At SXSW this year, Brian Salisbury was forced to use phrases like “utterly nonsensical,” “hybrid of ebonics and techno club lingo,” and “chump-ass posers” because other words just wouldn’t do to review The FP. The feverish, sweaty film seems to be a mess of genre goodness. Where other films may be love letters to the 1980s, The FP is calling up the era to see if it wants to fuck.

According to a press release, the film has now officially escaped the festival grind as Drafthouse Films has made The FP its next acquisition.

The movie features two rival gangs that vie for the supremacy over the turf of Fraizer Park by busting out mad matches of a dance-fighting game called “Beat-Beat Revalation.” Of course, as Salisbury points out, everyone seems to be wearing Snake Plissken’s eye patch, so enjoy that added visual bonus rolling around in your imagination right now.

What sounds like a cult-as-hell movie joins Four Lions and The ABCs of Death in the Drafthouse family. That’s a family game night we’d love to be invited to.
