The theatrical release date of John Jarratt’s directorial debut, StalkHer has been confirmed, with the star of Wolf Creek and Wolf Creek 2 committing to an up close and personal promotional tour with co-director and StalkHer leading lady Kaarin Fairfax which will see them introduce advance screenings, conduct Q&As and join fans for the odd round of karaoke (yep, you heard right) in the lead up to the film’s August 27 date.

Jarratt performs an original track titled “Killer In Me”, which is featured during the closing credits of StalkHer, and has clocked up over 110,000 views on YouTube.

In the spirit of the film’s inappropriate dark humour, Jarratt and Fairfax will hit the local pubs in selected towns around Australia and invite preview audiences to compete with his formidable set of lungs in after party karaoke competitions (see below for tour dates and locations).

Says Jarratt, who will be touring for StalkHer in between filming dates for his latest role in Boar,  “I am really looking forward to hitting the road and showcasing StalkHer as well as having a bit of fun with my fans”.

“We are going to celebrate the release of StalkHer around Australia in almost 50 cinemas. I’ll be on the road from Geelong to Townsville and Sydney to Perth. Big cities, small cities, big towns, small towns; we are going to party in a cinema near you. See you soon!”

Written by Kris Maric and co-directed by Kaarin Fairfax (who donned Jarratt’s director hat whilst he was tied to a chair) who also co-stars with Jarratt, StalkHer is the tale of two people destined for each other, yet destined to be each other’s demise. Offering raw dialogue and characters that will make you laugh at all the wrong things, StalkHer is a gritty battle of the sexes with verbal and physical blows that come thick and fast. Audiences will be kept guessing as they follow twists and turns that lead them to truly wonder who is the cat and who is the mouse in this demented lover’s game.

The soundtrack to StalkHer will be released by Remote Control Records, featuring the likes of Nick Cave, Skyhooks and Sarah Blasko, with a few surprises – including John Jarratt’s song debut ‘Killer in Me’ and the forthcoming single performed by Kaarin Fairfax’s two daughters, Maddy and Memphis Kelly (aka Wishful) – the sultry dive-bar-esque title track, StalkHer.

Distributed by The Backlot Films and initially released in over 40 cinemas around Australia, StalkHer is the ultimate Romeo and Juliet story that got old and bitter, with grit and gusto that will bowl the audiences over in shock and laughter. It’s a dark, demented look at love, sex, and kitchen renovations for the over 40’s.
