Hot on the heels of last Friday’s announcement of the World Premiere of filmmaker Sam Odlum‘s Australian Sci-Fi/Comedy TIME ADDICTS to come at MONSTER FEST 2023 in Melbourne this October, Umbrella Entertainment have just dropped the Trailer for the film.
The debut feature film by New Zealand writer/director Sam Odlum, starring Freya Tingley (HEMLOCK GROVE) and Charles Grounds (BABYTEETH), TIME ADDICTS delves into the human condition, where addiction, friendship and the search for redemption all come to play. In desperate debt to their volatile drug dealer, best friends, Denise (Tingley) and Johnny (Grounds), agree to a sketchy job to pay off their last hit – breaking into a decrepit stash house to steal a bag of mysterious drugs. But whilst getting into the house may be easy, escape proves more troublesome, as the pair find themselves trapped inside with a deranged fiend. With no way out and not one to miss an opportunity, Johnny smokes the new drug and promptly travels into the past, triggering alarming new events in the future. Separated through time, Denise is left alone to confront her past, their dealer Kane’s real identity, and her very own existence.
Odlum says, “Inspired by Phillip K. Dick’s science fiction classics and modern Korean cinema, TIME ADDICTS blends a combination of genres to become its own entity. The film’s tone was extremely important to me, with every creative department working together to steer into the unpredictable nature of the narrative and create drug-fuelled situations that are at times high stakes, ridiculous and emotional. We can’t wait to share the film with audiences.” Filmed in Melbourne with the assistance of VicScreen, TIME ADDICTS is an Exile Entertainment and Lex Neville production.
