"Throwback" is the horror/adventure feature from Australian filmmaker Travis Bain, available now on Monster Pictures DVD in Australia and DVD and Blu-ray in the UK. "Throwback" was released in the US on July 21st but the DVD is FAULTY. It has a glitch which makes it skip over 9 minutes of crucial footage from the middle of the film, including several key scenes featuring Vernon Wells. The distributor MVD Entertainment is working to rectify this problem. Please check back here for updates about when this problem will be resolved.
"Throwback" had its US premiere at the Famous Monsters Film Festival in San Jose, California, in May 2014 and won the Best Foreign Film award.

Synopsis: Jack and Kent are two down-on-their-luck pest exterminators. One hot summer weekend, they venture deep into the jungles of Far North Queensland in search of a big score: the lost gold of legendary outlaw "Thunderclap" Newman, who vanished without a trace in the 1800s. But they find more than they bargained for when they encounter a Yowie, Australia's answer to Bigfoot, a savage superprimate with a strong territorial streak. Jack and Kent find themselves playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with the Yowie, together with a feisty female park ranger named Rhiannon and an unhinged ex-cop named McNab. "Throwback" stars Shawn Brack, Anthony Ring, Melanie Serafin and Vernon Wells ("Mad Max 2", "Commando").
