A new teaser for upcoming Australian feature film The Burning Kiss has been released and it showcases the film's surreal hybrid style and offbeat narration about finding an unusual sea creature that has been washed ashore.
"The film has a fun midnight movie sensibility and in terms of the Southern gothic influence, it's definitely a bit more lined up with lowbrow pop stuff like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? and Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill! than Tennessee Williams. At the same time, there's elements in the film that are quite experimental and cerebral so I'm excited to see how the film will go over with audiences," says director Robbie Studsor.
The Burning Kiss marks the debut of newly established Australian production company Caltiki Pictures, which has Studsor as one of its principals. The company will have a focus on inventive, provocative 'artsploitation' genre cinema. "There are some really exciting genre styles developing internationally, and Caltiki is dedicated to developing these kinds of films here in Australia," comments Studsor. "After 31 years' research, I'm convinced there's enough weirdos down here with unusual tastes to make this thing work!"
