Monster Fest Returns For 2015

Did Halloween give you a taste for something ghoulish? Monster Fest is a three-day celebration of everything gloriously gory and grotesque in international cult cinema. Boasting a program packed with blood soaked thrillers that will have you on the edge of your seat, capping it off is a range of curated events from acting masterclasses to spooktacular parties.

The official selection features 21 films including Bound to Vengance, Scare CampaignBite, Australiens, Vixen Velvet's Zombie Massacre, Bunny the Killing Thing, Hellions and Howl - the story of a werewolf infiltrating a train carriage, leaving the passengers immobilised in an isolated British forest on a stormy night. The program also features two world premieres, with Queensland horror-western Bullets for the Dead making its debut screening alongside Cat Sick Blues.

 

For those who prefer their screams in smaller doses come two short film programs, Monster Shorts and Trasharama, featuring some of the strangest and unsettling cult film making from across the globe.

 

Rounding out Monster Fest is a range of events including opening and closing night parties, a special 10th anniversary screening of Australian horror classic Wolf Creek, a Kooks & Spooks trivia night, a screening of E.T with an all-American style breakfast and Q&A with Dee Wallace (Mary), a rooftop Munsterpalooza burlesque show and a whole heap more. 

 

It's all happening from Thursday November 26 - Sunday November 29 at Lido Cinemas. Head to Monster Fest for all the gory details.
