The IFI Horrorthon (22 – 26 October) returns to celebrate its 18th birthday with five days of horror in the run-up to Halloween. The full schedule is below. This year’s IFI Horrorthon guests include: director Richard Stanley, who will present his two features and some of his rarely shown shorts; scream queen, Bond girl and Hammer regular, Caroline Munro; and producer Sean Hogan and legendary illustrator Kevin O’Neill, who will attend Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD. This year’s IFI Horrorthon Honours will be bestowed on one of cinema’s most iconic figures: Christopher Lee. Tribute will be paid also to the memory of horror maestro Wes Craven with a late-night double bill and a screening of one of his best-known classics. This year’s festival includes 33 features (23 of them Irish premieres) and two shorts programmes.

Individual tickets for the IFI Horrorthon films are on sale now at the IFI Box Office in person, on the phone on 01 679 3477 or online at www.ifi.ie. A new special ticket deal is available this year: 5 films for €40, 10 films for €75. A range of passes ranging from one to five days is also available. Throughout the Festival there will also be a range of special offers for blood-thirsty IFI Horrorthon fans in the IFI Café Bar.
