It’s more a monster than a man in a new chiller arising from Australia later this month.

Winner of six awards, including Best Film and Best Director, at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival, THE FACELESS MAN sees VOD release August 28 from Freedom Cinema. Written and directed by James Di Martino (who talked to us about the movie here), it stars Sophie Thurling, Lucas Pittaway, Andy McPhee (WOLF CREEK), Roger Ward (MAD MAX), Albert Goikhman and Lorin Kauffeld. The synopsis: “Emily [Thurling] is a recovering cancer survivor of three years. Faced with her fear of getting sick again, her best friend Nina [Kauffield] plans a weekend away. Six friends venture out to a country holiday house to party over a weekend. Cut off from the rest of the world, they soon learn the inhabitants are unsettling redneck individuals who terrorize and humiliate travelers. At the same time, a paranormal monster seen as the faceless man haunts the house pushing the friends to their limits.”
