As everyone knows, October is scary movie season.
Crisper weather and whisperings of Halloween make it the perfect time to curl up with a pal and get your scare on…pals needed for warmth and of course moral support.
The Irish Film Institute’s Horrorthon is set to return once again for five days of frights and fun. A celebration of all your favourite fiendish flicks, this year’s festival will combine both homegrown and international talent to make sure you’re left truly terrified.
Running from Thursday 24 to Monday 28 October, the festival celebrates some of the best in the biz from new releases to old-school cult classics and everything in between.
