Sydney’s SciFi Film Festival are hosting the Australian premiere ofIsaac Ezban’s THE SIMILARS at The Ritz Cinema in Randwick.
With an ingenious sense of sweep and imagination proving that pastiche can be an art form in itself, director, Isaac Ezban’s heady blend of trippy sci-fi, ink-black noir, eerie horror, and dog-eared pulp fiction daringly posits style as substance. Wearing its influences all over both of its sleeves, The Similars begins on a stormy night in 1968, with a group of strangers stranded together in a bus station as a torrential downpour outside heralds the arrival of something strange, and very, very dangerous. Like an episode of The Twilight Zone with a madman at the helm, The Similars echoes so much while remaining truly original.
