Celia (1989) (PG)

An imaginative and somewhat disturbed young girl fantasises about evil creatures and other oddities to mask her insecurities while growing up in rural Australia.

Young Celia is growing up with a sense of isolation and mistrust of the world that surrounds her. Her mother and father won’t let her play with the kids next door because their parents are communists. Then her pet bunny is taken away because of rabbit overpopulation. When she experiences more trauma she retreats into a world of elaborate fantasies to cope…

Celia has wonderful moments of atmospheric eeriness and genuine frights courtesy of its grotesque imaginary Hobyahs and monster children.
