This locally produced low-budget feature is a rapid-fire mix of comedy, horror, sci-fi and rom-com. Liz just wants to host a perfect dinner at her and her partner’s newly purchased rural property. It’s a lovely spot and she hasn’t seen her friends for a long time - but with them comes a couple of uninvited guests who upset the apple cart and Liz’s best laid plans with their behaviour, once the alcohol begins to flow.


But bad behaviour is the least of the issues that are about to befall this group of hip young things, as a sinister force begins to reveal itself, and the friends are pitted against each other in a battle for survival.


Absolutely reckless and rocketing from one wild set-piece to another, An Ideal Host is never what you think it is, setting its audience up for a crazy ride that will make you want to revisit some of your sci-fi horror faves.  


Hats off to this local team who obviously enjoyed producing this rollicking “what’ll we do next” piece of exploitation.


Proudly presented by Sandbox and Soundbyte
