Tickets, Session Times & New Film Announcement for MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW Perth!
With five weeks to go before we kick off MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW in Perth at Event Cinemas Innaloo, we’re psyched to announce that the Aussie mockumentary and recent Fantastic Fest official selection TOP KNOT DETECTIVE will join the program for a hometown show with cast & crew present for a post-screening Q&A.
TOP KNOT DETECTIVE | SUNDAY 17TH OF SEPTEMBER 2PM
Aaron McCann & Dominic Pearce | Australia 2016 | 87 Minutes | w/ Q&A by Cast & Crew
In the early 1990’s, a little known Japanese Samurai/Detective Series was syndicated to public access TV in Australia and became a cult success. In Japan, it was titled “Ronin Suiri Tentai” (roughly translating to “Deductive Reasoning Ronin”), but soon came to be known in the West as TOP KNOT DETECTIVE. The original Japanese series was legendary in in its home country as being a cultural train-wreck, led by its insane writer/director/producer/lead actor Takashi Takamoto. He couldn’t act. He couldn’t fight. He had no idea how to write a TV show. TOP KNOT DETECTIVE tells the story of Detective Sheimasu, an Edo era police officer turned ronin on a never-ending road to vengeance after being framed for the murder of his Master. Along the way he would fight ninjas, samurai, yakuza, aliens, monsters, more ninjas, demons, robots, time traveling baseball players and the occasional go-go dancer.
We are also pleased to release session times and ticketing links to our first wave of programming and they are as follows:

At first, she’s easily able to out pace her un-dead pursuer, but things quickly become a nightmare when she realizes the zombie doesn’t need to ever stop and rest.
