Mayhem Film Festival announces BOYS FROM COUNTY HELL, PSYCHO GOREMAN, THE OAK ROOM and the ever popular SHORT FILM SHOWCASE for physical screenings
The opening film is Irish horror-comedy BOYS FROM COUNTY HELL, which sees the residents of a sleepy Irish village (whose claim to fame is the dubious legend that Bram Stoker once spent a night in the local pub where he was inspired to write ‘Dracula’) in a fight for survival as they discover there may be more to the myth of a local bloodsucking creature than they thought. From the producers of last year’s Mayhem Film Festival favourite Extra Ordinary, Boys from County Hell promises to be another raucous Mayhem crowd-pleaser.
We also can’t wait to bring you PSYCHO GOREMAN, from the director of Mayhem favourites Manborg, Bio-Cop and The Void Steve Kostanski (formally of Astron-6). When siblings Mimi and Luke unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord using a magical amulet, they force the monster to obey their childish whims, and accidentally attract a rogues' gallery of intergalactic assassins to small-town suburbia. Called “the craziest, bloodiest horror-movie of 2020” by Bloody Disgusting, we can’t wait to screen this journey into madness.
Rounding off this year’s programme is the return of our ever-popular SHORT FILM SHOWCASE (titles to be announced soon) and the closing film THE OAK ROOM, a violent Canadian story of mistaken identity and double crosses starring Breaking Bad’s RJ Mitte. During a raging snowstorm, a drifter returns home to the blue-collar bar located in the remote Canadian town where he was born. When he offers to settle an old debt with a grizzled bartender (Peter Outerbridge - Nikita, Orphan Black) by telling him a story, the night’s events quickly spins out of control.
Mayhem Film Festival: Skeleton Edition will be held at Broadway Cinema, Nottingham with physical screenings between Thursday 15 October – Sunday 18 October.
