  • IFI Horrorthon

Theatre, Stage & Film

The Irish Film Institute wants to put the frighteners on you with its annual Horrorthon…it’s about as gruelling a marathon as it gets.

Every year, gore-lovers sit in for five days straight (if they are hardcore) feasting on gruesome prosthetics, spooky girls in white dresses and every sort of witch, vampire and zombie you can think of.

The best of international horror is screened in an onslaught of fright nights over Halloween, perfectly timed for mavens of the macabre.

In addition, ever lovers of the element of surprise, the IFI likes to spring a mystery film on its daring visitors for double the shock element…definitely one to steer clear of if you have a weak heart.

If you want to really get in the Halloween spirit, douse yourself in fake blood or ketchup and settle into the comfy seats at the IFI for some deliciously dark and uncomfortable viewing…
