It’s been awhile since we’ve had anything to report about Australian filmmaker Travis Bain’s homage to 70s Bigfoot flicks, entitled Throwback, but today that silence has been broken with news that the film is finally ready for its festival premiere. Read on for details!
Throwback will have its North American premiere at California’s Famous Monsters Film Festival, taking place in San Jose on May 17th and 18th. The film has yet to be picked up for home video/VOD distribution, but we can expect that to happen shortly.
Written and directed by Bain, the film stars Shawn Brack, Anthony Ring, Vernon Wells, and Melanie Serafin.
Two modern-day treasure hunters — Jack and Kent — venture into the remote jungles of Far North Queensland in search of lost bushranger gold. But their adventure goes terribly awry when they are threatened by a savage creature, a legendary monster known as a Yowie, Australia’s answer to Bigfoot. Together with a female park ranger named Rhiannon and a burnt-out ex-homicide detective, Jack and Kent find themselves locked in a battle for survival as the territorial Yowie tries to ensure they never leave its domain alive.
