Ahead of its upcoming screening at FrightFest, we've been treated to the first trailer for Odin’s Eye’s The Furies, an upcoming slasher that's being described as "a gripping female-driven horror film," and holy hell does it look like a bloody good time!
Check out the brutal trailer below and read on to learn more.
In the film from the producer of the immensely disturbing Killing Ground, Kayla and her best friend are abducted and dumped in the middle of nowhere. Together with six other women, they are unwilling participants in a deadly game. A game that can only have one winner. What will they do to survive?
The film’s Sydney-based writer and director, Tony D’Aquino, stated that his main objective with the film was to capture the look and feel of the uncompromising horror films of the ‘70s. Also, in creating the eight killers in The Furies, the team drew inspiration from Halloween, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Friday the 13th, The Burning, (finally, The Burning gets some love!) and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
D'Aquinto stated that he wanted to "do everything in camera, not in CGI" explaining: "I want the violence to be messy and visceral!" And you can tell that he meant what he said by watching the film's trailer!
Supposedly, over one hundred liters of blood were used during production of the film in the country town of Bywong – a historic gold mining village just outside of Australia’s capital city, Canberra.
The Furies will also be released in Australia on November 7th. Let's hope it makes its way stateside soon!
