Fantastic Fest 2017: New Rabbit Stills and Trailer Hop In

Published

on

One of the flicks playing this year’s Fantastic Fest is writer/director Luke Shanahan’s new thriller, Rabbit; and to celebrate the film’s arrival, we have lots of eye candy for you to feast upon, including the official trailer. Dig it!

From the Press Release:
Stylish new Australian psychological thriller RABBIT is a suspenseful, atmospheric film – inspired by classic 70’s horror – and with surprising twists and genre turns, it’s an intense and unusual portrait of the psychic connection between twins, as viewed through a science fiction lens. 

Featuring a riveting dual lead performance from Adelaide Clemens’ (The Great Gatsby, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Silent Hill) as identical twins with a mysterious psychic connection, her performance deftly blurs the lines between fragility and emotional depth, reality and psychosis. The film also stars Alex Russell (Chronicle, S.W.A.T).

RABBIT is a throwback to the classic psychological 70’s horror genre and a tale of searching for one’s lost identical twin, as our lead Maude endures both psychological and physical terror in pursuit of her missing sister. Employing psychedelic visuals and a mind-bending soundscape, it puts a fresh twist on the classic horror trope of twin sisters – with a psychic connection – in distress.

RABBIT marks the feature debut of one of Australia’s leading new filmmakers, writer/director Luke Shanahan. The film also stars Jonny Pasvolsky (“Westworld”) and Veerle Baetens (The Broken Circle Breakdown, “Tabula Rasa”).

RABBIT world premiered at the 2017 Melbourne Film Festival and makes its North American premiere at Fantastic Fest 2017. Screen Daily said RABBIT is “ambitiously unnerving,” and Screen Anarchy called it a “brilliantly shot mind-fuck.”

Fantastic Fest Screenings:
Friday, September 22, 9:00 pm, Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar (North American Premiere)
Monday, September 25, 2:30 pm, Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar

If you’re not bothered by the sight of maggot-infested corpses, you might be interested in checking out the trailer for Parts Unknown, the new grindhouse-style horror movie from writer and director Richard Chandler (Legless, Scrooge in the Hood, Witch Hunt). As you’ll notice, the trailer is heavy on three things: wrestling, horror, and neon.

In the film, a family of professional wrestlers grow tired of putting their bodies on the line, and decide to seek out a new way to satisfy their bloodlust. It stars Jake Roberts, James Balsamo, Jack Caron, Ken Holmes, James Balsamo, Georgia Rose Matlack, Gary Lee Vincent, and William DeCoff.

WE HAPPY FEW Banned In Australia

Published

on

We Happy Few is the latest game to have fallen victim to the Australian ratings board, as it’s been refused classification in the country. Kotaku got hold of the Classification Board’s report on the game, which states that the ban was due to a drug named Joy, which the player needs to take in order to progress. The rating was refused in accordance with section 1A of the National Classification Code, Computer Games Table, which categories games which are said to do the following:

“Depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified.”

The Australian Classification Board are particularity touchy when it comes to drugs, as the originally banned Fallout 3 for the same reason, so we’re not too surprised that they lost their shit over We Happy Few. Either way, we can expect Gearbox to appeal the decision in the coming weeks, so watch this space.

Developed by Compulsion Games, We Happy Few is a dystopian survival horror set an alternate version of 1964. It will feature three playable character, one of who, ironically, censors newspapers for a living. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like one of the most unique major releases in a long time, so we’ll just have to wait until it releases later this year to see if it lives up to the hype. Unless if you live in Australia, in which case you’ll just have to make do with FIFA 18.
