After a production spanning almost a decade, Strongman Pictures Entertainment in association with PCWe is proud to announce the World Premiere of From Parts Unknown: Fight Like a Girl on the 10th of January 2015 at the Thornbury Theatre. The screening will be accompanied by a set from The Mercy Kills and live pro wrestling.
From Parts Unknown: Fight Like a Girl tells the story of Charlie. After watching her Daddy die in the ring, She sets out to become a wrestler in his memory. The only things stopping her are a disapproving boyfriend, a demanding day job and a soul-crushing boss – whose corporate shenanigans threaten to unleash hordes of zombies upon the earth! Charlie has no choice up to open up a can of whoop-ass and take these murderous Jabronis for a stroll down smack down boulevard!
On October 6th 2006, 85 people came together for a 42 day shoot that spanned more than 6 months. The film went into production with less than $5,000, no director of photography, no editor, no composer, no sound designer, and no access to any kind of post-production facility. Add disappearing investors and a rouge department head running up excessive “research” costs. These difficulties would lead to seven years plus of post-production hell. A bad deal with the wrong people ultimately left the filmmakers without any sound files. With no more money and no resources left to salvage the film From Parts Unknown had to be shelved – indefinitely.
Fast-forward a few years and the director’s life took an unexpected turn – he accidently made an international cult film. What started off as a short film, turned into a web series, turned into a feature film and finally became The World’s First Roller Derby Slasher Movie: MurderDrome. MurderDrome has headlined two film festivals and been distributed in Australia, New Zealand, The UK, Ireland, the USA and Canada and inspired over 50 fan organised screenings all over the world. This success gave From Parts Unknown a second wind and the filmmakers went back to the source material and rebuilt the film from scratch!
‘So I just had to make that film, lose it, make another film, then make FPU again to get her there. I do sure hope someone likes it.’ – Director, Daniel Armstrong
