Sororal is an Australian giallo-inspired movie directed by Sam Barrett, and after two and a half years of post-production, it’s finally set to make its highly anticipated debut at Melbourne’s Monsterfest 2013.
From the Press Release
The team at Nakatomi Pictures is very pleased to announce the world premiere this month of their genre-bending feature Sororal, Australia’s first giallo-inspired thriller, at the country’s premier film festival for lovers of contemporary and classic genre, Melbourne’s Monsterfest 2013.
The November 24th screening will be followed by a Q&A session with key team members including director Sam Barrett and cast members Amanda Woodhams and Liam Graham.
A heady whirlwind of genetic experimentation, mind control, telekinetic power struggles, and twisted art revolve around Sororal’s heroine, Cassie (Woodhams), a troubled artist who tries to make sense of her vivid, violent dreams by committing her visions to canvas.
The film’s two-and-a-half-year journey through post-production has seen anticipation ahead of its release ramp up among rabid giallo fans, especially over the last 12 months. “Post is always more extensive for indie features like ours so we were strapped in for a long ride,” says Barrett, “but we’ve been astounded at the level of passion and the obsessive attention to detail from the post sound department, music, and visual effects. Those guys pulled this thing off like a prison break – it was inspiring to watch. We’re all extremely proud of the film and are so excited to be premiering at a festival that has quickly become the spiritual home for horror in Australia.”
“Sororal’s debut as part of our first weekend’s Terror Australis showcase is fantastic for Monsterfest 2013,” says festival director Neil Foley. “While securing The Exorcist’s Linda Blair as this year’s guest of honour is certainly a coup, I’m also very pleased that Sororal’s festival journey is starting here and that our new Australian genre programming will finish so strongly with Sororal screening last on the Sunday evening – it’s such an accomplished and polished third feature from Nakatomi that festival goers have been waiting to see.”
Cassie is tormented by visions of murder. Terrifying images flood her dreams and attack her waking hours. Her dreams are her curse and keep her isolated from the everyday world. Cassie’s life is thrown into disarray when a mysterious detective comes to her with a bombshell: He tells her that her visions are depictions of real murders, murders that she couldn’t possibly have seen. Cassie’s pain now has a face, and she must stop the killing at all costs. The twisted, childlike killer targets Cassie’s loved ones, and the race is on to stop her. Cassie is thrown together with her former lover as they scramble towards a shocking revelation that will change everything.
