Horror Comedy Two Heads Creek Takes Characters to Strange Lands in 2020
Two Heads Creek is a horror comedy from the minds of Jesse O'Brien (Alien Arrival) and Jordan Waller. In the film, a brother and sister search for the birthplace of their biological mother. Leaving the United Kingdom behind for Australia, these siblings find something strange - in the Outback. Two Heads Creek had its World Premiere in October of 2019, at Monster Fest. Now, this title has been picked up by the Horror Collective for a future U.S. release (Deadline). Starring Kathryn Wilder ("Frontier"), Jordan Waller and Helen Dallimore, a trailer for the film is available here, along with the U.S. artwork. Director O'Brien has talked about the film at a few festivals. He introduces the film as "irreverent, kooky, quirky, horror-comedy, very much more comedy than horror (Supanova)." A lot of that comedy comes from the interactions between characters Norman (Waller) and Annabelle (Wilder). O'Brien also mentions the

Producers-led Australian distributor enters the market with ‘Two Heads Creek’

Jordan Waller in ‘Two Heads Creek.’

Producers Brett Thornquest, Steven Matusko and Mat Graham have launched Entertainment Advocate, an Australian distribution company with the aim of handling a limited number of Oz, Us and UK titles each year.

The banner’s debut release, Two Heads Creek, a macabre, irreverent horror comedy directed by Jesse O’Brien, opened last weekend after premiering at Monster Fest.

While the weekend gross was a modest $14,000 including festival screenings, Matusko, who is partnered with Thornquest in Eclectik Vision, tells If: “We understand the business and will approach distribution with a producer’s mindset rather than a distributor’s.

“We are not looking to outbid larger distribution companies but we want to work with other Australian producers and also to release select films from the UK and Us.”

Graham was one of the producers on Eclectik Vision’s Infini and The Osiris Child, both directed by Shane Abbess.

Jordan Waller: ‘I told friends I had three mums’

The great thing about having gay parents, says the Victoria and Darkest Hour actor Jordan Waller, is that ‘you know you were really wanted’

Aged seven, Jordan Waller’s biggest obsession was a scrapbook in which he catalogued different types of lesbians. He shows me the book: there are “fat hippy dyke”, “sporty dyke”, “diesel dyke”, “career dyke”, and many more – each sketched in appropriate garb, with their characteristics neatly listed. “Mum absolutely loved it. It was my party piece. We called it the endyke-lopedia, and she’d get me to show it around all her friends.”

Waller, who plays Lord Alfred Paget in the TV series Victoria, struggling with his feelings for another man, grew up with not just one mum but three. “First, there’s my biological mother, Miranda, who got pregnant with me via a sperm donor in 1991,” he says. “Then there’s Dawn, her partner at the time,

Movie Review – Darkest Hour (2017)

Darkest Hour, 2017.

Directed by Joe Wright.

Starring Gary Oldman, Lily James, Kristin Scott Thomas, Stephen Dillane, Samuel West, Jordan Waller, Ronald Pickup, and Ben Mendelsohn.

Synopsis:

During the early days of World War II, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler, or fight on against incredible odds.

Before even beginning to praise the authentic and physically transformative Academy Award-worthy performance from legendary actor Gary Oldman portraying arguably the greatest politician in history, Prime Minister of Great Britain Winston Churchill, it should be made clear that the excellence doesn’t start and stop with the chameleon-like appearance or the numerous rousing speeches of defiance. Director Joe Wright (no stranger to period pieces and biopics having helmed features such as Atonement and Anna Karenina) understands that even the most lifelike depiction possible of the curmudgeonly yet bracingly

Gary Oldman will run away with Best Actor for his work in “Darkest Hour”

There are times when the prognostication world anoints a presumed Oscar winner, only to have the film or the performance fall flat when actually seen. Then, there are other times when the movie or performer meets expectations and the victor should begin writing up their speech for the Academy Awards. More often than not, the former winds up being true. Gary Oldman is a case of the latter, as his turn in Darkest Hour is 100% going to win him the Oscar for Best Actor. It’s just a done deal, Academy wise. Beginning its theatrical run today, it’s also a quality biopic that’s more than simply shameless awards bait. The film is a look at British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Oldman), how he came to power during the early days of World War II, and his agonizing decision over whether to negotiate with Hitler or fight on.
