Started back in 2006 the original gory, blood curdling, scream inducing Night of Horror International Film Festival was merely a short film festival when it first began. It has since spread its wings and is now pretty much the only place to be seen, dead or alive, for avid horror movie fans.
This year’s festival boasts 15 feature films, 70 short films and music videos, and a screenplay competition.
Competing with Wolf Creek for Australia’s scariest movie, try catching The Tunnel which is about an investigative journalist and her team’s harrowing journey through Sydney’s underground disused train tunnels. A sure heart stopper, The Reef, is a shark attack flick following unassuming swimmers in the Great Barrier Reef battling for their dear lives.
Not enough B&G for you? That's fine, we're not done yet. U.S movie, Dead Hooker In A Trunk, the name pretty much gives away the story, is on the schedule. As is Monster Mash-Up - expect plenty of vampires, killer insects and demons - and 80’s inspired clichéd horror, Blood Junkie. Do not miss the highly anticipated world premier of Midnight Son, with plenty of vampires lusting and blood, making TV series True Blood look like a kids cooking show.
The festival takes place from Thursday 31st of March with all the movie gore and guts finishing up on the 8th of April. All films will be shown at Dendy Cinema in Newtown, tickets are now on sale for the blood thirsty out there....
