While 13 may be an unlucky number for some, it won’t be for the South African Horror Fest as it celebrates its 13th anniversary.

The 10-day annual Halloween-themed festival will take place from tomorrow to Friday 3 November, with a range of spooky movies and short films from around the world. Including vampires, demons, serial killers, aliens, cannibals, mad men (and women), many of the spine-tingling screening will be making South African premieres.

The venue will remain the Labia Theatre, 68 Orange Street, Gardens.

The festival will open tomorrow with Oscar-nominated director Darrell James Roodt’s new local horror movie Siembamba. He’ll be attending the premiere for an audience Q&A.

Local authors will read from their work and there will be book giveaways on the Bloody Parchment literary night on Thursday.

On Friday Rocky Horror Picture Show fans can do the time warp again with an audience participation screening. The Love Craft Experiment will sell participation packs for those who don’t know what to bring.

The Makabra Ensemble’s customary live soundtrack performance will take place on Saturday for the legendary 1927 Fritz Lang sci-fi classic Metropolis, celebrating its 90th anniversary. The Halloween dress-up competition with prizes is also on this night.

During the festival there will be three feature-length chapters of the Shadow Realm short film collection, which comprises shorts from around the world.

V Tickets cost between R45 and R70 each. Book online at Quicket or call the theatre on 021 424 5927. For more information visit www.horrorfest.info.
