Check out the Line-Up for 14th South African HorrorFest

horrorfest

Is it even October without a good slate of horror films? Thank goodness, the HorrorFest at the Labia is here to save us all.

There is a selection of new, classic, indie and local film premieres, as well as the Bloody Parchment night of dark literature and the Halloween dress-up competition. 

Viewers can get the chance to see Halloween, Overlord and Slender Man with pre-release screenings before the rest of the world. You can buy tickets at  www.horrorfest.info

HorrorFest also has unique documentaries (this year including a look at the Hong Kong exploitation movies of the ’90s, and a doc digging into the huge Halloween haunted attraction industry in the USA). On-line booking at Quicket.co.za
