Don’t go down to the basement, make sure your car has enough petrol and be wary of any mysterious video tapes—– It’s Trespass’ Horror Week.
We all enjoy a scare once in a while don’t we? And inspired by – yes, you guessed it – that pumpkin loving holiday Halloween, we have put together a theme week which examines the scary, creepy, disturbing and macabre.
The festival from which Halloween as we know it comes, originated as a celebration that marked the beginning of the darker part of the year… which may explain why Halloween has little relevance to us Southern Hemispherians. But who doesn’t love an excuse to dress up, watch scary movies and eat lollies? As Christians around the world forget the Pagan roots of Halloween and dress up for trick or treating, we will be exploring the dark dungeons of horror and all things horror related, from horrific beauty mistakes to haunted South African castles.
Our Film team have scared themselves witless looking at horror films past and present, with a specific focus on home-grown talent. A collaborative piece takes a personal look at horror, with contributors revealing the Film and TV characters that have scared them most. Guest contributor, Matthew Pejkovic will be discussing the horror classic, The Exorcist- stating his argument as to why it is still the greatest horror film of all time.
We’ll trespass with Sean Byrne, director of soon-to -be -released Aussie horror, The Loved Ones and we’ll look at how you can help make an Australian horror movie with the unique Redd Inc. project. Film reviewer Glenn Dunks will be providing a list of essential Halloween viewing, and we have some petrifyingly awesome film giveaways to look out for.
Victoria Hughes discusses the diversity and uniqueness of our fears, and there’ll also be a piece on Vampires, but just a word of warning – it won’t be for the Twi-hearted.
So, get ready to sleep with the nightlight on as we take you into the world of killer clowns, rampaging cannibals and haunted houses – Welcome to Horror Week…mwaaaaaaahahaha!
