Christopher Webster [Celluloid 07.06.11] Australia movie news horror comedy



Riffing on the 80s slasher genre is nothing new and when a movie start to get too smart for their own good it can really run off the rails (ie. Detention). The Killage, a new and VERY independent Australian slasher parody looks like it might avoid the pitfall of being straight-up annoying by actual being funny and oozing a ton of indie charm.

Synopsis:
A group of eleven recruits, composed entirely of excruciating social stereotypes, and one dorky camp instructor, embark on a weekend-long work retreat in the quasi-wilderness of northern south-east Queensland. Everything goes relatively smoothly, that is to say, lamely, until (you guessed it) one of the group turns out to be a homicidal maniac hell-bent on dispatching the others in a variety of creative ways. Based on the Pulitzer-Prize-winning novel (sic), The Killage is a wacky, fright-filled journey into the darkest recesses of the human intestines. Bring a box of tissues.

The Killage plays at the Bram Stoker International Film Festival in Whitby England in October.


Written and directed by Joe Bauer, it stars Rita Artmann, Joe Bauer, Dryden Bingham, Jess' Thomas-Hall, Daniel S. Johnston, Meisha Lowe, Andrew O'Sullivan, Carmel Savage, Cameron Sowden, Mark Theodossiou, Johancee Theron and Laura Jane Turner

"Trus" -- okay, I legitimately laughed at that. Bravo.
