“If this one doesn’t scare you, you’re already dead!” Phantasm (1979)
The spooky festival gives fans a chance to be part of a good old Americano ‘Drive-in Movie’ horror scene. Huddle up on a bench seat with your lover or friends, tune in your car radio and enjoy classic movies like Nightmare on Elm Street, freshly released Jigsaw, Annabelle’s Creation, IT 2017, Happy Death Day and some premieres of local scares.
Creative Director Julian Bartram says “we don’t want to give too much away but be prepared to crawl under beds and climb through broken down cars if you want to survive.“ You can get lost in the haunted 3D Maze, which is themed with the movie on the night, its been custom created and filled with over thirty actors, hiding within the interactive movie sets.
With BODY FX NZ’s premier FX makeup/special effects experts on board, all your darkest nightmares will follow you in the flesh.
This is not for the fainthearted, so choose wisely. Of course, Hell Pizza will be providing the ghoulish food delivered by Hell-raising zombies, while the event runs for a week until the 4th of November.
For a date night to remember or something you and your mates will talk about for literally years to come, grab your tickets now and have a bloody good time. If horror and scares are your thing, then the festival will have you on the edge of your seat. This event is strictly R18 and limited to 300 double passes, so you better be quick and secure your place at the festival.
