A shock, horror role for Fennell
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.
