Weng Weng is small. Andrew Leavold is much bigger, but has a small Weng Weng on his arm. Confused? Nothing is straightforward when you enter the world of Filipino exploitation cinema. Weng Weng, the diminutive star of classic z-grade James Bond rip offs For Y’ur Height Only and The Impossible Kid became an obsession for Leavold, and it’s easy to understand why, karate kicking baddies in the kneecaps, jumping out of tall buildings with only a handkerchief for a parachute, whilst fearlessly snaring bad guys and getting the girl, Weng Weng is a man for […]
Oh yes that’s right folks – to celebrate the DVD release of one of the coolest local genre flicks you’re ever likely to see, Monster Pictures, JB Hi Fi and Cinema Nova have organised for the star of the show, JOHN JARRATT to fly into Melbourne town for a once-off screening!
With WOLF CREEK 2 only weeks away from shooting, and with Tarantino’s DJANGO UNCHAINED about to grace our screens, and with BAD BEHAVIOUR about to rocket its way into stores, this is your big chance to come and share the air with Aussie movie royalty!
We’ve recently received the word that Larry Cohen will not be able to make the trip down under due to ill health – Eoin Macken (THE INSIDE) has also had to cancel due to a clash with his work commitments.
This is obviously very sad news for Monster Fest, particularly so considering the news that Larry is unwell.
The ticket prices for THE STUFF, MANIAC COP and THE INSIDE have been reduced to regular session prices ($14.00 concession/$18.00 full).
For those who have already purchased tickets we will personally contact you with some value add to make you smile again.[…]
Okay Monsterites – In the few years that we’ve been up and running, we’ve observed a couple of things about the average Monster fan… One, is that you LOVE the work of UK based poster genius Tom Hodge, of ‘The Dude Designs’ (Father’s Day, Monster Fest, Dear God No, Hobo With a Shotgun, Innkeepers, etc), and another is that you LOVE just about everything to do with BOOBIES!
Well here’s some very exciting news for boobie loving Tom Hodge fans – Tom has recently created an incredible Halloween Special, Video Nasty poster design (pictured below) in celebration of all things […]

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE THE MONSTER QUEEN??
A Monster Queen is a vixen who lives, breathes and […]
Here’s something to tickle the fancy of just every horror fan alive. Richard Bates Jr’s EXCISION had it’s first press screening in the UK yesterday. Now as you can imagine, these press screenings can be a nerve wracking time for anyone involved in the distribution of a film. One rotten fart amongst the crowd could be enough to set off a chain reaction of disapproval which will eventually see its way onto the critics page, spelling disaster for the film.
