Forbidden Worlds Film Festival – created by a group of Bristol cinephiles - is dedicated to screening fantasy, action, science-fiction and horror films from around the world and celebrating the people that made them.
This year, the festival will make a home of Bristol’s former IMAX cinema – now Bristol aquarium – originally opened in 2000. The venue – still occasionally used as an event space - hasn’t hosted regular film screenings in over a decade.
This is set to change this Halloween, when a selection of much-loved and lesser-known horror movies fill the space with light and sound in Forbidden Film Festival: Big Screams.
The carefully curated line-up of scary movies features a mixture of masterpieces and must-see curios celebrating the monstrous and the supernatural.
These include Sam Raimi’s horror-comedy sequel Evil Dead II - celebrating its 35th birthday in 2022 - the original 1978 Halloween from the now-legendary John Carpenter, and 1985’s cult favourite Fright Night.
Organisers have arranged for a selection of titles to be presented with descriptive subtitles for those hard of hearing or deaf. More information and tickets can be found via Forbidden Worlds' website.
