Australian Premiere

“A wonderful throwback to the films that once inspired us.” — ScreenAnarchy

A film over 50 years in the making, The Primevals is the culmination of the life’s work of the legendary Oscar-nominated visual effect artist David Allen (Howling, Young Sherlock, Ghostbusters II, Willow). After budgetary woes and David’s tragic early passing at just 54, the film sat unfinished for decades – until now. A glorious tribute to the classic films of Ray Harryhausen and 70s special effects, blending stop motion animation with live action, The Primevals is a true time capsule, and a remarkably eye-popping adventure in its own right.

Deep in the Himalayas, a group of sherpas kill a towering humanoid creature. Convinced that it is the legendary Yeti, Dr. Claire Collier organises an expedition with a crew of experts, including her former student Matt Connor, a long-time believer in the creature’s existence, and big-game hunter Rondo Montana, to search for more specimens. What awaits them is something bigger and more frightening than what any of them could have imagined.
