Melbourne Horror Film Society

September 28, 2010

Better late than never, is every fiend’s cry as they hunt for that last brain/victim/rat/virgin before the dawn.  And so say I, bumping into the spooky Melbourne Horror Film Society so late in 2010’s  shadow.

But there are still films to be seen at 1000 pound bend before the year is out, and a perfectly meritorious idea to get ghoulish in long spring nights.  They have membership details at their website, and a programme of films for 2010.

They also have a facebook page.

Goretastic times ahead!

Two ACMI posts in a row is almost self indulgent, but anyone who has read through this blog would understand that I couldn’t leave this particular event unmentioned!  A season of underground/lesser known horror, grostesquerie and ghoul films alongside some beloved classic schlock to coincide with ACMI’s Tim Burton exhibition in July.
