The Tribeca Film Festival experience will now be exclusively available in homes across the UK. For an eight week run, UK audiences will be given direct access to watch select Festival titles on demand, both at home and on the go including two horror titles Rubberneck and Fresh Meat.
The initial slate of five films features selections from the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, including Greetings From Tim Buckley and Fresh Meat, as well as favourites from previous Festival editions including Supporting Characters, Rubberneck, and Monogamy.
“American audiences have really enjoyed being able to participate in the Festival experience, not just in New York but from all over the country,” said Robert De Niro, co-founder, Tribeca Film Festival. “We are looking forward to bringing these films to homes across the UK.”
“We launched Tribeca Film three years ago with the goal of giving independent filmmakers a platform to reach a broader audience. Bringing these films to homes in the UK, day and date with the Festival in New York, is the natural evolution of this offering,” said Geoff Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer at Tribeca. “UK film lovers will now be able to sample the range of strong indie filmmaking you can experience at the Festival from the comfort of their own homes.”
A brilliant bunch of movies of particular interest to all horror fans is cannibal horror-comedy Fresh Meat and psycho-sexual thriller Rubberneck, written by, starring and directed by ‘Girls’ star Alex Karpovsky both of which we will have full reviews of very soon.
Fresh Meat, directed by Danny Mulheron, written by Briar Grace-Smith – After a poorly executed escape from the police, a gang of dysfunctional criminals flees to the suburbs and gets more than it bargained for when it crash lands in the garage of an upper-class Maori family whose refined palates have developed a taste for human flesh. This action-packed horror comedy tells a blood-spattered tale of basement butchery and shifting allegiances as these unlikely adversaries enter a deadly showdown.
Rubberneck, directed by Alex Karpovsky – Months after a weekend fling, Boston research scientist Paul (Alex Karpovsky, “Girls”) continues to lust after his beautiful coworker Danielle (Jamie Ray Newman), nurturing his fantasies with the occasional polite exchange at work. But once she starts dating another scientist at their lab, his infatuation quickly turns into obsession – and he finds himself unable to control his desires. A slow-burn character study-turned-psychosexual thriller, co-written by Karpovsky and Garth Donovan, Rubberneck is a chillingly believable story of workplace romance gone wrong.
