Dale Domazar (Ry Barrett) is a washed-up private investigator and “cult-buster” whose last cult bust resulted in a mass suicide. Kallie Jones (Liv Collins) is a realtor who needs to control everything. With her husband Brad (Justin Bott) sleepwalking through life, Kallie is certain a stay at Master Jagori’s (Tony Burgess) retreat for men will help their marriage. But when Brad extends his stay against Kallie’s wishes, she suspects he’s been indoctrinated into a cult and calls Dale for help. This moment couldn’t have come at a better time, giving Dale a chance to redeem himself with this “Karen” lite, and—you guessed it—mayhem ensues, especially when they discover Master Jagori’s sinister plan.
Jesse Thomas Cook’s MONSTER BRAWL was a frenetic monster and wrestling mash-up, screened at Fantasia in 2011, and it was nominated for Best Canadian Feature. He’s back with another over-the-top comedy with the World Premiere of CULT HERO. Cook co-wrote CULT HERO with the film’s stars Collins and Burgess, blending parodies of reality TV and self-help experts with a kooky “Karen” type who just may find some redemption if she can give up her Type-A personality to chaos. With countless gags, lots of gore, and outrageous performances from Barrett and Collins as unlikely partners in cult-busting, CULT HERO bursts off the screen with absurdly nutso energy. – Carolyn Mauricette
