It’s always very exciting when a Canberra made feature film gets its debut (and well done to Dendy for putting these things on).
Here’s the Dendy blurb:
Peter Tunks is a bitter sarcastic loser, who upon winning the lottery found that he had only won $3200.23. Depressed and angry about his minuscule winnings, Peter Tunks spends two days contemplating the point of living on his couch. He came to the conclusion that is was all not worth it, and called up a suicide hotline to inform the counsellor that he was going to kill himself and he should send someone to clean up his remains. At first the councillor on the other end appears quite unconventional, and ends up being almost as negative as Peter. While Peter found the conversation enjoyable he still wished to die. The councillor on the other end of the phone, made him an offer to solve his finical situation.
Peter Tunks is bought to a warehouse and forced into a Russian roulette situation for the grand prize of 5 million dollars or death. There are twelve contestants that Peter must survive against for the prize, all under the watchful gaze of a beautiful hostess, Kelly.
The contestants are whittled away as the rounds progress, until the victor has emerged.
Developed, filmed and produced entirely in Canberra by local based company Velton Studios.
