Title: Bedding the Lamia: Tropical Horrors

David Kuraria is your guide as you push through drenched tropical foliage in the torrential downpour. 

In these tales we see a Melanesian farmer seeking land rights from a dominant tribe. Bearing gifts of persuasion, the farmer find that the tribe’s gods might first need appeasing.

An artist experimenting with narcotics and obscure occult methods inadvertently solicits an unwelcome muse.

A group of holidaymakers travel up a Northern Australian River on a converted war barge. Here brutal colonial past reaches out to ensnare them on a journey into horror.

A survivor of the Christchurch earthquakes takes his deceased grandfather’s diaries to recreate the old man’s equatorial travels. On a tiny Micronesian island he steps into an ‘otherworld’, where any action has blackly comical and unpleasant consequences.

Kuraria guides you through hidden valleys and treacherous swamps. Be careful not to step from the path.
