Local thriller/horror feature Pimped will make its world premiere at London’s prestigious Frightfest genre festival on on August 24, at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square, joining more than 70 other horror and fantasy offerings from around the world.
The debut feature from co-writer/director David Barker, Pimped stars Ella Scott Lynch (Love Child, Underbelly, The Code) and Benedict Samuel (Walking Dead, Gotham, The Beautiful Lie), and centres around a psychological and viscous battle between a woman caught in a sick and twisted sexual game and the men that perpetrate the heinous crime.
“It’s a real privilege that the festival selected our film – a wonderful reward for every single person that helped make this possible. Plus, it looks like a killer line-up – we hope to represent the far-flung colonies well,” said Barker.
Produced by Playground Films, Barker’s production company, alongside Annie Kinnane, Pimped will be released in Australian cinemas in early 2019, through Bonsai Films.
