Arcadia Reveal Artwork & Trailer For THE SCARY OF SIXTY-FIRST!

Arcadia have just unveiled the Poster Art, Trailer & Release Date for their recent acquisition, Dasha Nekrasov‘s Berlinale award–winning THE SCARY OF SIXTY-FIRST.

Horrific real-world news story becomes giallo-inspired horror in this gleefully deranged interrogation of our conspiracy-fuelled, edgelord-filled times.

Twentysomething New Yorkers Addie (Betsey Brown) and Noelle (Madeline Quinn) can’t believe their luck when they find an apartment in their price range in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Of course, there’s a catch, and it’s not the food left to rot in the cupboard or the blood-stained mattresses. As they soon learn, the flat used to belong to the late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein – and absolutely nothing good can come from staying there, stewing in the paranoiac, malevolent doom he left behind.
The Scary of Sixty-First Web Poster - SmallShooting on grimy, gleaming 16mm and cheekily nodding to everything from EYES WIDE SHUT and Brian De Palma to 70s horror and pornography, Nekrasova dives in to all-out madness but with tongue kept firmly in cheek throughout. And yet, underneath it all, The Scary of Sixty-First is driven by a palpable outrage and an acutely self-aware sense of the zeitgeist.

THE SCARY OF SIXTY-FIRST will opens in Australian cinemas December 16
