About Barry

FRIED BARRY is a film completely out of the ordinary – a first in the history of South African cinema. It’s a truly underground, cult film that is set to make its mark on world cinema.¬†

Barry is a drug-addled, abusive bastard who – after yet another bender – is abducted by aliens. Barry takes a backseat as an alien visitor assumes control of his body and takes it for a joyride through Cape Town, South Africa. What follows is an onslaught of drugs, sex and violence as our alien tourist enters the weird and wonderful world of humankind.

FRIED BARRY is based upon the short film of the same name, which earned 59 official selections and 13 wins at festivals around the world.

The short film received its wide release through iHORROR – the internet’s premier horror news platform. It has since developed a cult following, gaining hundreds of thousands of views¬†across platforms as well as over 100 FRIED BARRY fan art submissions.
