The weekend is about to kick off. With the ocean calm, the weather warm and the sun setting over the hills, two psychopathic siblings – Emma and Peterson, pit stop on their road trip of bloodshed at the sleepy beach-side town of Cecil Bay.
‘Bad Behaviour’ will have you on the precipice of intrigue as you are thrown into Emma and Peterson’s encounter with their fierce predator and debt collector Voyte Parker; a cop confronting the people who murdered his son; and the day a man finds his wife is cheating on him. ‘Bad Behaviour’ joins the
intersecting storylines of murderers, coppers, teachers and teenagers; exposing their eventual demise.
This black comedy/neo-noir picture embodies the very same ‘cool’ of the beach side town it’s set in, providing you with an eerie fantasy landscape characterized by a fusion of graphic violence and punchy dialogue.
In the coming weeks an official press kit, teaser trailer, preview poster and website will be released in preparation for Bad Behaviour's entry into the film festival circuit.
