The 13-hour trauma marathon includes five UK premieres and the world premiere of Ross Noble’s directorial debut. Shocktoberfest is here!

Next in the panic-stricken line-up is the UK Premiere of “Don’t Hang Up” where an evening of prank calls puts two millennials in deadly peril when one recipient decides to fight back. After that comes the UK Premiere of “Cold Moon”, a chilling tale of supernatural vengeance from the dark imagination of Michael McDowell, esteemed writer of Beetlejuice and The Nightmare before Christmas. Then it’s time for a proper Halloween trick or treat with the UK Premiere of “Fear Inc”, about a sinister company promising to bring all your personal nightmares to life. At 8.30pm comes the UK Premiere of “Rupture” in which The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace is kidnapped and tortured to an extreme limit into another frightening realm altogether. Lastly, it’s the non-stop violent action movie currently wowing fantasy festivals all over the world, The Mo Brothers’ “Headshot” starring Iko Uwais from The Raid franchise as an amnesiac trying to regain memories about his sadistic and extraordinary past.
