What in Tarnation?! That is precisely what many will be thinking when they gaze their innocent eyes upon Daniel Armstrong’s most ambitious project to date; Tarnation. With been following the film for as long as we can remember and we’ve been hooked ever since the first image. This one looks utterly bizarre, crazy and utterly awesome! While we don’t have a domestic release date just yet, we can reveal that the film will receive its world premiere this November 24th at Australia’s Monsterfest.
From the Press Release:
TARNATION is the fourth DIY genre feature directed by Daniel Armstrong and produced by Melbourne’s Strongman Pictures Entertainment. Previous films include the international cult hit roller derby slasher MURDERDROME, the wrestle-ploitation action flick FROM PARTS UNKNOWN, and the multi-award winning sci-fi action rampage SHEBORG MASSACRE.
TARNATION stars award winning actress Daisy Masterman (SHEBORG MASSACRE, MURDERDROME, GWEN STEFANI’S KUU KUU HARAJUKU GIRLS, BLOODLINES) in the lead role of Oscar. Emma Louise-Wilson (SHEBORG MASSACRE, FROM PARTS UNKNOWN, UTOPIA) appears as Wheels, Danae Swinburne (CATSICK BLUES, SHEBORG MASSACRE) plays Rain. Blake Johnson, Joshua Diaz, Sean McIntyre, and Mitchel Brotz round out the rest of the main cast. Melbourne sleaze-punk rock stars The Mercy Kills also appear in the film, and wrote and performed the title track, with Daisy Masterman taking the mic as guest vocalist.
When Oscar’s dreams of becoming a rock star are brutally crushed and her boyfriend leaves, taking the cat with him, Oscar is forced to take a long hard look at herself. Oscar travels to a ghost town called Tarnation where she and a group of friends have rented a cabin in the woods for a weekend away. Unfortunately the cabin is host to a cursed painting and the surrounding woods are literally, Satan’s playground. Oscar soon finds herself battling a demon unicorn, possessed souls and Satan himself in an epic battle for her soul.
TARNATION will have it’s World Premiere screening at the Lido Cinema in Melbourne on November 24th, at 9:30pm as part of Monsterfest 2017. Tickets can be purchased here.
