The Gold Coast Film Festival and home venue, HOTA, Home of the Arts are thrilled to present a special in-person(!) screening event of new film Bloody Hell on Sunday 26 July.

Originally scheduled to be the Closing Night film of the 2020 Gold Coast Film Festival, Bloody Hell is a dark, comedic thriller starring Ben O’Toole (Detroit, 12 Strong, Nekrotronic) as lead character Rex Coen. From director Alister Grierson, and produced by Gold Coaster Brett Thornquest, Bloody Hell was shot on the Gold Coast, with locations doubling as Idaho and Finland.
