ABOUT “LE ACCELERATOR”:

Winner of the ‘Best Midnight Feature’ award at Columbus Ohio’s Nightmare Film Festival 2017, Thomas Eikrem’s “Le Accelerator” is the story of an assassin who goes on a spiritual journey after being tasked with taking down 10 individuals sentenced to death, for unknown reasons, across the globe. It is a death meditation – as the protagonist believes the only thing men have in common is the knowledge of their last destination: death! There is no escape. He does not make a change, he just accelerates the journey for those who are on his list. It’s a blood drenched, corpse strewn, journey that sees the protagonist discover the true meaning of life and death.

Shot on Super 8MM black and white film, “Le Accelerator” is a beautifully unfettered, Molotov mix of sex, violence, fetish and twisted fun, that seamlessly splices two hard-hitting film genres, 1960s crime and 1970s Kung Fu, to create something so timeless it hurts.

Starring David Sakurai, Tim Dry, Hayley Leggs, Maria Popska, Josef Spøjs, Sebastian Solo, Liz Carr, Bobby Rhodes, James VanBebber, Louise Cho, Lucie Bee, Sophia Disgrace, Alice Bizarre, Dan Van Husen, Sly Moriarty, Rasmus Begtoft, Dennis Haladyn, Greg Burridge, Erin Angel, Jynx Pro-wrestler, Amy Elizabeth Kingsmill, Livia Alour, Michael Østergaard, Mia Nadja Gad Olsen, Thomas Herning Højmose, Philip Thomas Pedersen, Elvira Friis and many more. Music by Rockford Kabine.
