We here at Film In Dublin would be big fans of the aul Christmas now, whether it’s catching classics at the Light House or taking the time to look out for those in need around us. Or just eating cheese and crackers by the boxful. But even we can admit that the same old thing, year in, year out every December can occasionally wear a little thin. Enter Horrorthon to cater to those who are bloody tired of the Yuletide grind and are looking for something alternative. The Irish Film Institute and Horrothon will be hosting the screening of Deathcember, a Nollaig-nightmare that looks sure to delight horror fans.
Following this year’s hugely successful edition of the IFI Horrorthon festival, the Institute are offering audiences a seasonal chance to see Deathcember. Crowdfunded on Kickstarter, Deathcember is a film that serves as kind of “cinematic Advent calendar”, an anthology with 24 short films by 24 international genre directors, connected by an animated frame story.
Producers Ivo Scheloske and Dominic Saxl have assembled an impressive roster of international cast and crew featuring familiar horror faces including Ruggero Deodato, Lucky McKee, Polyanna McIntosh, Julian Richards, Barbara Crampton, Richard Glover, Irish actor Johnny Vivash, and more.
Covering a wide range of genres and styles, from animation to splatter and all points between, it looks like the ideal Christmas treat for horror fans! The film is set to screen on Monday 16th December at 8.10pm, and you can check out a trailer below.
Tickets are available now from the IFI website and their box office.
