IFI is treating film fans to a Horrorthon this Halloween

Words: Ellen Kenny

The Irish Film Institute will screen over a dozen horror films, including three premieres, to celebrate jump scares, monsters and all things spooky this Halloween.

The Irish Film Institute (IFI) has announced the line up of this year’s Horrorthon, taking place from October 27 to October 31, featuring the best of Irish and international horror.

The IFI will premiere three new horror films over the course of the festival. “Final Cut”, a remake of Japanese “One Cut Of The Dead” fresh off of opening Cannes Film Festival, will be screened in the IFI on October 30 at 16:45. “King On Screen”, a new documentary about screen adaptations of Stephen King’s work, will also screen on October 31 at 15:00.

“Something in the Dirt”, a film about paranormal happenings in a Los Angeles apartment, will also premiere on October 30 at 22:50.

Along with new releases, the IFI will also screen some familiar spooky classics. The IFI will screen the original 1977 “Suspiria” with restorations by Dario Argento. A restoration of “Dog Soldiers” for its 20th anniversary will also be screened over the Horrorthon.

Other films featured this Halloween include Super Z (October 27, 22: 45), H4Z4RD (October 28, 21:00), Eating Miss Campbell (October 29, 23:15), The Lake (October 30, 20:50), and Everybody Dies by the End (October 31, 19:00).

Tickets for each film are 11.50 euro for IFI members and 13.50 for non-members. True horror aficionados can also opt in for multi-film passes, ranging in prices from 50 to 150 euro depending on how many films you want to see this Halloween. Early bird 5-day passes cost 120 euro and are available until Monday, October 10.
