Mayhem Film Festival: Skeleton Edition

Mayhem Film Festival showcases the best in horror, sci-fi and cult cinema, through feature films, short films and special events each October at Broadway cinema. This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic ​​​​Skeleton Mayhem will be a much smaller edition than in previous years, but it will keep the essence of what Mayhem is about.

Boys from County Hell, Psycho Goreman, The Oak Room and the ever popular Short Film Showcase are the physical screenings that have been announced for this year's edition of the festival.

The opening film is Irish horror-comedy Boys from County Hell, which sees the residents of a sleepy Irish village (whose claim to fame is the dubious legend that Bram Stoker once spent a night in the local pub where he was inspired to write ‘Dracula’)  in a fight for survival as they discover there may be more to the myth of a local bloodsucking creature than they thought. From the producers of last year’s Mayhem Film Festival favourite Extra Ordinary, Boys from County Hell promises to be another raucous Mayhem crowd-pleaser.

Also being screened this year is Psycho Goreman, from the director of Mayhem favourites Manborg, Bio-Cop and The Void Steve Kostanski (formally of Astron-6). When siblings Mimi and Luke unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord using a magical amulet, they force the monster to obey their childish whims, and accidentally attract a rogues' gallery of intergalactic assassins to small-town suburbia. Called “the craziest, bloodiest horror-movie of 2020” by Bloody Disgusting, we can’t wait to screen this journey into madness.

Rounding off this year’s programme is the return of the ever-popular Short Film Showcase (titles to be announced soon) and the closing film The Oak Room, a violent Canadian story of mistaken identity and double crosses starring Breaking Bad’s RJ Mitte. During a raging snowstorm, a drifter returns home to the blue-collar bar located in the remote Canadian town where he was born. When he offers to settle an old debt with a grizzled bartender (Peter Outerbridge - NikitaOrphan Black) by telling him a story, the night’s events quickly spins out of control.
