Hitting cinemas once again this November, Monster Fest is a celebration of all that is weird and wonderful in the international cult cinema palette.
The SWITCH team has gathered together the best of the best of this year's festival and collected them together in one convenient place - so check out our reviews below, and make sure you check back as we add more throughout the event!
A film for people who laugh when they see somebody walk into a glass door, then laugh even harder when they notice that the person got a bloody nose. A delightful and unexpected highlight.
At its best, the film is alive with light humour and a clumsy romance. But it's too uneven - with a wonky tone, hit-and-miss jokes and annoying acting - to be anything more than merely ordinary.
It doesn’t sport as many laughs as you'd want for this ridiculous story, nor is it dark enough to be a true horror, but it’s still a fun, thrilling, wicked romp through a blood-soaked mansion.
Aside from boasting gruesome gore effects, it also has impressive acting from its female leads and some thoughtful twists to its premise that elevate it above the masses of low-budget horror flicks.
More than just a fast-paced, 88-minute horror-comedy, first-time director Chelsea Stardust demonstrates that some of the most exciting work in the horror field is being done by female directors.
This shambling revenant of a film is something that might only be appreciated by the most indiscriminate midnight-movie crowd and diehard fans of the series.
After flicking through every page and watching the eerie stories brought to life by 11 talented Australian female filmmakers, you'll quickly decide on your own favourites and be left wanting more.
A slickly directed, spooky and surprisingly empathetic film about the monsters that dwell in the human mind.
