MEDIA RELEASE: MELBOURNE, OCTOBER 2023: TRIM SEASON, a thriller starring Neighbours and Mission Impossible alumni Jane Badler, is premiering in Australia this October offering audiences a bewitching 100-minute thrill-ride.
An ode to all that is creepy, magical and spine-tingling, TRIM SEASON will play across Australia from October 20 at Monster Fest alongside a blood-curdling film program of horror, science fiction, fantasy, dark drama, black comedy, animation, and much more.
TRIM SEASON will take audiences on a trip of self-discovery that turns into a supernatural violent bloodbath. Starring alongside Badler are Bex Taylor-Klaus (The Killing, Star Wars: Squadron), Bethlehem Million (Sick, And Just Like That) and Ally Ioannides (Good Doctor, Elementary) – the all-star cast is set to captivate today’s modern audience through themes of gender, equality and power, providing a reflection on discourse currently playing out across the world.
Jane Badler, actress and producer, TRIM SEASON, commented: “I am so excited to share Trim Season with Australian audiences. Witnessing people squirm in their seats as they watch the film for the first time is something I’ll never get sick of. I can’t wait to experience the rollercoaster that is Trim Season with them at screenings around the country this spooky season.”
Filmed in Utah and directed by Ariel Vida, TRIM SEASON follows Emma and a group of twenty-somethings from Los Angeles up the coast to make quick cash trimming marijuana on a secluded farm in Northern California. Cut off from the rest of the world, they soon realise that the estate is harbouring darker secrets than any of them could imagine. It becomes a race against time for Emma and her friends to escape the dense woods with their lives.
Vida brings her award winning direction and artistry to TRIM SEASON having won Best Production Design at the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival and artistic directing Childish Gambino’s Sober music video, which has been viewed over 100 million times on YouTube.
