Monster Fest Reveal 2014 Program
Australia's foremost celebration of international cult and horror cinema, Monster Fest, is back for 2014 and today they've announced their program in all its gory.
This year Cinema Nova and Yah Yah's (which will also be turned into the festival's lounge and event space, The Monster's Lair) will play host to screenings to some of the scariest, weirdest, most twisted and depraved films from Australia and around the world.
Kicking off on Thursday November 20 with Chris Sun's slasher reboot Charlie's Farm, some highlights of the festival include screenings of The Green Inferno, Dead Snow 2, Under A Kaleidoscope, The Plague and Honeymoon.
The international guest list this year boasts a host of cult movie luminaries, including The Twisted Twins (Jen & Sylvia Soska - pictured), Ashley C. Williams (star of The Human Centipede - First Sequence), Conor Sweeney and Matthew Kennedy (star and director of Astron 6's The Editor) and the king of trash cinema, Lloyd Kaufman.
For the first time ever festival is also running a series of master classes called The Monster Fest Academy of Horror & Mayhem, a one-stop-shop for anyone interested in the art of genre filmmaking. Featuring some of the key players in the genre world today, including Astron 6 (Fathers Day, The Editor), Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare), Matthew A. Brown (Julia), Colin and Cameron Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres), Aaron Sterns (Wolf Creek 2), Jon Hewitt (Acolytes, Turkey Shoot), Chris Brown (Daybreakers, The Proposition, The Company of Wolves) and more, participants will be guided through the genre filmmaking process from concept through to delivery, distribution and exhibition.
