The Gold Coast Film Festival will unleash its own version of ‘Fright Night’ when it hosts the Australian premiere of a bloody survival thriller in the spine-tingling dark of Springbrook.
Dubbed ‘Horror in the Hinterland’, the one-off event on Saturday 13 April will see a horde of brave film fans make their way up a dark, winding road to a pop up cinema surrounded by trees for a movie experience like no other.
A highlight of the festival, which runs from April 3-14, the 18-plus event will begin with the premiere of The Furies, the debut feature of writer/director Tony D’Aquino that has been described as “reinventing the old school slasher movie”.
With the film’s creators and selected cast in attendance, it will be followed by a screening of the 2012 twisted slasher flick Cabin in the Woods.
Guests are invited to bring a rug or foldable chair, with some beanbags available, while food and drink will be available to purchase. There will be free on-site parking, return bus transfers from Nerang Train Station for $15 and Springbrook also has many accommodation options from budget to hinterland luxe.
Horror in the Hinterland is one of more than 100 films, panels, parties and events that will be held during the Gold Coast Film Festival from April 3-14.
