Such Zafaris are the ultimate blood sport experience and for many much-needed therapeutic revenge for suffering horrendous family losses.

A soulful and darkly humorous blend of David Cronenberg-style body horror and freewheeling Amblin satire, this beguiling and highly unusual fantasy asks the all-important question: can we kill our demons before they kill us? After holding on to romantic heartbreak for several years, Paul (‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Johnny Galecki) decides to reboot his life, joining a spiritual mountain retreat designed to cleanse debilitating toxins and emotional baggage from his body. But events go from hippie dippy to ultra weird when Paul and his fellow patients discover the repulsive cleansing process releases something far greater than traumatic experiences.
EXTRA - FrightFest wouldn’t be the same without its added attractions. THE MASTER CLEANSE will be preceded by the World Premiere trailer promo for Mike Mort’s NIGHT OF THE TRAMPIRES, the feature film version of the very well received CHUCK STEEL RAGING BALLS OF STEEL JUSTICE.
