When every waking day is scary, the Horrorthon ain’t just for Halloween folks. The Irish Film Institute’s curation of the creepy and crawly, the Horrorthon will be offering a special selection of scares this Valentine’s Day to get your heart pumping and your pulse racing, all available to stream on IFI@Home.
The Bleeding Hearts selection will be available to stream on the IFI’s platform in time for Valentine’s Day (that’s Sunday 14th February if you really don’t want to, or have been studiously trying to, forget), with the films going live the morning of this Friday the 12th. A specially collected quadruple of films, My Bloody Horrorthon have themed this programme around horror that explores that loving feeling. Per IFI@Home:
Butterflies in the stomach, trembling, sweating, a dry mouth, and a beating heart – love, or fear? At this time of year that proves romantic to some and horrifying to others, the IFI is delighted to partner with Horrorthon in presenting a selection of new films that explore the darker side of meeting a special someone. Across these films can be seen homicidal rage, mistrust, and resentment, all occasional hallmarks of any relationship, whether coming from a warped psychological experiment, an exciting German addition to the zombie canon, a grim slice of Australian mayhem, or one of the year’s most intriguing horror films. These are films to see while curled up with your nearest and dearest – just watch your back.
Each film is available to rent for €6.99, with a four-film bundle also available for €24.99. Featuring films from Australia, Germany and the US, its an international array of all-new nightmares sure to delight the horror fan in your life.
