NEKROTRONIC Q&A Screenings & Home Entertainment Release Revealed!
Further to last week’s news that NEKROTRONIC will open Sydney’s SciFi Film Festival, we’re pleased to report that the film will play select cities across Australia this September before arriving on home entertainment shortly after.
Australian filmmakers Kiah & Tristan Roache-Turner (WYRMWOOD) take their international festival favourite short DAEMONRUNNER to feature with NEKROTRONIC, a genre hybrid that expertly blends sci-fi, horror and comedy into a wildly entertaining thrill-ride!
Picking up after a millennium of badass battles between demons and a secret order of demon hunters, known as Nekromancers, the forces of evil have found a way to possess souls through social-media apps. With every Wi-Fi-connected soul on the planet at risk, a dwindling band of Nekromancers find themselves forced to put their faith in a hapless sanitation worker, Howie (Ben O’Toole). Howie unwittingly carries an ancestral power that may afford them the means to definitively force evil offline.
“My brother and I have wanted to make a crazy-fun, Aussie comic book movie like this since we were about 12 years old and now, we’ve finally done it!” said co-writer/director Kiah Roache-Tuner. “I’m super-stoked that we’re going to premiere at the 2019 SciFi Film festival and that Australian audiences will get to see the movie the way it was supposed to be seen: big & loud on a giant fifty-foot screen!”
