Fennell, who got his start in TV on The Movie Show on SBS, will present the best in cult, action, thriller and horror movies from around the world.
These films are popcorn movies with an edge; nail biters with mindbending twists. They are over the top, crazy, high-intensity, silly, and fun, with lots of ninja roundhouse kicks, scary suspense, ka-pow moments, blood, gore and horror
This killer season of films will feature free-to-air premieres of thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed, China’s biggest box office hit to date Let The Bullets Fly, cannibal flick The Pack, slasher film Rabies, murderous Spanish horror Julia’s Eyes, and Korean films Demon Empire, and The Man From Nowhere.
The Disappearance of Alice Creed – Saturday July 27, 9.30pm
The first flick is The Disappearance of Alice Creed, a British thriller where two criminals Vic and Danny fortify an apartment and kidnap Alice Creed, the daughter of a wealthy businessman. They fastidiously handcuff Alice to the bed, all in a careful attempt to make sure that she won’t escape and they won’t get caught. Whilst held captive in a soundproofed room, it is clear that everything is not as it seems and that each of those involved knows more than they are willing to disclose. Directed by J. Blakeson and stars Gemma Arterton, Martin Compston and Eddie Marsan. “If you stay for the opening scene I guarantee you will be there right to the end”, says Marc Fennell.
