Monster Pictures have acquired Australian/New Zealand distribution rights to Tru Dot Films’ feature Living Space. Written and directed by Steven Spiel, this supernatural horror will play a series of Monster Fest Presents screenings across Australia this March.
Filmmakers Steven Spiel (writer/director), Natalie Forward (producer) and Branco Grabovac (cinematographer) will be in attendance at the screenings along with select cast & crew to field a post-film Q&A. Details below.
A romantic holiday takes a sinister turn when Brad and Ashley’s car breaks down in the German countryside. Forced to take refuge in an isolated farmhouse they thought to be abandoned, the couple quickly learn that the house holds a dark past. Thrust into a supernatural nightmare, the pair must battle malevolent forces lead by an undead Nazi general if they wish to survive the night.
Living Space stars Leigh Scully (Deep Water, Home & Away), Georgia Chara (Wentworth, Home & Away), Andy McPhee (Sons of Anarchy, Saving Mr Banks), Jolene Anderson (All Saints, Rush), Emma Leonard (800 Words), Charlotte McLeod and Amelia Ayres.
“I’m extremely excited that Monster Pictures will be distributing Living Space,” said Spiel.
“They are a leading horror distributor within Australia and I feel its the perfect home for this film. The fact Australians have the opportunity to see Living Space in a theatrical environment is a huge accomplishment for all involved.” he continued.
“The film is a horror fan’s delight,” said producer Natalie Forward. “It really seeps into your psyche and will have you thinking about it for days. The set was terrifying. The house we used lent itself perfectly to a horror film and really is a character of its own in the film. For an independent film to receive a theatrical release in Australia is tough and it truly shows the quality we were able to achieve.”
Living Space attracted some of Australia’s best crew including special effects artist Steven Boyle (Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, King Kong, Predestination), cinematographer Branco Grabovac (Witches) and set designer Das Patterson (The Dressmaker, The Legend of Ben Hall), all of whom have contributed to making the film a success.
The deal was negotiated between Tru Dot Films and Monster Pictures with international sales being handled by Jinga Films.
