Dir. Andrzej Zulawski | 1981

4) COMING HOME IN THE DARK
Dir. James Ashcroft | 2021

3) THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT
Dir. Lars von Trier | 2018
Winner of ‘Best Director’ at Monster Fest in 2018, Lars von Trier’s disturbing drama, THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT, follows the highly intelligent Jack (Matt Dillon) over a span of 12 years and introduces the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer.
2) COME TO DADDY
Dir. Ant Timpson | 2019
From the delightfully warped minds that brought you THE GREASY STRANGLER comes Ant Timpson‘s neo-surrealistic, hilarious and thoroughly engaging COME TO DADDY, an intimate and isolated tale of Norval (Elijah Wood) who travels to a remote cabin by the seaside to reconnect with his estranged father (Stephen McHattie).
1) HOUSEBOAT HORROR
Dir. Ollie Martin | 1989
Step aboard filmmaker Ollie Martin’s iconic Aussie slasher HOUSEBOAT HORROR, where the waters of once tranquil Lake Infinity fast become a tidal wave of gore, perms, wool knit jumpers, knock-out Brian Mannix song hits and above all homegrown hilarity. It’s a rite of passage for all Australian citizens to experience Martin’s horror opus and now Umbrella Entertainment are making that possible for all those who reside down under and our Kiwi friends across the ditch for free via BROLLIE.
