focuses on female-led, genre projects for international audiences.

Established by award winning writer, director and producer Megan Riakos, Hemlock & Cedar Films is behind Australia’s first women’s horror anthology Dark Whispers - Volume 1, comprised of 11 horror segments by 11 women from across the country. Described as “…A shining example of horror anthology film done right…” (Killer Horror Critic) and “…bursting with ideas and energetic visual approaches...” (ScreenHub) the film was selected by Cinefest Oz, Monsterfest, Seattle International and Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival amongst others.


Hemlock & Cedar Films has several projects in development including the psychological thriller People Might Hear You based on a book by award winning Australian author Robin Klein, mystery period film The Last Reprieve which was awarded the Grand Prize in the Greater Philadelphia Screenplay competition and survival thriller Hidden Valley. The company also offers development, screen workshops and consulting services.

Hemlock & Cedar Films takes its name from Hemlock, the state tree of Pennsylvania and the Lebanese Cedar, the national tree of Lebanon, reflecting the roots of Megan’s family heritage while also embodying the stories that resonate with the company – ones that explore at its root, what it means to be human.


Australia’s first women’s horror anthology feature film Dark Whispers – Volume 1.  The film launches in Australia and the UK on Monday 25 January on all major digital platforms with pre-orders on iTunes now available. [TRAILER: CLICK HERE]
