Bloody Hell (1)

Bloody Hell

Bloody Hell poster

During a bank robbery, Rex, a fella with the habit of talking to himself or his personified conscience, takes down the robbers and after several gunshots, he successfully secures the entire establishment but unfortunately, the whole successful mission ends in a tragic way for which he is tried and imprisoned. After doing his time, he moves to Finland for a break but gets trapped by a twisted cannibal family with a very dark secret.

From acclaimed director Alistair Grierson (SANCTUM) comes a mind-boggling horror-comedy trip that will leave you with your head spinning, your least concern being why an Australian film is spoken in Finnish. WTF? Bloody Hell!

He experiments to make the machine go smoothly and obtain a patent, but his nurse (Eva Habermann) thinks the machine is dangerous and not ready.

c

Tasya Vos is a corporate agent who uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people's bodies, driving them to commit assassinations for the benefit of the company.

As her mental strain intensifies, she begins to lose control, and soon she finds herself trapped in the mind of a man whose identity threatens to destroy her own.

South Mill District

poster South Mill District

Ten years have passed since the alien war, and now the line between human and alien is blurred. The film follows two vagrants who were once subjects of a dangerous experiment involving the assimilation of alien and human DNA. Their bodies were hollowed out by over-sized spiders, bio-engineered by EonCorp, a corporation with evil intentions. The spiders used their bodies as dwelling places until the assimilation process was complete, and their bodies regenerated. Now they wander around the South Mill District, waiting for the spider's mutagenic virus to do what it was meant to do.
