Drop is an Australian feature-length horror film. The film is produced by Ben McNeill and Katrina Lubans of Intrinsic Story, and scheduled for release in cinemas in 2021.[1]

The concept of the film is based around the drop bear, a creature of Australian folklore that is a predatory, carnivorous version of the koala (Phascolarctos cinereus). The film's development began in Brisbane, Australia in late 2019 with the release of a sixty second teaser trailer.[2]


Oliver returns to an ailing father and the sheep farm of his childhood. Finding a dwindling family and business under threat, he struggles to engage in a place where nobody talks much. But when a worker he befriends is attacked in the bush, a mysterious creature emerges from folklore. With his family in denial and all their lives at stake, Oliver confronts and challenges their story, the skeleton of a nation in denial of its past.[3]


As a nation of nations, we have legends built on legends and we have characters like the drop bear. Everyone knows it, but there is no one story about where it came from or why it exists, and we have a very intriguing idea behind that which goes beyond the idea of the creature as a joke. The film will offer a moving story that challenges us to look within, look to our history, and ask ourselves if this creature is symbolic perhaps of something deeper, something we continue to tussle with as a country. As such, it might not be a story we expect as a nation - but we believe it’s the story we need.

— Ben McNeill, producer of Drop, about the film.[1]

Intrinsic Story commenced development of Drop in Brisbane, Australia in October 2019 with the online release of a theatrical poster and sixty second teaser trailer. The teaser utilised a newly recorded version of the well-known Australian bush ballad Waltzing Matilda, composed by Josh Beattie and sung by Ben Altschwager.

The clip garnered over 250,000 views in a matter of days across Intrinsic's social media channels, leading the production team to announce that further teasers would be produced.[1]
