Trenchard-Smith’s robust and unashamedly outlandish career in film and television produced a number of screen gems, many of which never made it to movie theatres. The NFSA invites you to spend a day inside the brain of one of our most prolific and surprising directors by serving up a selection of super-rarities on a range of formats - including VHS!
Megido: The Omega Code 2 (2001) - In Brian's words: 'Both bizarre and spectacular in a cheesy way. The Omen meets Air Force One in The End Of Days, they fight The Battle of the Bulge to be rewarded with The Second Coming'
Happy Face Murders (1999) - a bizarre made-for-TV whodunnit that will turn your brain inside out
Britannic (2000) - another genre-bending made-for-TV miracle - spies on a ship - starring Jacqueline Bisset
Official Denial (1993) - an alien abduction military-murder mystery adventure
Leprechaun 3 (1995) - The American slasher film and the third instalment and first direct-to-video entry in the magnificently ridiculous Leprechaun series
Arctic Blast (2010) - An Australian-Canadian disaster film centred on a colossal blast of heavily chilled mesosphere air spreading over the Earth. It's up to a Hobart scientist to save the day - obviously
Voyage of Terror (1998) - Martin Sheen stars in this bizarre germ sci-fi set on a Caribbean cruise ship. Germ POV a highlight
PLUS some special BTS-directed TV episodes thrown in for good measure!
