Noelle and Addie have just moved into a beautiful, though impossibly cheap, apartment on Manhattan’s prestigious Upper East Side. Not long after their arrival, Addie’s behaviour our drastically changes, as she begins to sleepwalk and speak in a strange child’s voice, much to the horror of her boyfriend Greg. Noelle, meanwhile, becomes intrigued by a mysterious young woman who inexplicably shows up at their apartment, who reveals that she believes the apartment was previously owned by infamous sex criminal and friend of government elites, Jeffrey Epstein. Determined to uncover the truth, Noelle joins the woman in her search; a journey which takes them deeper into the illicit and occult world of terrifying globalist conspiracies, where violence lurks at every turn.
With strong anti-establishment sensibilities, well executed social and political satire, plentiful sex and nudity, and a satisfyingly bleak and violent final act, writer/director/co-star Dasha Nekrasova’s THE SCARY OF SIXTY-FIRST is an unfiltered and wholly original, contemporary exploitation-horror film. Paying homage to 70s Euro-horror through its gel-heavy 16mm cinematography by Hunter Zimny and a throbbing score by Eli Keszler
