The twisted, dark and seductive ‘Skinford’, where a touch of immortality is a death sentence, will have its world premiere at Sydney’s inaugural ‘Monster Fest Travelling Sideshow’ Closing Night on Sunday 12 March 2017 from 7pm at Event Cinemas George St, Sydney.
Starring Joshua Brennan (Home and Away, Underbelly) and Puberty Blues’ Charlotte Best in their most revealing roles to date, ‘Skinford’ was directed by Nik Kacevski and produced by George Kacevski, Tess Meyer and Enzo Tedeschi. The 85 minute genre-bending horror-comedy set in the UK was shot entirely in Sydney with extensive filming in Annandale, Arcadia, Chipping Norton, Darlinghurst, Helensburgh, Lilyfield, Marrickville, Menangle, Mosman, Parramatta and Waverton.
It was supposed to be so simple. You do a job, you make the meet, you get paid. As an experienced flipper, Jimmy “Skinny” Skinford (Joshua Brennan) knows the protocol all too well.
Having said that, being kidnapped and forced to dig your own grave will spanner the nicest of deals in the sharpest of ways. But his fortune turns when a push of his dead man’s shovel unearths the opportunity of a life time; a woman (Charlotte Best), buried but still breathing, who just can’t seem to die.
Her mysterious gift extends to others through touch and in her company Skinny launches head first into a scheme of unparalleled mayhem. Coming face to face with the most depraved deviates of the criminal underworld, Skinny will have to pay his dues in order to make the meet, get his payload and have his chance at immortality. But this gift horse comes with plans of her own, and dark consequences that threaten to sever Skinny’s world piece by piece.
Cast including Charlotte Best and crew including Nik Kacevski will walk the ‘Monster Fest Travelling Sideshow’ closing night red carpet and feature as part of an audience Q&A following the film’s premiere.
‘Skinford’ was produced by Australia’s Deadrock Films’ Enzo Tedeschi in partnership with French sales agency and production company Rockzeline, and Executive Producer Antoine Disle.
