This all-encompassing event embraces all aspects of Horror/Chiller entertainment, its serious and lighter sides.

This year the theme is Frankenstein !

Another stunner of an event poster will be finalized in conjunction with Dr-Benway, and revealed soon.

This year will kick off with a Johannesburg leg of the festival and a selection of movies from across the HorrorFest's 8 year existence.

Expect feature films & short films from around the world, with most making their S.A. premiere.

The Makabra Ensemble will breathe new life into a classic silent film with their live soundtrack performance, while the Bloody Parchment chapter focuses on Horror in literature.

Besides the short film- & short story competitions, Halloween dress-up, prizes and give-aways, expect 
the alternative market, link up with the Cape Town Zombie Walk, a Halloween club party + more.
