Award-win­ning Aus­tralian pro­duc­tion house Black For­est Films are hav­ing the World Pre­miere of their 4th fea­ture film The Viper’s Hex at this year’s Mon­ster Fest – Aus­tralia’s lead­ing genre fes­ti­val. The Viper’s Hex is an Aus­tralian/ Ja­panese co-pro­duc­tion and stars Sawa Masaki (Un­der­wa­ter Love), Kaori Kawabuchi (Fi­nal Fan­tasy XV), Yoji Ya­mada (The Out­sider), Saya Mi­nami (Mi­dori in Hawaii), Kenji Shi­mada (Mondo Yakuza) and Ja­panese academy award win­ner Yuki Kuroda (Gakko III). To bring the film to life, Black For­est Films have part­nered up with the in­cred­i­ble post-pro­duc­tion team at Roar Dig­i­tal who have a rich his­tory in Aus­tralian cinema and have worked on films such as Chop­per and Romper Stom­per.

Kiyo (Saya Mi­nami) is a lonely host­ess who spends her days propo­si­tion­ing men on the cold streets of Tokyo un­der the watch­ful eye of her vi­o­lent pimp, Tet­suya (Yoji Ya­mada). One day her luck seems to change when she meets a charm­ing for­eigner named Anchin (Kenji Shi­mada) and a ro­mance blos­soms, how­ever this is short lived as Anchin flees Tokyo leav­ing Kiyo heart­bro­ken and her world be­gins to fall apart. In her des­per­a­tion for an­swers, she turns to a venge­ful spirit she has known since birth, lead­ing her on a bloody path to re­venge.

The Viper's Hex is a pitch-black drama/hor­ror from the cre­ators of Mondo Yakuza, Un­der A Kalei­do­scope and The Per­fect Non­sense. The screen­ing will be held at Lido Cine­mas on Satur­day, 25h November at 9pm in Lido Cinema, Hawthorn.
