Terror-Fi Film Festival, Roxy Cinema
Terror-Fi Film Festival
The Terror-Fi Film Festival returns to Wellington this Halloween to celebrate the very best horror, thriller and sci-fi films from around the world. The festival runs from 31 October to 4 November.
This year’s line-up includes eight exciting New Zealand premieres, two Wellington premieres, and two retro classics. Many of the films are hot off the back of their World Premieres at the Toronto Film Festival and Fantastic Fest.
Headline films include J.J. Abrams & Bad Robot’s Nazi action horror OVERLORD, and the acclaimed remake of the 1970’s horror classic SUSPIRIA. Stanley Kubrick’s classic THE SHINING is the special opening night presentation, in collaboration with The Roxy and Coco at the Roxy. Fans will be immersed in Kubrick’s world as The Roxy is transformed into The Overlook Hotel, with themed food, a jazz band and a bubbling blood REDRUM cocktail.
The hilarious zombie horror Christmas musical ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE will have audiences in stitches, and the B-movie-gore in PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH is buckets of fun. This year’s sci-fi’s are SXSW Winner PROSPECT, the indie sci-fi western, and John Carpenter’s classic THEY LIVE. Direct from the Toronto Film Festival comes the outrageous black comedy thriller ASSASSINATION NATION, and rounding off the list is the UK scare-fest GHOST STORIES, starring Martin Freeman, the shape-shifter thriller LIFECHANGER, and the Korean action-thriller BELIEVER.
Last but not least, there’s a very special SECRET SCREENING that will have its second-ever festival showing at Terror-Fi. Don’t miss out on that one!
