Monster Fest

PIERCING Special Event Screening w/ Q&A by Mia Wasikowska!

12 December 2018

We are pleased to announce that Monster Fest Presents in association with Rialto Distribution will host a Special Event Screening of PIERCING with Q&A by actress Mia Wasikowska (CRIMSON PEAK, MAPS TO THE STARS) hosted by Simon Foster (Screen-Space, Monster Fest 2018 judge)  on Thursday January 10th at Dendy Cinemas Newtown.
PIERCING is the sophomore feature from Nicolas Pesce, the writer/director of 2016 festival favourite THE EYES OF MY MOTHER and is based on a novel by  Ryû Murakami, author of AUDITION, on which the Takashi Miike film was based.
Reed (Christopher Abbott) kisses his wife and baby goodbye, seemingly headed away on business. But instead of clothes, he’s packed a murder kit. He’s planned everything meticulously: he’ll check into a hotel, call an escort service, and kill an unsuspecting prostitute. Only then will he rid himself of his murderous urges. But Reed’s plan could not account for Jackie (Mia Wasikowska), the alluring and mysterious call girl who arrives at his room. When an unexpected incident occurs, Reed and Jackie find themselves in a pulsating game of cat-and-mouse. Has he been found out? Is this all just some strange game? Or are they falling in love? As the night progresses, Reed starts to lose control. Before the night is over, a feverish nightmare will unfold, and the pair will seal their bond in blood.
