“A bold and beautiful exploration of a taboo industry, On the Edge once again demonstrates that empathy is the Soska Sisters’ cinematic superpower.” — The Hollywood News
“by turns distressing, disorienting, funny, moving, and ultimately cathartic.” — Projected Figures
Vancouver, BC — Twin horror directors Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary, Rabid), known as the Soska Sisters, have announced the Australian premiere for On the Edge, their sixth film, third original production, and their first psychological erotic thriller. The Vancouver-lensed horror feature made its world premiere at London’s FrightFest Halloween to rave reviews.
On the Edge stars Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska, who also share writing, directing and producing duties. The film also stars Aramis Sartorio, Ola Dada, Andrea Jin, Brianna and Alanna Finn-Morris, Ivan Decker, Mackenzie Gray, Sophie Buddle. The Soskas produced alongside Glenn Burchnall of Cathasaigh Productions, Luna Wolf of Disturbia Films, and Kevvy of GothMamba Productions.
On the Edge is set to make its Australian premiere at MonsterFest, welcoming the Soska Sisters back following the 2019 screening of Rabid, their remake of David Cronenberg’s 1977 thriller.
On the Edge will screen November 26th at Cinema Nova in Melbourne and on December 9th at venues in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Adelaide. Festival passes and screening tickets are now available.
Family man Peter (Aramis Sartorio) gets more than he paid for when he books a 36-hour session with the sadistic Mistress Satana (Jen Soska) who seems more intent on making him suffer for his sins. Is it blackmail? Is it torture? Or is it the Devil come for his soul? Will Peter’s faith save him from his own personal Hell or is he already damned? A brilliant depiction of how Kink Culture can heal past trauma and be a source for shocking redemption.
