DIRECTORIAL FEATURE FILM DEBUT BY RONA WALTER
- COSMIC HORROR / ACTION / ADVENTURE (2021) -
in distribution process
TOXICA is as low budget action horror thriller that was born out of impatience and made in the style of 'El Mariachi'.
Shot in 33 days over 4 months in Borneo (Indonesia), and the UK, the movie is an original idea by writer /director Rona Walter, inspired by her studies and interest in history and mystery.
The 3 unique stunt fight sequences show stage combat on several stages, mostly filmed in long takes and edited with very few cuts, to appreciate choreography and geography.
The practical effects are designed by FX creators from 'Troy', 'The Mummy Returns', 'Prometheus' and 'His House' to name a few. Others are brought to life by puppeteers from the 'The Dark Crystal' tv series and "The Muppets".
Most props were designed from scratch and include handmade artwork from award-winning artist Andrea Reich.
Influenced by the impressive visuals of the era of silent film, and the unique visions of Tim Burton, TOXICA's locations are deliberately removed from our Uber-prominent reality portrayed in movies. By crafting almost fantastical sets, each location is almost treated as a character.
TOXICA focusses on character driven drama for actors who appreciate a challenge.
