The Duke St Workshop who will open the festival with a live performance of Tales of HP Lovecraft featuring cult horror actor Laurence R. Harvey (Human Centipede II and III) and Steve Barker, who will be presenting his new film The ReZort on the Friday evening. Other guests throughout the weekend will include British director Gareth Tunley for a screening of The Ghoul; Billy O’Brien for I Am Not A Serial Killer; and festival favourites Astron-6; Directors Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski, as well as producer Casey Walker will close the festival with a screening of their latest film The Void.

The programme also includes Italy’s They Call Me Jeeg Robot and the UK Premiere of Headshot from Indonesia’s Mo Brothers, as well as preview screenings of Julia Ducournau’s remarkable debut and Cannes-hit, Raw; Emiliano Rocha Minter’s “fairy tale for adults” We Are The Flesh; hilarious horror-comedy Don’t Kill It from the director of Big Assed Spider (starring Dolph Lundgren);and Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s latest film, Creepy, about a criminal psychologist and his suspicious neighbours. From the archives, Mayhem will screen Mario Bava’s Planet of the Vampires, which has been restored and remastered under the supervision of Nicolas Winding Refn, as well as H.G. Lewis’s Blood Feast.
