West Coast Premiere

A man in his thirties fruitlessly searches for a remote cabin in the middle of nowhere, dreaming of the reunion with his father that he’s waited a lifetime for. But the reality of what he finds when he gets to the cabin is so outlandish, so weird, and so wonderful that it has to be seen to be believed.

Ant Timpson’s COME TO DADDY is the kind of experience BEYOND FEST was built for⁠—a crazy, balls-to-the-wall odyssey of a young man who’s mysteriously invited by his long-lost father to reunite and rendezvous in the hinterlands of New Zealand whilst being thrown into a world of unexpected violence. And shit-pens.

Blessed with a cast including a brilliant Elijah Wood, a vicious Stephen McHattie, and a hilarious Michael Smiley, COME TO DADDY heralds the feature debut of Ant Timpson, a producer-turned-director who has been honing his craft on such gems as 2015’s DEATHGASM, and who is now ready to unleash upon you the kind-of wild & out-there genre cinema we pray for daily, dear audience. Bloody and funny in equal measure, COME TO DADDY will make you simultaneously laugh and squirm whilst urging you to deal with any daddy issues you might have.

A massive hit at Tribeca, where it premiered earlier this year, and blazing a trail of madness across the genre festival circuit, COME TO DADDY is coming home to Los Angeles; Beyond Fest is beyond delighted to present Timpson’s West Coast Premiere to the audience it was naturally created for.
