The movie is set in Chile as a group of partiers become trapped in an underground nightclub, but after escaping they realize that their nightmares are only just beginning.
Neil Jordan will also be in attendance, showcasing his return to the vampire genre an adaptation of the play about two female vampires who find shelter in a coastal resort named BYZANTIUM.
Other notable movies include Rob Zombies epic LORDS OF SALEM, parasite contagion shocker THE BAYand the UK premiere of much anticipated horror collaboration THE ABC’S OF DEATH – 3 of the directors of which will be in attendance.
If documentary is your thing then you’ll love AMERICAN SCREAM (the best documentary about Halloween Haunted houses ever) and TV fans are in for a treat as the festival will be screaming all seven episodes of Norway’s answer to Twin Peaks HELLFJORD with the director Patrik Syversen also in attendance.
