Our second monthly screening at The Old Hairdressers is also going to be part of Glasgow Film Festival 2015, folding into their Strewth! strand. We’re bringing the Ozploitation to the GFF party, specifically Brian Trenchard-Smith’s Stunt Rock (1980), by kind arrangement with the director himself. Here’s the blurb we wrote for the brochure:
“Death Wish at 120 Decibels! No, the tagline doesn’t make sense, but when you’ve named your film Stunt Rock, there’s not much else to say. A high-octane, death-proof vehicle for Mad Max stunt coordinator and industry legend Grant Page, Stunt Rock is a shamelessly crowd-pleasing mix of blood-curdling stunt work and Spinal Tap-esque rock music (courtesy of magician-musicians Sorcery). As thin on plot as Page is thick of hide, Stunt Rock is an unfiltered, hilarious blast of pure cinema.”
Our supporting feature is Stunt Love (Dir. Matthew Bate, 2011), a short documentary, by kind arrangement with Australia’s Closer Productions. Here’s the trailer:
The event is free, but ticketed. Seating is limited, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
Tickets are available via EventBrite, here: bit.ly/stunt-rock

Finally, here’s the absolutely awesome poster designed for us by Stephen Kelly:
