Genre Hybrid SCREAM FOR HELP To Screen In Melbourne

CINEMANIACS will host a screening of the Tom Holland (FRIGHT NIGHT, CHILD’S PLAY) penned and Michael Winner (DEATH WISH, THE SENTINEL) directed genre hybrid SCREAM FOR HELP (1984) on Saturday 27th May at ACMI in Melbourne with an introduction by revered film historian and author Lee Gambin.

A wonderful combination of slasher film, home invasion, psych-horror, soap opera and Nancy Drew-style mystery, director Michael Winner’s SCREAM FOR HELP explores the secret world of a teenage girl’s acute perception and understanding of something sinister going on. A smart and savvy violent film, owing as much to teen melodrama as it does to slice ‘n dice gorefests.
