MAYHEM HORROR FESTIVAL
THE DEMON'S ROOK 18
SAT 2 NOV - BOOK NOW
Director: James Sizemore
Cast: Ashleigh Jo Sizemore, James Sizemore
Origin: United States
Duration: 103m
After making a childhood pact with a demon, a grown-up Roscoe returns from the underworld with mystical powers. But three demons pursue him: one who possesses the minds of all she crosses, another transforms a man into a beast and the third summons an army of the dead. Utterly hysterical blood-spurting fun; a DIY homage to all pre-CGI gore effects.

KISS OF THE DAMNED 18
SAT 2 NOV - BOOK NOW
Director: Xan Cassavetes

Origin: United States
Duration: 97m
Having sworn off humans, young vampire Djuna finds peace with her new partner, only for her less hung-up sister to invade their tranquillity and threaten the whole vampire community.

A couple of Vatican investigators head to an isolated country church to report on supernatural activity and find much more than they bargained for in this chilling tale co-written by Severence Screenwriter James Moran.
