Let The Mayhem Begin: Movies In Focus To Attend The MAYHEM FILM FESTIVAL

mayhem-film-festival-2015

Over the last few years Movies In Focus has covered Nottingham’s Mayhem Film Festival at Broadway Cinema – but this year I’m going in all-guns-blazing. I’m going to try and cover as much of the horror film festival as humanly possible over the four day event (Thursday 15 October Sunday 18th October) — and I hope you can join me.

The line-up this year is particularly great (check it out in full below). Movies In Focus is particularly looking forward to:

Future Shock! The Story Of 2000AD
Rabid Dogs
Howl and Q&A with Paul Hyett (check out a review of Howl)
The Unquenchable Thirst Of Dracula – Live (a Hammer Script reading!)
He Never Died
Scary Shorts
The Witch
The Invitation
