Monster Fest Travelling Sideshow / 15 February 2018

New Film Announced & Multi-Pass Ticketing for MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW!

In the week since our first wave programming announcement for MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW at Event Cinemas George St, we’ve had a flood of enquiries as to when our 5 Film Multi-Pass & VIP Pass tickets would be on sale. The simple answer is NOW!

The 5 Film Multi-Pass will set you back $82.50 or $71.50 for concessions while a VIP Pass to all 10 films at our three-day festival costs $132 or $110 for concessions!

Now for some programming news, we are ecstatic to bring you the Australian Premiere of the painstakingly restored George A. Romero classic, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD in 4K! Scanned from the original camera negative and supervised by Romero himself before his untimely passing last year, this incredible restoration has been described by Romero himself as “the definitive version of the film”.

Shot outside of Pittsburgh at a fraction of the cost of a Hollywood feature by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, George A. Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is one of the great stories of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time.

After decades of poor-quality prints and video transfers, Night of the Living Dead can finally be seen for the immaculately crafted film that it is thanks to a new 4K restoration, scanned from the original camera negative and supervised by Romero himself. Stark, haunting, and more relevant than ever, Night of the Living Dead is back.

A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of flesh-eating ghouls newly arisen from their graves, Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-sixties America (literally) tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in the lead role.
