Weekend of scares at Monster Fest this July

MONSTER FEST, Australia’s premier genre film festival  is regarded as one of the most important events  on the  genre film festival calendar and in  an ongoing partnership  with  Event Cinemas  returns to  the  GU Film House  Hindley Street  with the  MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW ADELAIDE  from  Friday,  July  27, to Sunday,  July 29,  with a host of World, Australian and  South Australian premieres. Tickets to the scary festival are now on-sale at tickets are available now at https://www.eventcinemas.com.au/EventsFestivals/MonsterFestTravellingSideshow#cinemas=88 Opening the festival is the World Premiere of the highly anticipated supernatural Australian horror,  THE SCHOOL. Shot in Sydney at Tarban Creek Lunatic Asylum, one of Australia's original asylums, this claustrophobic and terrifying ghost tale is the feature-length debut of writer/director  Storm Ashwood.  Starring a cast of familiar faces from Australian film and television that include  Nicholas Hope (BAD BOY BUBBY), Megan Drury (MANNY LEWIS)  and  Will McDonald (HOME & AWAY). Our  MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW  screening will be followed by a Cast & Crew Q&A that includes  Storm Ashwood,  Megan Drury, Nichols Hope  and the  No Frills Twins, Vanessa and Ianna Rogers.  Following  directly on from  The School  we are presenting  Rolf de Heer’s  multi-award winning  BAD BOY BUBBY  which  will celebrate its 25th  Anniversary at  MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW  with a unique special  event screening hosted by Bubby himself, actor  Nicholas Hope. Fresh from Fantasia International Film Festival, we present our  Closing Night Film,  SUMMER OF 84, in its Australian  Premiere. This sophomore feature from  TURBO KID  filmmakers  François Simard,  Anouk Whissell & Yoann-Karl Whissell is part detective story and part cat-and-mouse game, all told through the dark perspective we’ve grown accustom to by  this trio of filmmakers. Following its ‘surprise we secretly made a sequel’ screening at South by  Southwest,  UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB  has fast become one of the most  anticipated horror films of 2018 and we are pleased to present its Australian  Premiere. Steven Susco’s follow-up to the wildly successful 2014 film comes with the one caveat that “the internet  always has the upper hand, and it’s not interested in happy endings” – IndieWire. After garnering strong critical acclaim on its international film festival blitz,  Lynne  Ramsay’s  YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE  makes its South Australian debut.  Starring  Joaquin Phoenix,  this stylish and exceptional feature confidently walks a  tightrope between hypnotic neo-noir and brutal revenge thriller and is one not to  be missed on the big screen. In association with  Umbrella Entertainment,  we are proud to present the Worlds on  Film: Beyond Genres Blu-ray launch of  RAZORBACK. This will mark the South  Australian premiere of the stunning all-new  4K Restoration  of  Russell Mulcahy’s  1984 Australian masterpiece. Our last two announcements for our Adelaide leg of  MONSTER FEST  TRAVELLING SIDESHOW  work as perfect companions to one another. First up is the South Australian Premiere of  WOLFMAN’S GOT NARDS, a lovingly  crafted feature- length documentary on the enduring legacy of the 1987 classic  THE MONSTER SQUAD, directed by  André Gower, who played Sean in the film. Finally we are pleased to host a retrospective screening of Fred Dekker’s  THE  MONSTER SQUAD, a kick-ass celebration of Universal Monsters and everything  eighties that pits a motley bunch of kids head-to-head with a legion of ghouls.   What:  Monster Fest Travelling Sideshow (Adelaide) Website Event -  http://www.monsterfest.com.au/events/mfts-adelaide2018/ Where:  GU Film House Adelaide 128 Hindley St, Adelaide SA 5000 (08) 8210 6000 When: 27th to 29th of July 2018  Tickets:  https://www.eventcinemas.com.au Single Session Tickets Adult $21 Concession $17.50 5 Film Multi-Pass Adult $82.50 Concession $71.50 VIP Film Pass Adult $104 Concession $88
