Following two sold out screenings at Monster Fest in Melbourne last November, where it took out the ‘Golden Monster’ for Best Film, we are pleased to present in association with Umbrella Films ONE NIGHT ONLY screenings of LORDS OF CHAOS on Friday February 22nd in cinemas across Australia & New Zealand.

Set in the world of Norwegian black metal, and combining an 80s/90s period setting, the blackest of black humour and brutally visceral scenes of violence, LORDS OF CHOAS is ‘metal’ in every sense of the word – and an experience you’re sure to never forget. The only thing crazier than the film itself is the fact it’s based on the very real – and very violent – actions of an infamous Norwegian black metal crew. Drawing from his experience as the drummer in a black metal band, director Jonas Åkerlund brings a level of authenticity to the screen rarely seen along with the unmistakable style that made his music video work so memorable.

When Gilda accidentally discovers a secret from Borges, a powerful congressman and the Club’s leader, her and her husband’s lives are in grave danger.

The smartly satirical and  undeniably jaw-dropping Cannibal Club premieres in theaters and On Demand in March.

After sending shockwaves across contemporary culture and setting a new standard for provocative, socially-conscious horror films with his directorial debut, Get Out, Academy Award®-winning visionary Jordan Peele returns with another original nightmare that he has written, directed and produced.

Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway.

Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.

After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

Writer and director Peele produces for his Monkeypaw Productions alongside Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, and Monkeypaw’s Ian Cooper. Us will be released by Universal Pictures in 2019.

The original Happy Death Day was one of the surprise hits of 2017, now the franchise continues with Happy Death Day 2U which is due to hit cinemas on Valentines Day.

Directed by Christopher Landon (Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse, Happy Death Day) and once again starring Jessica Rothe (La La Land, Valley Girl) we are already counting down the days.

The Harrowing, from director Jon Keeyes (American Nightmare) and starring genre icons Michael Ironside (Total Recall, Starship Troopers) and Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy, G.I Joe : The Rise of Cobra), premieres on VOD Christmas day from Film Mode Entertainment.

Haunted by the  ritualistic  killing  of  his  best  friend,  a  vice  detective (Matthew Tompkins, Sicario)  determined  to discover  the  truth  goes  undercover  into  a  forensic  hospital  and  is  plunged  into  his  own personal  hell  where  demons  might  be  real.

Jon Keeyes, writer and director of the film, says “We’ve carefully crafted an intelligent, suspenseful, tense thriller that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats while driving them down a road of psychological twists and turns. Right out of the gate, we pull them in with an explosive opening sequence, and then keep them guessing as the mystery unfolds until we blow their minds in the final moments. Being able to construct such an intricate puzzle like this – that is both entertaining and thought provoking – has been a joy.”

Matthew Tompkins, Producer: “The Harrowing is carefully constructed to be a powerful synergy of elements that make it one of those rare ‘elevated’ genre films with true crossover appeal to a wide variety of hardcore fans…The film is a potent mix of horror and supernatural elements that underpin a very smart, disturbing, and complicated psychological thriller…the idea of being able to drive the narrative utilizing all of these things, to truly pull that off, from both a commercial and artistic perspective, was a fantastic opportunity for us as Filmmakers.”

In addition to Ironside, Vosloo and Tompkins, the dynamic ensemble cast also includes ‘’The Haunting of Hill House’’’s Arianne Martin and Damon Carney (Hellraiser : Judgement).

The first clip from Terror Tales, the highly-anticipated new horror anthology from writer-director Jimmy Lee Combs and High Octane Pictures, has been released ahead of the 1/8 On Demand release.

The film, which brings together cast from Friday the 13th, Maniac Cop 1 & 2, George Romero’s The Crazies, Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs, Sleepaway Camp,Critters 2 and other horror classics, stars Lynn Lowry, Ari Lehmann, Felissa Rose, Laurene Landon, Jennifer Runyon and more!

When Michael wakes up he is horrified to find that he is riding shotgun with a psychopath (Christopher Showerman, “Supergirl”) who reveals to him that his wife and daughter are held captive in the attached cargo trailer. The trailer is rigged to release a deadly toxin when triggered by a switch in the car. Thinking of his family’s safety, he cooperates with everything the psychotic driver asks him to do even if it means breaking the law.
During this bizarre ride, the driver subjects Michael to three horrific tales of the macabre including a demon that takes a mother (Lynn Lowry, “Shivers”) on a journey of self-discovery and reveals to her the horrifying truth behind her son’s suicide. The next tale transpires in the ’80s where a Detective is hot on the trail of a serial killer known as The Sledgehammer (Jonathan Tiersten, “Sleepaway Camp”) who is terrorizing a video store owner and his wife. In the final tale, an evil deity (Yan Birch, “Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs”) is using the human body as a host to possess its victims. When the deity destroys one victim it jumps to another causing an epidemic of possessions being reported.
With a burning desire for the truth behind his abduction and the safety of his family, will Michael have the will to survive the madness? Your sanity will be tried and tested in Terror Tales.

Laurene Landon (Maniac Cop), Jennifer Runyon (Ghostbusters), Ari Lehmann (Friday the 13th), Ashley Park (“Rosewood”), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), and Helen Udy (The Dead Zone) also star.
