‘His house, your nightmare!’
Living Space is a 2018 Australian psychological horror film written and directed by Steven Spiel. The Tru Dot Films production stars Georgia Chara, Andy McPhee and Emma Leonard.
College sweethearts Brad (Leigh Scully) and Ashleigh (Georgia Chara) venture into the heartland of Germany.
Their romantic holiday takes a sinister turn when they encounter a German SS Officer (Andy McPhee) and his family (Jolene Anderson and Emma Leonard), thrusting them into a psychological vortex revealing there is not always life in a ‘Living Space’…
Producer Natalie Forward has said “the film is a horror fan’s delight. It really seeps into your psyche and will have you thinking about it for days. The set was terrifying. The house we used lent itself perfectly to a horror film and really is a character of its own in the film. For an independent film to receive a theatrical release in Australia is tough and it truly shows the quality we were able to achieve.”
Writer/director Steven Spiel has commented. “I knew exactly what I wanted to achieve by creating this film. I was wanting to excite the audience from the very start. I wanted to send the audience on a rollercoaster ride of different emotions to ensure that people could escape their daily lives even if just for 80 minutes. Living Space is a horror/thriller based on an ideology but not rooted in reality. I feel it’s perfect for someone new to horror as well as seasoned fans .”
Monster Pictures has acquired Australian/New Zealand distribution rights with international sales being handled by Jinga Films. Living Space has its world premiere on March 10th at Event Cinema George Street as part of the Monster Fest Traveling Road Show.
