The Horseman

de Steven Kastrissios



Soon after having to identify his own daughter’s body, Christian, a pest controller, receives a video tape that reveals to him a world of sex, drugs and corruption that no father would ever want to know. After desolation comes rage and with it begins this extremely violent road movie where a man and his toolbox travel across Australia in search of revenge. Emphatic in its mise-en-scène and devastating in its realism, Steven Kastrissios’ first film takes us on a journey straight to hell that returns all the harshness of seventies genre movies to the big screen.
