We are delighted to welcome audiences to this year’s IFI Horrorthon and a weekend celebrating all that is best in horror. It is a particular pleasure after recent years to be able to do so together, as horror is most definitely best enjoyed as a communal experience, in a cinema full of fellow fans. This year’s selection includes films from locations as far-flung as Thailand and Mexico, as well as the opening film of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and new 4K restorations of some of the best films by the legendary Dario Argento. We very much look forward to sharing this year’s films with you.
It’s here! We could not be happier to welcome you back to our Eustace Street home for 2021’s IFI Horrorthon, which will take place both in-cinema and online on IFI@Home.

Visceral Australian slasher The Slaughterhouse Killer tells the story of Box (Craig Ingham), whose passion for slaughter is hard to curb at his job in the local abattoir. When young parolee Nathan (James Mason) joins him at the slaughterhouse, the two urge each other on to brutal consequences.
The premiere screening of Stanford Prison Experiment-inspired Like Dogs sees a behavioural experiment treating humans like animals go wrong, with dire consequences for two recent college grads.

An Alternative Evening of Light Entertainment on Valentines Eve
with Restive Nation and Witchkicker
Dublin based Lugosi formed in 2016 consisting of JM Burr and Jimmy Rooney (of the band the Reverend JM’s panic worship), film maker and former Hungry Souls guitarist Alan Morton, and Neal Wright, formerly of Belfast’s Memento Mori. Lugosi are a Dublin based alternative rock band, fusing the styles of punk and stoner music with an engaging performance style and lyrics permeated by a singular humour.
With influences ranging from Misfits, Black Sabbath, Fu Manchu and Clutch, coupled with a love of the macabre, Lugosi’s original songs range in subject matter from alien vampires, American Indian legends, horror and witchcraft. A sonic Ed Wood movie, delivered through the medium of rock ‘n’ roll.
Restive Nation are a three-piece electronic rock band from Dublin. Their unique blend of organic and synthetic sounds makes for an extremely textured listening experience. Their style reaches from many influences of industrial, trip hop and electronic genres. Although many of their current works are instrumental, various singers join the line-up for certain songs.
Chris is in charge of synths and production. His background in electronic dance music and sound design helps provide the band with some intense and atmospheric noises. Timmy is on bass. Having been around on the Irish music scene as a past member of diverse bands such as Lotus Eater and Rhiannon and the Face Collectors, he brings the various styles he has cultivated from such groups to add some unique low end to the Restive Nation sound. Kevin on drums, has played with several bands on the Irish scene including Lace Weeper, Franko Franko and 21 Outs with a keen interest in several styles such as indie, electro, prog rock, jazz and ambient.
Witchkicker are an all-female metal quartet based in Dublin. Inspired by the likes of Deftones, Rush, Gojira and Kings X… and ABBA.

Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.
To celebrate the release of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, in Irish cinemas on October 31st, we have teamed up with Warner Bros. Pictures to send you an a guest to a special preview screening at the Light House Cinema on the 30th of October at 6.30pm.
Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.
Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.
Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep stars Ewan McGregor (“Star Wars: Episodes I, II & III,” “T2 Trainspotting”) as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “The Greatest Showman”) as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra. The main ensemble cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.
Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.
Flanagan’s behind-the-scene creative team was led by director of photography Michael Fimognari (“The Haunting of Hill House”), production designers Maher Ahmad (“Get Hard”) and Elizabeth Boller (“Hush”), and costume designer Terry Anderson (“Den of Thieves”). The music score is composed by The Newton Brothers (“The Haunting of Hill House”).
