Festival Highlights

THE SHINING FORWARDS AND BACKWARDS forces you to engage with the film on levels you wouldn’t otherwise. It really works best if you’ve seen the movie a bunch because it allows you deeper context but also because it forces you to watch the movie with a freshness you likely left behind a dozen viewings ago.

From Troma Studios, RETURN TO NUKE’EM HIGH, directed by Lloyd Kaufman, follows a young couple up against the school glee club. Unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a gang called The Cretins. When the other students begin to undergo mutations, our couple must solve the mystery and save Tromaville High School.

The world premiere of FACE, directed by Taka Arai and Norith Soth. What caused the gruesome aftermath at the Delta Chi Kappa Sorority house on the night of October 31, 2012? This footage is leaked police evidence you are not supposed to watch. It reveals a chain reaction of the most appalling acts ever committed by college kids in American history.

International Horror
ANOTHER HOLE IN THE HEAD #10 is proud to continue showcasing all the best horror from home and abroad. The programmers of ANOTHER HOLE IN THE HEAD toured the world to find the best indie horror this planet has to offer.

From Germany, we have ON AIR, directed by Carsten Vauth and Marco J Riedl. A family dad runs the pirate radio ‘Nighthawk’ from the basement of his house. Every Saturday night he goes ‘On Air’ as Doc Rock. Unexpectedly a serial killer, the Nightslasher, calls in on his show, and now…Doc has to stop him from killing his next victim. The struggle for survival is ON…AIR!!!

Mark Heartley directs PATRICK, from Austalia. Patrick lays comatose in a small private hospital, his only action being his involuntary spitting. When a pretty young nurse, just separated from her husband, begins work at the hospital, she senses that Patrick is communicating with her, and he seems to be using his psychic powers to manipulate events in her life.

PIN UP DOLLS ON ICE, directed by Geoff Klein and Melissa Mira, comes to us from Canada. When an old friend hires The PIN up Dolls to put on a show at a secluded campground, the girls find themselves being stalked by a homicidal maniac with a sick obsession with ice. As they’re hunted one-by-one, they soon realize they’ll have to rely on more than just their looks to survive this nightmare named Moe.
