The films in this session are thematic - each film explores the theme of 'horror' in a different way though animation or visual effects. The films range from psychological horror through to the 'human condition' of mortality, through to basic fears of spiders, insects or ghosts.

Start is 6pm and the screenings play from 6:30pm - 8:00pm approximately with an intermission. The venue is then open until later.
