Texas Chain Saw Massacre meets Shaun of the Dead in Two Heads Creek!
By James Whittington, Tuesday 21st July 2020

Frightfest Presents and Signature Entertainment present Two Head Creek, a cannibalistic tale of Brits abroad, and a very witty slice of shocks and horror, starring Kathryn Wilder (All is True) and Stephen Hunter (The Hobbit Trilogy).

After the death of their adoptive mother, a shy butcher and his drama queen sister leave the UK and adventure to Australia in search of their biological mother, but the local townsfolk of Two Heads Creek are hiding a dark secret: the pair must reconcile their differences to fight for their lives in this playfully dark comedy-horror. The BBQ is lit and it's kill-or-be-killed in this hilarious, once-in-a-lifetime trip, also starring Gary Sweet (Wolf Creek) and Kerry Armstrong (Lantana). Two Heads Creek comes from the producers of Better Watch Out.

FrightFest Presents and Signature Entertainment present Two Heads Creek on Digital HD September 7th.
