The Astor Theatre are hosting the second reunion screening of Philip Brophy’s 1993 Aussie horror BODY MELT in the last couple of years, only this time with an all-new 4K restoration!
A peaceful morning in suburban Pebbles Court is interrupted by a deafening car crash. What the residents fail to notice are the strange tentacles that erupt from the dead driver’s neck and force their way down his throat. Senior detective Sam Phillips (Gerard Kennedy) and his rookie partner Johnno (Andrew Daddo) soon discover that this freak automobile accident is the result of a diabolical plan to experiment on the residents of Pebbles Court with a radical new designer drug. Boasting a cast of Aussie TV favourites, including Ian Smith, William McInnes and Lisa McCune – and graphic gore effects created by make-up master Bob McCarron (The Matrix, Braindead) – Body Melt is a satirical, offbeat splatter film that is proudly “packed with more mucous, phlegm, puke, snot, slime and spit than you’d ever think possible”.
