The Mayhem Film Festival is a cracking few days at Nottingham’s Broadway Cinema. The films which screen at the genre festival are always fresh, exciting and a little bit twisted. I fully expect the 2019 line-up to be more of the same.
Mayhem has started to slowly announce the titles for the festival’s fifteenth year – which runs from10 – 13 October. These first films are Irish supernatural comedy Extra Ordinary, Polish drama Sword of God (The Mute) and US horror Something Else .
Here are the full details straight from Mayhem…
Opening Mayhem’s 15th edition is Irish supernatural comedy Extra Ordinary. In rural Ireland, reluctant medium Rose is called upon to save a local teen from the town’s resident one-hit wonder rock star, who has somewhat satanic plans to bring his career back from the dead. Expect exorcisms galore and plenty of ectoplasm. Mayhem is delighted to welcome special guests from the film for a Q&A after the screening.
Next in this year’s line-up is the UK Premiere of immersive Polish historical drama Sword of God (The Mute). In the early Middle Ages, two Christian knights arrive at a pagan village hidden deep in the mountains. Soon, their faith and the bond between them are brutally tested as events spiral out of control, and many will die in the name of God.
Rounding off the first wave of announcements is the genre-bending Something Else. From directors Jeremy Gardner (cult buddy-movie-zombie-outbreak film The Battery) and Christian Stella comes a completely unique take on the monster movie – a love story. When Hank’s girlfriend vanishes, leaving only a note behind, his sanity begins to slip and something mysterious stirs in the woods that surround his home.
Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 10 –13 October 2019.
