Saturday 28 October 2017 at the South African Horrorfest 
9:30pm, Labia Theatre, 68 Orange Street, Gardens, Cape Town

In this incredible futuristic vision (of 1927), the vast city of Metropolis has the suffering working class live, work and struggle
underground, while the privileged bask high up in their towers. But the son of the city's mastermind falls in love with a
working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences (but it won't come without chaos and destruction!)
With fantastic sets and amazing cinematography, this film was decades ahead of its time, still resonating today - here on
28 October enhanced with a live original soundtrack at the South African HorrorFest.

Resident Makabra members Sonja Ruppersberg, Simon RatcliffeMatthijs Van Dijk , Sean Ou Tim and Paul Andre Blom will be joined by special guest Ronnie Belcher (of The Damned Crows & Terminatryx)

This will be in conjunction with the well-established HorrorFest Halloween dress-up event, prizes of which will include
R6,000 worth of tattoo prizes from Mr Lucky Tattoos, Cape Town.

South African HorrorFest


ABOUT THE SOUTH AFRICAN HORRORFEST
In 2004 Paul Blom and Sonja Ruppersberg decided to rectify the issue of the absence of a dedicated Horror event in South Africa.
The first S.A. HorrorFest (then also known as the Horror Festacular) launched in 2005.
Besides being a Horror / Chiller / Thriller film festival (screening feature films and short films from around the world),
from the start it made a point of expanding into a broad Halloween event by incorporating
new live soundtrack performances to classic silent films by The Makabra Ensemble,
the Bloody Parchment literary chapter, Halloween dress-up competition, a night market and more.
