Celluloid Screams 2014: More Of Those Creepy Kiwis, A Monster Romance, And Retro Royalty Highlight Full Roster
It comes as no surprise that New Zealand horror flicks Housebound and What We Do In The Shadows will play there. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead's monster romance Spring will be making the trip across the pond. Screamers (I don't know what you call yourselves, audience, so I am dubbing you that) will also get to see Hollywood starlet horror Starry Eyes, horror comedy Suburban Gothic, and horror flick Creep out of the U.S.
The festival will also roll out Australian psychotic thriller Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla, a film about an ice cream truck driver's infatuation with a soap opera star. And from around the world, 26 directors created short films for a little anthology called ABCs of Death 2. The festival will close with Tommy Wirkola's Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead. There will also be a secret film, yet to be announced.
And about that retro royalty? The lineup includes a screening of Stuart Gordon's Dagon and Brian Yuzna is in town as Celluloid Screams' Guest of Honour. He will introduce a special screening of his 1989 film Society and participate in a Q&A afterwards. And during the CELLULOID SCREAMS ALLNIGHTER II: SCI-FI SHOCKS Yunza will introduce his Bride of Re-Animator. The allnighter will also feature Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive, Fred Dekker's Night of the Creeps and Stephen Chiodo's Killer Klown's From Outer Space!
Again, those dates: October 24-26. More information is available at the official site.
