Father's DayCanada/USA, 2011 : Alberta Premiere
Father’s Day is the batshit crazy first feature film from Winnipeg film collective Astron-6. Working together with beloved cult production house Troma, Astron-6 have created a horror-action grindhouse throwback that’s destined to be a cult classic.
Fathers are mysteriously being raped and murdered all over the city and there’s only one man who can put a stop to these gruesome acts: Ahab, who seeks revenge for his murdered dad. Joined by John, an eager priest, and Twink, a hot-headed street hustler, the trio venture on an epic quest to fi nd and defeat the psychopath known as The Father’s Day Killer.
Gleefully ultraviolent and sleazy, Father’s Day has all the makings of a midnight movie classic. Lock up your fathers!
