The hills are alive with weird, wonderful and completely whacked-out treats in Freak Me Out, your Sydney Film Festival sidebar with a taste for the bizarre.
"It is with the greatest of twisted pleasure we invite you to experience cinema that’ll make your spine tingle and your pulse quicken. Are you brave enough to withstand the full-tilt assaults of evil board game thriller GAME OF DEATH Game of Death, killer virus bloodbath MAYHEM (with rising Aussie star Samara Weaving), and Christmas-themed Aussie-USA co-pro spooker BETTER WATCH OUT (Oh yeah! More Aussie stars here: Levi Miller, Ben Oxenbould and Olivia DeJonge). Can your senses take the dreams-within-nightmares-within-altered realities of gothic psycho-melodrama FASHONISTA and Portuguese monochrome mind-bender THE FOREST OF LOST SOULS? But hey, we’re ‘family-friendly,’ as well. Please dress up as your favourite horror character and come feel the love at SPOOKERS, the first documentary ever selected for FMO. Bang a gong, let’s get this freaky thing on." Richard Kuipers, Guest Programmer
Share the creepy love at SPOOKERS and come dressed up as your favourite horror character: can your zombie bride, killer clown, painted corpse or possessed child out-scare the professionals on screen? Best costume wins a door prize!
Be sure to check out THE UNTAMED also screening at Sydney Film Festival - A creature of another world unleashes people's base sexual impulses in this imaginative meld of social realism and erotic sci-fi which won the Venice Silver Lion for Best Director.
