Fantasia 2018 Premiere. NZ sci-fi comedy about a petty crook looking to make a name for himself who happens upon an ancient Chinese amulet that allows him to travel 2 minutes back in time. One (of several) catches being that every time he does so, he creates a duplicate of himself. Throwing all time-space continuum caution to the wind, he starts using the amulet’s powers recklessly, creating a small army of duplicates which he dubs the ‘Mega Time Squad’, but each one’s just as tragically dim as the original. Soon he finds himself up against his criminal boss (Jonny Brugh, What We Do in the Shadows), his own traitorous clones, and an ancient demon all while he’s just trying to find his courage and get the girl.

“One of Fantastic Fest’s best films … Don't sleep on this one!” - Amelia Emberwing, Birth.Movies.Death

Dystopian sci-fi thriller set in a bunker-based school for orphaned girls whose teachings are obedience and etiquette so that the students can one day be ‘adopted’ by good parents. When a formerly disgraced student now seeking redemption in the eyes of the school’s strict headmistress discovers the truth behind the school’s ‘good grooming’, and just what kind of a world lies in wait for the students outside of the institution’s walls, she and her classmates find themselves at the center of a revolution whose stakes are both their survival and their morality.

“A compelling thriller that serves as a powerful metaphor for the unnatural standards society places on women.” - Courtney Small, Cinema Axis

“An engaging, earnest and thrilling feminist fairy tale that both consciously riffs on earlier films and yet maintains an original vision without becoming clichéd or predictable.” - Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, AWFJ Women on Film

“A sharp little sci-fi thriller that does dystopia right, and like all the best bleak visions of a future world, it offers commentary worth sinking your teeth into.” - Haleigh Foutch, Collider.

Lords of Chaos

Mar 21 to Mar 23
Thursday to Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Jonas Akerlund - 2019 - 117m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special! $8 general / $6 students with ids

Starring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Jack Kilmer, Sky Ferreira, Valter Skargrard - A teenager's quest to launch Norwegian Black Metal in Oslo in the 1980s results in a very violent outcome. Lords of Chaos tells the true story of True Norwegian Black Metal and its most notorious practitioners - a group of young men with a flair for publicity, church-burning and murder: MAYHEM.

“…pretty bloody entertaining…”, Anthony O'Connor, FILMINK (Australia)

“It's like a teen-delinquent b-movie from the 1950s, only with more death, more blood, and more church-burnings. Also crazed black-metal concert-goers chewing on a raw pig's head that's been tossed into their midst.” - Kurt Loder, Reason Online

“Oddly compelling - not least because Åkerlund ensures that the film never takes itself as seriously as its subjects did.” - Michael Nordine, indieWire
