You’re invited to gambol on the wild and weird side with Freak Me Out, the SFF sidebar devoted to everything from exploitation extravaganzas to “highly unusual” arthouse items.
FMO is primed to explode once more with seven sizzling cinematic sensations. Anthologies lead the way this year with the cracking British item Ghost Stories and The Field Guide to Evil, a fabulous foray into the creepy corners of global folklore. Two very different treks to the woods await you in the suspenseful What Keeps You Alive and the zingy punk rock slasher The Ranger. For extreme arthouse stimulation look no further than Brazilian werewolf drama Good Manners and nerve-jangling psychodrama Piercing. FMO is also at The Randwick Ritz for the very first time, with a special sneak peek of Leigh Whannell’s super-juicy sci-fi-horror-action-thriller-SXSW audience award-winner Upgrade. See you in the grindhouse…
