This new trailer has hit the web for Toa Fraser’s New Zealand-set action-thriller ‘The Dead Lands.’ Filmed in Auckland and the central North Island, Fraser’s mystical, violent action thriller is one of a handful of films to be made entirely in the Maori language.

Despite being one against many, Hongi vows to avenge his father and sets off in hot pursuit – but his only hope of catching them involves passing through forbidden Dead Lands, an area ruled by a mysterious and possibly supernatural cannibal warrior. The likes of Lawrence Makoare, Xavier Horan, Rukura Turei, George Henare, Rena Owen, Pana Hema Taylor co-star. ‘The Dead Lands’ opens in New Zealand on October 30th, and it will be showing at the London Film Festival on October 9th and October 11th.
