Storyline

Roller Derby sensation Cherry Skye loves nothing better than competing in her favorite sport. When SKye catches Brad's eye the sparks fly. Unfortunately, she also catches the ire of Brad's ex, her Roller Derby nemesis Hell Grazer! If that isn't bad enough, the heat generated by this romantic rivalry arouses a malevolent demon-spirit, hungry for human souls - especially Skye's! Trapped between the wrath of Hell Grazer and damnation at the Gates of Hell, she has no option but to throw down and sort this mess out the only way she knows. Welcome to the Murderdome.

Trivia

The script was only 45 pages long and it was never meant to be a feature film. The director lost his day job the week shooting began (and by extension the main source of finance for the shoot). He was later evicted and moved back in with his Mom, where some pick up shots were completed. The producer injured himself and had major back surgery a few weeks after shooting began - eliminating both the producer and the only other source of funding for the shoot. The first murder scene was shot three times in two different locations, and they still forgot to shoot the whole scene. A 10 minute green screen sequence was shot after the film was first signed to a distributor to try and make it feature length... but was never completed because nobody knew how to do that really. The film cost less to make than it would cost to buy a second hand car, but this is mainly due to the fact that nobody who worked on it was paid. The film premiered in Melbourne in November 2013 on two sold out screens. MURDERDROME has been released in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, the USA and Canada and has been screened too many times to count by many different derby clubs around the world. At the US premiere in Louisiana some of the Northshore Roller Derby came dressed as characters from the film. MURDERDROME's first review called MURDERDROME "An instant cult classic". MURDERDROME is StrongMan Pictures Entertainment's second feature film, although their first feature, From Parts Unknown : Fight Like A Girl, was only premiered in Melbourne this year. See more »

Aussie Roller Derby Slasher Goes Global
1 April 2014 | by tomchard3See all my reviews

As I sat down in the Theater to watch the first screening of this film, I was unsure what to expect.

However, once I saw the hundreds of excited industry goers arrive, I realised that the hype behind this film was very much real.

To believe this movie was created on a very low to non existent budget, with both cast and crew donating their time to create this project, is very hard to believe. The passion from Strongman Picture's Daniel Armstrong and Anthony Moran bleeds through this film. Not to mention their Cheshire Cat like grins at their premiere. Although at times, the budget constraints are evident, as a whole the film is above a satisfactory level to watch and enjoy in it's entirety.

This was my first look into the "Roller Derby world" and I can see this film fitting into a very comfortable horror niche around the Globe.

If this kind of genre isn't your cup of tea, I strongly advise you to sit down and watch it. If anything, it will get you as excited as I am to see watch Strongman Pictures has in store next!
