A shock, hor­ror role for Fen­nell

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

FILM critic Marc Fen­nell (pic­tured), brings the best of cult, ac­tion, thriller and hor­ror movies from around the world on to SBS2 on Satur­days. The Feed host’s seg­ment will fea­ture edgy pop­corn movies and nail-biters with mind­bend­ing twists. They would be over the top, crazy, high­in­ten­sity, silly, fun and fea­ture ninja round­house kicks, scary sus­pense, ka-pow mo­ments, blood, gore and hor­ror screams. The sea­son opens with a free-to-air pre­miere of the Bri­tish thriller The Dis­ap­pear­ance of Alice Creed (Satur­day, July 27, 9.30pm). Crim­i­nals Vic and Danny for­tify an apart­ment and kid­nap Alice Creed, the daugh­ter of a wealthy busi­ness­man. They fas­tid­i­ously hand­cuff Alice to the bed. Whilst held cap­tive, it is clear that ev­ery­thing is not as it seems and that each of those in­volved knows more than they are will­ing to dis­close. Di­rected by J. Blake­son and stars Gemma Arter­ton, Martin Comp­ston and Ed­die Marsan. ‘‘If you stay for the open­ing scene I guar­an­tee you will be there right to the end,’’ says Fen­nell. Other films to screen in­clude the No.1 Chi­nese box-of­fice hit Let The Bul­lets Fly, can­ni­bal flick The Pack, slasher film Rabies, mur­der­ous Span­ish hor­ror flick Ju­lia’s Eyes and Korean films De­mon Em­pire and The Man From Nowhere.

Mark Fen­nell presents: Satur­days from July 27, 9.30pm, SBS2.
