Program Highlights

  • Feature
    From Oscar-winning visual effects artist and filmmaker Phil Tippett, comes his highly anticipated stop-motion extravaganza set in a Milton-esque world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs.
  • Filmmakers John Campopiano and Chris Griffiths dive Mariana-Trench-deep into the making of the Stephen King's IT, the TV mini-series that defined horror for a generation of fans when they were exposed to the sewer-dwelling clown-faced entity known as PENNYWISE for the first time care of ABC's 1990 prime-time programming.
  • Feature
    Courtesy of Studio Canal, Monster Fest is proud to present the World Premiere 4K Restoration of CAT'S EYE, directed by Lewis Teague (CUJO, ALLIGATOR) with a screenplay by the man himself - Stephen King! 
  • When a kick-arse rock band whose members also happen to be martial arts masters decide to take on Miami's seedy underbelly, all bets are off as bullets and blood meet feet and fist in a non-stop all-action extravaganza that has to be seen to be believed. One of the greatest film rediscoveries of the century, MIAMI CONNECTION does for 80s action what THE ROOM did for 2000's melodrama. Miss it at your own peril.
  • Delving into the roots of the relationship between heavy metal music and horror movies, filmmaker Mike Schiff talks to some of the biggest names in both fields and uncovers just how co-dependant these two ecosystems are and why they share such a rabid fanbase.
  • Feature
    Direct from Sundance, Finnish filmmaker Hannah Bergholm's debut feature alternates between the beautiful and the grotesque when a young girl's repressed inner demons project themselves into the primordial goo of a gestating egg.
