We here at Monster Pictures are no stranger to controversy, and censorship issues. In a way it sometimes feels like we are back in the 80’s again, with the mind set of those who wanted to ban just about everything!
Even the tame films back then were dubbed sadist and sick, films got to be known as VIDEO NASTIES. Are we in a new wave?
Well you can chime in on the discussion, at our special event VIDEO NASTIES: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE, where the amazing documentary VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC, CENSORSHIP AND VIDEOTAPE will be screened.
I know a lot of you fiends out there are excited for the World Premiere of CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY VANILLA at Monster Fest!
Well to gear up for that, feast your eyes on the final trailer for the film and fucking get excited for it!
Stuart Simpson director of the film is a guest of Monster Fest, and at the World Premiere of the film he will be on hand with writer Addison Heath, along with cast and crew for a Q & A. You wont want to miss this one folks, we are absolutely pumped!
Alright folks, we have two bits of genre news for you here, so let’s get stuck into it!
Much beloved Halloween favourite TRICK ‘R’ TREAT had a hell of a time getting a release, and once it did fans showered it in love. Fans can get excited because a sequel TRICK ‘R’ TREAT 2 is coming!
How do we know? Well director Michael Dougherty made the announcement at a screening of the original film at Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. With the Q & A session he answered the fans questions and confirmed the sequel with a great title card, that […]
BOO! As horror fans, we all like to feel a little scared from time to time. For those of you who panic at the thought of tiny, enclosed spaces then look no further! Monster Fest has a film that will poke at the claustrophobe in all of us. We present to you, ABDUCTEE.
Directed by Yamaguchi Yadai, and starring Jiji Bu (DEAD SUSHI, TOKYO GORE POLICE), ABDUCTEE is one of the most gripping, intense, and challenging thrillers of 2013. After receiving such killer reviews on the ‘net, you’d be mad not to see this one.
Who doesn’t love a good ol’ vampire flick? Well one for actual adults anyway, we all do I am sure. Well MONSTER FEST has you covered for that with a screening of KISS OF THE DAMNED.
This one was written and directed by Xan Cassavetes, yep she is the daughter of John Cassavetes Gena Rowlands, sister to Nick Cassavetes. So you know there is talent naturally in the family, and with this being a big film for her, we’ll get to see if she follows suit with her family. Judging by the positive response to this film, we can gather […]
Folks, we here are big supporters of any horror on the big screen, and it’s great there are groups like Cinemaniacs who this year have been bringing Melbourne screenings of genre sequels. The last in their 2013 program is DAMIEN: OMEN II, and at the home of cult cinema, Cinema Nova!
So before Monster Fest, keep supporting the genre we all love and check this one out.
The screening will take place on Sunday the 10th of November, at the Nova, staring at 6:30pm
Tickets must be pre-booked, they can’t be brought on the night or at the door. So […]
The internet blew up yesterday after Clive Barker made the announcement about a HELLRAISER remake indeed going ahead. Clive stated he was writing the script based on his treatment and that Doug Bradley would return as Pinhead.
Well apparently Doug Bradley had no idea! So Clive may have gotten ahead of himself, Doug took to Facebook (where else) to comment on Clive’s post.
Just arrived in Orlando for Spooky Empire, to be greeted by the news via FearNet and Clive Barkers Facebook that he is writing a new Hellraiser script and intends that I should play Pinhead again.
In quite possibly the strangest and maybe the most awesome news of the week, the much talked about HELLRAISER remake/reboot is in fact going ahead.
However the film is bringing along two very big names involved with the franchise.
Dimension and Weinstein have long been developing this film, and at one point Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer were attached to the project. But now it seems that the right blend for this reboot has been found with Clive Barker and Doug Bradley!
I am not shitting you fiends, the two big important names will be returning, with Clive writing the […]
