Unleash The Terror: The Line-Up For The 2016 MAYHEM FILM FESTIVAL

mayhem-festival-2016

Movies In Focus is a huge admirer of the Mayhem Film Festival. The festival, which is the brain-child of Chris Cooke and Steven Sheil is a great horror-tinged festival held every October at Nottingham’s Broadway Cinema. Each year it manages to feature an impressive mix of films from the quirky to the obscure to the horrific and 2016 continues the trend with yet another tremendous selection of films and events across its four day run (October 13-16th).
