About Father's Day

Ahab, a man obsessed with exacting a brutal, violent revenge on the man who murdered and raped his dad, joins John, an eager priest, Twink, a hot-headed street hustler, and Chelsea, the little sister he left behind, on an epic quest to find and defeat the mythical monster known as Chris Fuchman AKA The Father’s Day Killer.

Exotic, erotic and just plain psychotic, maverick Canadian production crew Astron-6 have produced the ultimate bad-taste B-movie that is guaranteed to make even the most warped minds grimace in delighted disgust. Lock up your fathers, it’s FATHER’S DAY

This edition of FATHERS DAY is the third and successfully rated version. It is less than 40 seconds shorter than the uncut version and we cut predominately full frontal shots of penis’s.

FATHER’S DAY was refused classification several times by the Classification Board of Australia. More info about the decision can be read here, herehere and here

 

Not since Jason Eisner’s HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN have we seen the genre played so well and so true to its lurid, seedy roots.” “destined to become a midnight movie classic” Astron-6 “are undeniable masters of genre styling and that shows in everything they do. They make movies for people who love movies and who love fun.

FANGORIA

A gleefully tasteless quasi-grindhouse nasty that’s funnier than most of the many such parodic cheesefests that have been created since, well, GRINDHOUSE!

VARIETY

This is real filmmaking – it entertains, it dazzles […] One of the Ten Best Films of 2011!

DAILY FILM DOSE

FATHER’S DAY does not disappoint! Possibly the greatest film ever released under the Troma banner!

ZOMBIES DON’T RUN

FATHER’S DAY is over the top, tasteless, senseless, and completely hilarious.

AIN’T IT COOL NEWS

Troma scored by producing this one. They have a masterpiece on their hands.

COUCH CUTTER

If FATHER’S DAY doesn’t explode in popularity among fans of weird trash cinema, then there is no justice in this world.

MONSTER CHILLER HORROR THEATRE

FATHER’S DAY carpet-bombed my brain! […] I doubt if you’ll ever see anything quite like this again.

QUIET EARTH

Astron-6 has managed to give the viewer an experience that is completely of their own concoction.

BLOODY DISGUSTING

This is one roller coaster ride. FATHER’S DAY is without a doubt a blast that you better not miss

DIGITAL MACABRE

Gratuitous, hilarious and fearless — FATHER’S DAY is my new favourite Troma movie!

Dave Alexander, RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE

“FATHER’S DAY is a schlocky and camp ridden good time.”

FUN WITH HORROR

Lock up your fathers!…or anyone with an anus.

THE LIBERAL DEAD

FATHER’S DAY is outrageous and twisted in the best possible way, full of over-the-top mutilations and disgusting gags.

OH,THE HORROR!

FATHER’S DAY Is An Early Frontrunner For The Year’s Most Awesomely Tasteless Movie” “it’s pretty much exactly like “Moby Dick”, if the whale was a gay rapist cannibal.
