I Am Not a Serial Killer set for a limited theatrical release later in Australia

After premiering to rave reviews at the Melbourne International Film Festival last month and at SXSW earlier in the year, Irish director Billy O’Brien’s I Am Not a Serial Killer – based on Dan Wells’ best-selling YA novel – will now see a limited theatrical release in Australia this spring, with seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

The dark coming-of-age thriller stars Max Records (Where the Wild Things are) as John Wayne Cleaver, a teenager who works in the family funeral home – maybe not the best job for a diagnosed sociopath, but one that becomes an unexpected lifeline when a serial killer begins stalking his wintry mid western town and he must tap his own dark instincts to stop the killer before he strikes again.

Co-starring Christopher Lloyd and Laura Fraser, the film promises “an off-beat tone and a killer soundtrack.” Check out the trailer here:

Monster Pictures will be launching its Melbourne and Brisbane seasons with special event screenings, featuring Skype Q+As with director Billy O’Brien and selected members of the cast and crew followed by themed after parties, featuring the ‘Cleaver Family Daiquiri of Death’ a specially concocted pink daiquiri emulating embalmers fluid.

Event screenings will be held on the 22nd and 23rd of September in Brisbane and Melbourne while national release is on September 29.
