Takin out the Trash: WINNERS!!
Hey Freakers, the PROGRAM from last year HAS FINALLY BEEN JUDGED, JURIED AND EXECUTED!! A BIG THANX to all the valued JUDGE Freakers who GREATLY assisted by sharing me their favs. Your identities will remain safe with me. UNLESS, I am indeed tortured or even have a beer bought for me. I will no doubt sing like a canary. I AIN’T squealing like a pig FOR ANYONE!
Apologies for taking so long but this first year back was a rollercoaster. But a BABY in a rollercoaster! Remember how hard it was for babies last year?? It should all be speedier this time round. (specially since my Uncle just built a Methlab in my basement) Since the Aweskum SCREAMING at MONSTERFEST 13, the Trasharama program toured to a bunch of other places. like an undead Leyland brother, it’s been to Adelaide, Geelong, Gold Coast, Townsville, Brisbane, Perth, Tasmania, Alice Springs and Nimbin! And we’ll be doing those again AND upping the anti this time round.
OK, OK, Enuff pissing around. Heres the results as totalled up from the Judges individual decisions.CONGRATS EVERYONE! I LOVED all the movies!!
THIRD PLACE: BAD TIDINGS. Dir: Craig Lipnicki. The Bad Santa felcher Axe murderer fillum.
SECOND PLACE: BUDGET CUTS. Dir: Jarret Gahan. The helpful ‘how to’ guide to serial killing. Probably shouldn’t have screened it in Adelaide. :p
AND THE WINNER IS: (DRUMROLL- somewhere in Snowtown.. )
A LITTLE R & R. Dir: Alex Machin and Frank Daft. Yep, the Meth head goon gang home invasion movie from Tassie! THAT’S pretty trashy to be sure! Congrats guys for being veeery sick. We love it and so do our judges!!
VERY SPECIAL MENTIONS GO TO:
ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND: Daniel Armstrong, POV:Benjamin Morton, ACID SPIDERS: Stuart Simpson, LIONS, TIGERS AND BEARS: Lee Marquardt and NIGHT OF THE GARBAGE MONSTER: Rob Taylor.
