Revelation Perth International Film Festival looks at the goings-on of the film world in Western Australia for the month of October (and beyond).
Australian Revelations is Revelation Film Festival's monthly screening programme and as it’s nearly Halloween, they’re bringing you a taste of horror with a film that’s been called 'Pretty In Pink' meets 'Wolf Creek'!
Starting out as a coming-of-age movie, there's a rapid gear change and something far nastier emerges in this blood-splattered horror classic-to-be. Expect mirror disco balls, prom queens, dirty kitchens, nails and blood. To say any more would give too much away.
There's a real joy for gore and grossness here, a true celebration of the genre devoid of apology. 'The Loved Ones' is a must see for fans of the genre.
28 October, The Backlot Perth.
