Umbrella Entertainment in association with Monster Fest Presents are pleased to announce Special Event Screenings of BEYOND THE WASTELAND, launching with the World Premiere on February 5th. 

BEYOND THE WASTELAND is a new Australian documentary that examines the culture rooted in MAD MAX (1979) and MAD MAX 2: THE ROAD WARRIOR (1981), both of which became instant international cult films during the 1980s, examining the influence that they have had on contemporary culture by featuring the fans that live and breathe all that is MAD MAX. 

Director/Producer Eddie Beyrouthy and Producer Phil Lambert of The Picture Lot travel the world in search of the ultimate MAD MAX fans and explore the level of obsession these true believers have, from costumes to cars to entire lifestyles.

BEYOND THE WASTELAND will have its World Premiere on Saturday 5th February at Village Cinemas Coburg Drive-In in Melbourne, Victoria.

Following the Premiere, BEYOND THE WASTELAND will travel around Australia in a series of special fan-based event screenings that will feature Q&As with Cast & Crew from both the documentary and the original films, along with MAD MAX-inspired vehicles and  cosplayers.

Monster Pictures in association with Umbrella Entertainment will release the critically acclaimed New Zealand thriller COMING HOME IN THE DARK to Blu-ray & DVD in Australia on November 3.

Following its World Premiere at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in the US earlier this year, COMING HOME IN THE DARK has blazed the international film festival circuit to widespread critical acclaim with an aggregated score of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Based on a short story written by award-winning New Zealand author Owen Marshall, COMING HOME IN THE DARK follows a man who is forced to confront a secret from his past when a pair of ruthless drifters take his family on a nightmare road-trip.

Adapted for the screen by James Ashcroft and his long-time collaborator, writer Eli Kent (Millie Lies Low). As both director and executive producer, the film is James Ashcroft’s feature film directorial debut and he is now tapped to co-write and direct Hollywood blockbuster DEVOLUTION for Legendary Pictures, based off the novel by Max Brooks (World War Z).    

COMING HOME IN THE DARK stars Daniel Gillies (The Vampire Diaries), Erik Thomson (The Luminaries), Miriama McDowell (Head High) and Matthias Luafutu (Ghost in the Shell).

With Aussie cult classic Black Water being released on Blu-Ray through Umbrella Entertainment we sat down this week and had a chat to the film’s director Andre Traucki.
