Premeire Performance - One Show Only!

In this visually stunning classic 1932 French-German film, Allan Grey (a student of the occult) enters the village of Courtempierre. It is under the curse of a vampire and he is drawn into a surreal experience as the elements of the evil vampire and the victims under its spell unfold.
VAMPYR is less known than other fan favourites (like Nosferatu or Cabinet Of Dr Caligari), but is a fantastic film in its own right, and has to be experienced. It utilizes great cameras techniques and atmosphere to tell an intriguing tale of supernatural horror.
The film is enhanced by a new original Makabra Ensemble soundtrack, performed live beneath the big screen.

Resident Makabra Ensemble members Sonja Ruppersberg, Simon RatcliffMatthijs Van Dijk  and Paul Andre Blom will be joined by special guest musicians Ronnie Belcher (of The Damned Crows & Terminatryx) and Nerine Dorman (A Murder). 

This will also be the customary HorrorFest Halloween dress-up event and the HorrorFest market will be outside the theatre from noon until 9pm.

Over time, the tumour manifests itself as the dark and demented version of a stranger. As Helen’s emotional and psychological state begins to deteriorate further and further, she begins to act out in psychotic episodes that are influenced by her evil twin – making her a danger to herself and her best friend, Molly.

It’s only a matter of time before the evil side of Helen will take over completely.

South African HorrorFest


ABOUT THE SOUTH AFRICAN HORRORFEST
In 2004 Paul Blom and Sonja Ruppersberg decided to rectify the issue of the absence of a dedicated Horror event in South Africa.
The first S.A. HorrorFest (then also known as the Horror Festacular) launched in 2005.
Besides being a Horror / Chiller / Thriller film festival (screening feature films and short films from around the world),
from the start it made a point of expanding into a broad Halloween event by incorporating
new live soundtrack performances to classic silent films by The Makabra Ensemble,
the Bloody Parchment literary chapter, Halloween dress-up competition, a night market and more.
