Monster Fest Travelling Sideshow / 02 November 2020


Monster Fest in partnership with Event Cinemas is pleased to announce that MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW: APOCALYPSE EDITION will arrive in the Northern Territory at Birch Carroll & Coyle Casuarina from Friday 13th – Sunday 15th November!

The line-up for this edition of the MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW will consist of the very best of our 2020 MONSTER FEST: WELCOME TO THE APOCALYPSE programming that is currently running in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide & Perth.

Abstract, immersive and unflinchingly brutal, POSSESSOR is the sophomore feature of Brandon Cronenberg (ANTIVIRAL) and is a truly remarkable work of cinema that reaffirms Brandon’s status as a visionary filmmaker. Christopher Abbott (IT COMES AT NIGHT) and Andrea Riseborough (MANDY) give exceptional performances in this sophisticated story of a corporate assassin who may have inhabited the wrong body in which to enact her next mission.
2020MF-POSSESSORFilmmaker Luke Sparke‘s OCCUPATION RAINFALL is the highly anticipated follow-up to the 2018 sci-fi blockbuster OCCUPATION, that sees Ken Jeong (THE HANGOVER Trilogy) and Daniel Gillies (THE ORIGINALS) join a returning cast that includes Temuera Morrison (AQUAMAN), Dan Ewing (BEAST NO MORE) and Trystan Go (THE FAMILY LAW). Picking up two years after the events of  the first film, the war for earth rages on, however the alien invaders are no longer the only threat for mankind’s survival as factions form between survivors. Please Note: this is a FIRST-LOOK screening with the film at 99% completion with minor vfx to be fine tuned ahead of the film’s theatrical release in early 2021.
OCCUPATIONRAINFALL-MFTSFresh from its World Premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival where it was met with universal critical acclaim is THE DARK AND THE WICKED. This gravely unsettling and genuinely terrifying feature is the latest work of writer/director Bryan Bertino (THE STRANGERS) and follows two siblings who are at odds with an entity that is determined to end their bloodline.
MF2020-DARKANDWICKEDSteven Kostanski, formerly of Canadian film collective Astron-6, follows up his acclaimed 2016 Lovecraftian love letter THE VOID with the light-hearted and ultra-violent slice of cosmic comedy/adventure, PSYCHO GOREMAN. This small-town tale of intergalactic proportions follows two kids who are in possession of a highly coveted magical amulet that allows them the ability to control an ancient alien overlord.
2020MF-PSYCHOGOREMANTHE ENDLESS filmmakers Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead return with their festival darling SYNCHRONIC, that pits two paramedics (Jamie Dornan, THE FALL and Anthony Mackie, AVENGERS: ENDGAME) at odds with a psychedelic designer drug that allows its users to time travel, mystery flight style, to an unknown destination and time.
MF2020-SYNCHRONICSNL comedian David Koechner (CHEAP THRILLS) stars in Cody Callahan‘s eighties throwback comedy-slasher VICIOUS FUN, which follows Joel (Evan Marsh), an unlucky-in-love film critic who gets caught in a serial killers anonymous-type self help group with his unrequited love’s new boyfriend.
