Eeeeek! Monster Fest is just around the corner, folks! As we are gearing up for the most shock-worthy film festival of the year, it is time to do a little digging through the programme. Presenting you with some of the wackiest releases straight from Asia, Fantastic Asia will showcase the latest work by the one – the ONLY – Noboru Iguchi. As one of the most stunningly brilliant (and oddball) Japanese filmmakers of the present day, Iguchi’s films deliver most note-worthy and unforgettable entertainment. Working within the adult, horror, and thriller genres, Iguchi’s narratives are all very… Well, […]
Andrew Traucki’s THE JUNGLE will be premiering at Monster Fest this year (Saturday 23 November). In what is sure to be a highlight of the festival, Traucki himself will be in attendance to answer questions from the audience. We caught up with Traucki to talk about THE JUNGLE and his career thus far. On the phone to the director we catch him outside, wind howling. He excuses himself to find shelter. Where is he I wonder; a deserted beach somewhere, scaling a precarious mountaintop, his backyard perhaps?! Having watched his films, one can’t help but entertain the idea that he’s […]
Our own Monster Queen, Kitty Killeral interviews the surf/60’s/rockabilly band, La Bastard who will be rocking at the Monster Fest opening night party. Click HERE to get your tickets for opening night.
We sit down with the director and composer of Sororal and talk about the creature on this truly unique Australian genre gem. Click HERE to books your ticket, before it’s too late.
Sororal is an ode to Italian giallo, and one of the most unique and astute Australian features in eons. Sam Barrett lives and breaths genre, but this is much more than mere homage — confronting, powerful and beautiful, it is a serious work of art in its own right.
The stars of Beckoning the Butcher sit down and tells us about the making of their unique found footage film. BOOK YOUR TICKET NOW
Chris Shaw was an internet sensation with his video channel on legitimising and bebunking rituals and legends of paranormal entities. For his latest video, Chris, his girlfriend and three friends head out to rural Victoria to perform the ritual ‘Beckoning the Butcher’ for his online fans, but the video never made it online. All five people involved in the ritual went missing and the only clue into their disappearences is on Chris’ video camera which he […]
We’re all getting a bit excited as we draw closer and closer to the wonderful Linda Blair coming over here for the 40thanniversary showing of The Exorcist. Her legendary performance as Reagan got us thinking about children in films. An English proverb says that ‘the soul is healed by being with children’; but then whoever said that obviously never had to contend with some of the under-16s John Noonan writes about in this list of five killer kid films.
The Children – The Children (2008)
Ah, Christmas. According to many, it’s the most wonderful time of […]

While sitting here enjoying a quiet coffee in a trendy cafe surrounded by hipsters, I am confronted by a blood drenched mess who introduces himself as Dick Dale, the FestEVIL director of the ‘nastiest short fillum program in Oz’, Trasharama-a-Go-Go. He proudly exclaims he is covered in blood after shooting a short for Monster Fest called “We Love Dick” in which he gets “ripped apart by half naked and topless zombie girls who then eat me and fornicate with my body parts while getting it on with each other.” The reaction on my face is one of clear confusion/arousal, […]
For months Monster Pictures have been searching the land for a horror hosting vixen, a Monster Queen to make a name for herself as the face of Monster Pictures, Australia’s only dedicated horror film distribution company.
We are urging all vamps, babes and wannabe horror super starlets to come strut your wicked stuff as we search for the sassiest, most original, most outrageous femme fatale to fly the Monster flag.
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE THE MONSTER QUEEN??
A Monster Queen is a vixen who lives, breathes and […]
