Horrorant Film Festival: Athens Painted in Blood

tombville-2-750x500With the gates of hell open, anything can happen. Psycho killers, wanton cheerleaders, zombies thirsty for flesh, and TAZ with a saw, all take part in the 1st International Horror Film Festival in Greece.
The Festival, officially called the ‘Horrorant Film Festival: Fright Nights’ opened yesterday in Athens, and is welcoming cinema-crazy fans. After a week of “terrorizing” Athenians, the festival will move to Thessaloniki. The festival’s program will turn sensitive stomachs, and the organizers have promised that screenings will take place under ‘exceptional’ technical conditions.
All this will take place in one of Athens’ most popular main cinema theaters, Odeon Opera, from March 13 to 19. Immediately afterwards, from March 20-26, the festival will move to Thessaloniki at the Fragani cinema. A ticket for one movie costs 6 euros, while fans of the genre who wish to watch all the movies of the day pay just 10 euros.
A glance at the festival shows that the organizers know very well what they want to do and how to do it. European premieres, movies from the biggest foreign festivals, Greek horror productions, judging and awards by connoisseurs of the genre, a particular sensitivity and love of neo giallo, and parties, make this festival unique.  Eleni Filini appears in a surprise role in the Greek film noir, “The Final Payoff” by Alexander Leontaritis.
