While on the rink, Roller Derby sensation, Cherry Skye catches the eye of Brad and sparks fly. She also catches the ire of Brad’s ex, and her Roller Derby nemesis Hell Grazer! If that isn’t bad enough, the heat generated by this romantic rivalry arouses a malevolent, meat hook wielding, demon, hungry for human souls – especially Skye’s! The demon murderess unleashes bloody havoc on Skye and her hapless team mates. Trapped between the wrath of Hell Grazer and a Satanic assassin on rollerblades, Cherry has no option but face both in a blood-drenched showdown in Hell’s rollerderby rink – THE MURDERDROME.
Premiering at Monster Fest 2013, MurderDrome has been garnered praise from fans and critics alike:
“Director Daniel Armstrong rivals Quentin Tarantino in his zest for girl-on-girl violence” – The Age
MurderDrome was produced by Melbourne based production company Strongman Pictures Entertainment, and written, directed and edited by Daniel Armstrong. Daniel has worked on a number of Australian DIY features, including Richard Wolstencroft’s The Beautiful & Damned, Brett Anstey’s Damned By Dawn and his first, as yet unreleased, feature film, From Parts Unknown: Fight Like A Girl.
“To say MurderDrome was a labour of love is an understatement. It was produced over three years on the smell of an oily rag. It was shot in conditions that were less than favourable with a tiny part-time crew. It’s my hope that all of this has ultimately translated into a hyper-coloured, fast paced and fun little film that invites its audience along for the ride.” Daniel Armstrong – Director
Monster Pictures will be opening the gates to the MurderDrome on the 19th of March. Come in and get your copy on DVD. The DVD will include a Cast and Crew Picture-in-Picture Commentary, Gag ‘n’ Stack reel, VFX Breakdown, Music Video’s and Trailers.
