Sundance WTF sensation THE GREASY STRANGLER will be the Closing Film of the 2016 Monster Fest, Australia’s premier genre festival. The screening will be followed by a GREASY GALA with the two stars of the film, special guests Sky Elobar (Big Brayden) and Michael St. Michaels (Big Ronnie – the Greasy Strangler himself) in person.
In conjunction with the festival, Monster announced the return of the Monster Academy – now dubbed The Swinburne University Media and Communication Monster Academy – a two-day industry conference that takes place Nov 23 and 24th, running up to the festival itself.
Veteran director Ted Kotcheff will appear in person to present the film that many critics regard as the greatest Australian film ever made, his 1971 outback classic WAKE IN FRIGHT, as well as screenings of FIRST BLOOD (1982), WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S (1989) and SPLIT IMAGE (1982).
Kotcheff will also be the keynote speaker at the Swinburne University Media and Communication Monster Academy with a three-hour masterclass on Thursday Nov 24th.
