Horrors and macabre thrillers with fantasy elements aren't completely unknown in Yugoslav cinema. The most consistent author in this vein was Croat Oktavijan Miletic (1902 - 1987) whose experi...展开mental movies referred to contemporary horror classics at the dawning of the 20th Century. Sadly, Miletic never managed to create a large heritage because he collaborated with Croat fascist regime and never got to leave the mark in Yugoslav movie heritage because he was punished for WW - 2 sins. He ended up as strictly tecnical advisor on same Yugoslav post WW - 2 productions. Croat macabre tradition was continued by directors Zoran Tadic and Zivorad Tomic in collaboration with novelist and screenwriter Pavao Pavlicic. They mostly made crime fiction but sometimes they prowled through esotheric subjects which is proven by their unforgetable masterpiece RITAM ZLOCINA.
