Horror Buzz: Overlook Film Festival 2024 - All You Need Is Death

"Overlook Film Festival 2024 – With recent films like Hole in the Ground, Boys from County Hell, Mandrake, and The Cellar, it’s fair to say there’s a new wave of Irish horror happening. All You Need Is Death, written and directed by Paul Duane, is the latest bit of terror to emerge from the Emerald Isle. This one is a blend of cosmic frights and folk horror that drips with dread.

The film stars Simone Collins as Anna and Charlie Maher as Aleks. Their characters are a couple who collect rare Irish folk ballots and then sell them for profit. This makes for an especially fascinating first 20 minutes, as they visit one person after the other and learn various new ballots, many of which contain Irish history and/or folklore. Alkes and Anna’s little side hustle puts them in touch with the rather serious Agnes (Catherine Siggins). She tasks the couple with tracking down a reclusive woman named Rita Concannon (Olwen Fouéré), who possesses knowledge of a mysterious and ancient song, older than anything the couple has encountered thus far."
