MAYHEM FILM FESTIVAL - Friday line up.



So we move on to Friday at this years MAYHEM Film Festival, Four film Friday, Three new movies and a Sci-Fi Horror classic!
As with MAYHEM most years they always show a classic movie or two and this year one of those films is non other than Mario Bava masterpiece Planet of the vampires. Can't wait to see that one on the big screen.

First up at 4PM is Mexican movie WE ARE THE FLESH.


MAYHEM FILM FESTIVAL
WE ARE THE FLESH 18
FRI 14 OCT 
Director: Emiliano Rocha Minter

After wandering a ruined city for years looking for food and shelter, two siblings discover an older man who promises to take care of them and, as they begin to create a womb-like cave for him, a disturbing sexual relationship emerges. Uncompromisingly graphic, provocative cinema from a truly independent debut film hailed by the director of THE REVENANT, Alejandro Iñárritu, this is a unique glimpse into Mexican genre cinema at its darkest.

Following humanity’s thwarting of a zombie apocalypse, a holiday resort offers people a safari with a difference: your chance to hunt and kill the walking dead. Zombie movies have often been used to carry a contemporary message about the world we live in and Barker (OUTPOST) uses the platform the genre offers to make the living dead relevant again. WESTWORLD meets THE WALKING DEAD!

Outrageous, gross, offensive and utterly compelling, there is nothing like THE GREASY STRANGLER out there. Lonely Braydon lives alone with his father, Big Ronnie. Incapable of being with his girlfriend without his dad trying to use his smooth moves on her, Braydon grows more frustrated, all the while the Greasy Strangler (a murderer covered in grease) continues to kill and kill again. Could his grease loving father be the killer? A cult movie in the making.

So the fourth and final film on the Friday is the Fantastic Planet Of the Vampires. Recently remastered this is a classic that you really must see on the big screen!



MAYHEM FILM FESTIVAL
PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES 15

Cast: Barry Sullivan, Norma Bengell

Year: 1968
Duration: 88m
Restored and remastered under the supervision of Nicolas Winding Refn (THE NEON DEMON) at the Cannes Film Festival. 

Beautiful, haunting, stylish and over the top, Bava's sci-fi horror film was a huge influence on ALIEN. Answering a distress signal, the crew of a space ship head to a hazardous alien planet and encounter devastating horror.



“It is a truly great film, it’s melodramatic; it’s operatic; it’s campy; has great music; leather costumes; space ships; it has really wacky dialogue.” Nicolas Winding Refn

"The best SF film ever made in Italy." Fangoria

Please note this event will start promptly at the advertised time 11PM
