Big Screen Mayhem to Melt the Mind
It’s about blackened cinemas with awe-struck patrons sitting on the edge of their seats. It’s about white knuckles, cold sweats, nervous gasps, gut-wrenching laughs and screams in the dark. It’s about not being able to pause the action for a loo break.
It is dangerous, delirious and delightful. It is about moving with wild abandon into the darkened recesses of cinematic imagination, and doing it with others. It’s about leaving your living room, entering the cinema and daring to live it large with films that are larger than life itself.
MONSTER FEST proudly pits itself as the ultimate celebration of all that is weird & wonderful in the international cult cinema palette.
MONSTER FEST is not your normal film festival. It is “gorgeousness and gorgosity made flesh” – a genre love-in for drooling cinema fiends with a fetish for the fantastic.
What started in November 2011 as the Fantastic Asia Film Festival (FAFF) has miraculously transformed into this larger, more imposing, more aggressive beast called MONSTER FEST. The opportunity to open up FAFF into a monster-sized celebration of genre cinema in all its gruesome glory was just too good an opportunity to miss.
For those of you new here - hi, I'm Sylvia and there is another girl that works here that looks like me. She's the nice one. And Monster Pictures Australia are the fine folks that brought DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK to the people of Australia. They have supported we crazy Canucknuckleheads and continue to do so with their rad.
How rad? Oh, let's just say if you live down under, there are your supplier to seeing AMERICAN MARY and you can do that first at their Monster Fest 2012. Shit yes, son! Follow them here and here to get the latest and the greatest first!
PS WE LOVE YOU MONSTER PICTURES!!!!
