To celebrate this year's IFI Horrorthon kicking off on Thursday, October 22, we're giving you the chance to win a 6-film 'American Horror Stories' pass for the online festival!
In the run up to Halloween 2020, IFI Horrorthon, the bloodiest event in the Irish film calendar, is going online nationwide on the IFI's new video-on-demand platform [email protected]. The festival will present 22 features from around the world, plus a special recorded Q&A with the legendary Joe Dante, director of beloved classics including Piranha, Innerspace and Gremlins. Individual online screenings cost €7.50, with great value multi-film packages available. Explore the full programme here.
IFI Horrorthon is also offering special 6-film bundles, for €39.99. The American Horror Stories bundle includes:
Uncle Peckerhead (2020)
Waitress Judy (Chet Siegel) gives up her day job in order to fully commit to her punk band and its upcoming tour. Working on a budget, they hire Peckerhead (David Singleton) as their road manager. However, he has a deadly secret, one the band doesn’t necessarily see as a negative.
The Special (2020)
From the director of Camp Dread and Death House, The Special sees fed-up Jerry (Davy Raphaely) introduced by a friend to the pleasures of a strange brothel, where he is encouraged to try the titular treat, a supreme pleasure after which his life spirals into addiction and murder.
The Oak Room (2020)
Cody Calahan (Antisocial and Let Her Out, both of which featured in previous festivals) returns to Horrorthon with this admirably crafted (and crafty) film. A guy (R.J. Mitte, Breaking Bad) walks into a bar and offers to pay a debt to the bartender by telling him a story.
Ten Minutes to Midnight (2020)
Amy Marlowe (Caroline Williams) is having a bad night. On arriving at the radio station where she’s worked as a DJ for the last 30 years, she discovers that this will be her final shift. Even more troubling is the effect a recent bat bite is having on her in this layered psychological chiller.
Death Ranch (2020)
Taking its cue from ‘70s-style grindhouse, Death Ranch follows the misadventures of a trio of African-American siblings on the run from police who, unfortunately for them, choose as their hideout a secluded ranch owned by a cannibalistic chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. Cornered, the three must defend themselves.
Purgatory Road (2017).
In the American South, brothers Vincent (Gary Cairns), a priest, and Michael (Luke Albright) remain scarred by the suicide of their father following a ruinous robbery. Travelling around with a mobile confessional, the brothers now dispense their own form of justice to those who admit to similar crimes.
IFI Horrorthon runs from October 22 to 26 – with five days of frights and fun.
