All Hallowed is inspired by contemporary Japanese horror films, Day of the Dead, and Konpaku – which is the riverbank where the dead and the living come and go. They cross to their ancestral homes and encounter shadowy darkness, spirituality, something formless, the unconscious, and the essence of that which is the destroyed and has disappeared.
