Nightmare On Elm Street

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

Monday 26 October
8:30pm

Both the international film industry and global horror community was shocked by the news of director Wes Craven's untimely death. It is only fitting that we pay tribute to him at a specially added extra night (Mon 26 Oct) to open the 2015 South African Horrorfest with a free screening of one of our favourites from his wide catalog (of highly memorable and thrilling movies) ­ the first NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET! It is not only the birth of Freddy Krueger, but also one of Johnny Depp's first movies! This classic film (with its charismatic burnt, black-humoured knife-gloved killer tormenting kids in their dreams) recently had its 30th anniversary.

Seats are limited - to secure yours, e­mail us at SAhorrorfest@gmail.com with Nightmare On Elm Street in the subject, and tell us why you love Craven's movies.

Directed by Wes Craven
Starring Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, John Saxon, Johnny Depp

FILMMAKERS ATTENDING
(A SPECIAL 2015 SA HORRORFEST ADDITION)


Saturday 7 November
8:30pm

Ticket Link

We're very happy to announce that we're fortunate enough to have the makers of all 6 RESIDENT EVIL films on hand to attend the screening of the original classic (that helped resurrect the zombie genre - and create one of cinema's most enduring kick-ass action leading ladies).  
They are currently in SA shooting the 6th and final chapter to this successful epic Action / Horror / Sci-Fi franchise.

Based on the video game, the RESIDENT EVIL films have taken on a life of its own.
With the final chapter set to come full circle, the filmmakers (including attending director / producer Paul W.S. Anderson and his production partner Jeremy Bolt), they decided it would be very apt to go back to its origins for this special HorrorFest screening, with the movie that started it all.
Many may not have had the opportunity to see this first film in cinemas, so now's your chance (plus you'll be able to ask the filmmakers some questions regarding this amazing universe they created!) - Seats are limited, so don't snooze!

RESIDENT EVIL's genesis follows amnesiac heroine Alice (played by Milla Jovovich) and a group of Umbrella Corporation commandos as they attempt to contain the outbreak of the T-virus at a secret underground facility, facing a miriad of zombies and new & gruesome biological creations.
It also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Eric Mabius and Martin Crewes.  Features music by Marilyn Manson and Marco Beltrami.

Not to be missed!

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.
