As they gear up for this year's lucky 13th edition, the Mayhem Film Festival in Nottingham, UK, have just announced the first three titles on their lineup. First there is a little home grown effort from Benjamin Barfoot called Double Date. This looks to be Barfoot's feature film debut. The festival has also added the mockumentary Top Knot Detective from Oz.
And this is very cool. For their 13th edition the festival will have a retro screening of Friday the 13th Part 3: 3D on Friday the 13th! Surely the darkest of stars have aligned for the festival this year.
Just going by these three titles alone it looks like they are going to have to call in extra sheriffs that weekend. Huh? Yeah? Fine. I'll put myself in the corner for a time out, thank you very much.
Mayhem Film Festival announces DOUBLE DATE, TOP KNOT DETECTIVE and FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3: 3D
With its 13th edition fast approaching, Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the first three titles from its 2017 programme.
The festival will open with a preview screening of Benjamin Barfoot’s Double Date, which will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast and crew. Double Date follows mild-mannered innocent Jim as he attempts to lose his virginity on the eve of his 30th birthday; but the beautiful sisters he and his friend Alex have met for the night, may have darker plans in mind. Guests for this event will be announced later in the summer.
Also on the line-up is the utterly hilarious Top Knot Detective, an Australian mockumentary about a 90s Japanese samurai/detective series known in Japan as ‘Ronin Suiri Tentai’ (‘Deductive Reasoning Ronin’) but known in Australia as ‘Top Knot Detective’. Battling ninjas, monsters, outrageous behaviour, and killer lines, it has it all and is not to be missed!
Wrapping up Mayhem’s first round of announcements, the festival will screen Friday the 13th Part III: 3D, on Friday 13 October, for its 13th edition – an evening with Jason by Crystal Lake, not for the superstitious.
More events, films and guests for Mayhem 2017 will be announced later in the summer.
Mayhem Film Festival will take place at the Broadway Cinema in Nottingham from October 12th through 15th.
