MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW Perth Second Wave Programming Announcement!
Unfortunately we’ve had to hold off announcing our MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW Perth Closing Night Film for the moment but rather than leave you high and dry on the cusp of the weekend, we’ve made the call to reveal three of the four final films!
Opening our festival is the Perth premiere of Tyler MacIntyre’s brutally hilarious slasher TRAGEDY GIRLS, followed by the Australian Premiere of surreal sci-retro-tech horror SEQUENCE BREAK and from Spain comes the Australian Premiere of the claustrophobic suspense-driven thriller THE GLASS COFFIN.
TRAGEDY GIRLS | FRIDAY 15TH OF SEPTEMBER 7PM
Tyler MacIntyre | United States 2017 | 90 Minutes | Opening Night Film | Perth Premiere
Sadie and McKayla are two social-media obsessed best friends who will stop at nothing to build their online following. The self-titled “Tragedy Girls” kidnap Lowell, an unambitious local serial killer, and force him to mentor them into becoming modern horror legends by committing murders and using their online show to cover the ‘tragedies’ and blow up the internet. As the bodies fall, the girls become national news and panic in their small town hits a fever pitch, the girls must rethink their plan before they find themselves the latest victims of their own killing spree.
SEQUENCE BREAK | FRIDAY 15TH OF SEPTEMBER 9:15PM
Graham Skipper | United States 2017 | 81 Minutes | Australian Premiere
Oz is an antisocial loner whose only solace is his love for ’80s arcade games, that is until he meets Tess, who shares his passion. The two quickly become romantically entwined, but their budding romance is slowly threatened by a mysterious game that seems to be drawing them deeper and deeper into its void. Strange occurrences linked to the game slowly begin to take over their minds and bodies until Oz is drawn into a life and death battle with his electronic foe. Sequence Break masterfully melds retro ’80s nostalgia with the body-horror of Cronenberg’s finest works.
THE GLASS COFFIN | SATURDAY 16TH OF SEPTEMBER 7PM
Haritz Zubillaga | Spain 2017 | 75 Minutes | Australian Premiere
Dressed for the occasion in an elegant evening dress, Amanda enters the luxurious limousine waiting in front of her house to take her to a gala evening where she will receive an award for her acting achievements. Suddenly the windows are tinted black, Amanda’s mobile phone is jammed and she cannot open any of the doors. A strange voice, distorted by a metallic filter, then demands that Amanda perform a series of lurid and invasive acts, each more shocking than the last. Trapped inside her glass coffin Amanda soon realises that if she wants to survive then she had better do whatever the sinister voice asks.
