Third Wave Announcement for MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW Brisbane!
In just over three weeks time, MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW hits Event Cinemas Myer Centre for three days of pure genre movie mayhem with a host of international, Australian and Queensland premieres!
We are pleased to announce the Australian Premiere of Vaughn Stone’s TERMINAL, a stunning sci-fi noir starring Academy Award-nominee Margot Robbie (I, TONYA), Simon Pegg (STAR TREK) and Mike Myers (AUSTIN POWERS). Also making its Australian festival debut is Jenn Wexler’s THE RANGER, a wild, gory and punk rock throwback to the golden-age of slashers. Our last film for this announcement is the Queensland Premiere of writer/director Luke Shanahan’s debut feature, RABBIT, a gripping psychological thriller that Birth.Movies.Death declares “has the makings of a contemporary fairytale“.

Vaughn Stein | United States 2018 | 90 Minutes | Disney | Australian Premiere
A twisted tale of two assassins carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life. Murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as their lives all intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind hell-bent on revenge.

After a run-in with the cops at a punk show goes sideways, Chelsea (Chloe Levine – THE TRANSFIGURATION) and her pals flee the city in search of a place to lay low. Running to the security of Chelsea’s old, abandoned family cabin in the woods, they fall under the watchful eye of an overzealous park ranger (Jeremy Holm – ‘House of Cards’) who holds a secret from Chelsea’s past.Set to the beat of a killer punk soundtrack (FANG, The Avengers, The Grim, Rotten UK and more) and presented in eye-popping neon colours, Jenn Wexler’s debut offers a modern take on survivalist horror that both celebrates and subverts the usual tropes—with equal parts humour, glitter and gore.
RABBIT | FRIDAY MAY 25TH 9:30PM
Luke Shanahan | Australia 2017 | 99 Minutes | Vendetta Films | Queensland Premiere
Almost a year after her identical twin’s disappearance, 25 year old medical student Maude Ashton is still haunted by visions of her violent abduction. Convinced she is still alive, Maude follows the clues to a derelict caravan park where she discovers her fate is intrinsically linked to that of her sister, while the entire experiment is controlled by a ‘secret society’ that likes to watch. If Maude wants to see her sister again she’ll have to go through with a series of strange experiments.
