Roller Derby Slasher Pic MURDERDROME To World Premiere At Monster Fest!
Launched three years ago as the Fantastic Asia Film Festival, Monster Fest is the genre festival offshoot of Monster Pictures. I've been two years in a row and it's definitely one of the most fun festivals to attend, as it's run by fans who respect filmmakers and audiences. It kicks off this year on November 21st in Melbourne.
MurderDrome appears cut from the same cloth as other low budget Aussie exploitation fare, notably El monstro del mar! from 2010. With documentary This is Roller Derby also released this year, it also seems there's a surge of interest in that sport, although fans of that will no doubt be in for a bloody surprise with MurderDrome. Here's the lowdown:
Roller derby dames take on supernatural evil. Cherry Skye just wants to skate, but the vengeful ghost of a killer has plans for her soul. Trapped between the wrath of love scorned and supernatural evil, Skye races towards The MurderDrome at breakneck speed. When she gets there there's no guarantees anyone is coming out alive. Welcome to The MurderDrome, it's not a game anymore.
Check out the teaser below for a look at the rolling madness.
MurderDrome will be distributed by Monster Pictures in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Ireland early next year following its premiere at the festival.
