The Furies (Tony D'Aquino, 2019) wr. Tony D'Aquino; Airlie Dodds, Linda Ngo, Taylor Ferguson
A kidnapped woman finds herself an unwilling participant in a deadly game where woman are hunted by masked men; released 7Nov2019
An above-average riff on the reliable 'hunting humans for sport' scenario that’s been around at least as far back as 1932’s RKO thriller The Most Dangerous Game, The Furies marks a solid feature debut for Aussie writer-director Tony D’Aquino. A pacy tale about kidnapped women being butchered by mutant monstrosities while sickos pay to watch online, this well-produced Ozploitation effort has the heavy-duty gore to excite horror hounds and packs enough of a girl-power punch to avoid dismissal as just another misogynist slasher movie. Debuting in Asia at BiFan after screenings in Brussels Fantastic Festival and Edinburgh, these 'Furies' are certain to be let loose at many more genre-related events, and also have a shot at theatrical exposure in Australia and beyond.
