Adelaide will host the world premiere of new supernatural Australian horror film The School.
Shot in Sydney at Tarban Creek Lunatic Asylum, one of Australia’s original asylums, this claustrophobic and terrifying ghost tale is the feature-length debut of writer and director Ashwood.
The School stars Nicholas Hope (Bad Boy Bubby), Megan Drury (Manny Lewis) and Will McDonald (Home & Away).
A doctor, wife and grieving mother. Amy is falling. It has been two years and she still cannot manage to leave her comatose son, David’s side. Amy falls further into her own selfish and twisted world of obsession and denial, blocking out everything and everyone around her. Meanwhile the walls of the hospital she is neglecting begin to fall apart.
Awakening in what seems to be an abandoned old school, Amy finds herself a prisoner to a hoard of displaced cultish and feral kids. Trapped in a hostile supernatural purgatory for children, Amy becomes an unwilling surrogate mother and must try and escape an impending evil.
As supernatural and psychological terror ensues, Amy must find her way out, fighting against the demonic, supernatural and ultimately her own demons.
The School will screen on Friday, 27 July at 7pm at GU Film House Adelaide. Tickets and details here.
