"...A tense, twisty, stylish noir featuring an A-list ensemble of Australian character actors..." - Film Ink
"...a fantastic piece of pulp film I'd recommend to anyone who enjoys a good thriller..." - Film Bunker
From award-winning director Heath Davis (Broke, Bookweek) and featuring an all-star cast of some of Australia’s finest character actors including Ben Geurens (Reign) Jessica McNamee (Battle of the Sexes, The Meg), Andy McPhee (Sons of Anarchy) and the final screen performance from the immensely talented Damian Hill, Locusts presents a gritty outback noir for the ages. When tech entrepreneur Ryan Black returns to his remote hometown to attend his father’s funeral, old family tensions are soon reignited. Dark secrets lie deep beneath the surface of this small town and Ryan quickly becomes entangled with a gang of thugs from his father’s past, the target of a deadly extortion racket. Already garnering comparisons to stone-cold classics the Cohen Brothers’ Blood Simple and Oliver Stone’s U-Turn, Locusts is undoubtedly the must-see Australian genre film of the year.
