The Waterfront’s licensed Movie Bar is back with a vengeance: an exclusive weekend of extreme double bills and a collection of short horror mini monstrosities showing in the Waterfront Studio from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 June.
Presented in association with Belfast Film Festival, Waterfront Movie Bar is more thrilling, more horrifying and scarier than ever before, and is definitely not for the faint hearted or easily offended.
Waterfront Movie Bar opens on Friday 1 June (9pm) with Freshly Ground Grind – a sawn off Grindhouse revival double feature. Stare down both barrels, if you dare, at The Disco Exorcist – a blood-soaked supernatural tale of black magic and disco dancing, and Father’s Day – the tale of a man obsessed with exacting a brutal revenge on the man (known as The Father`s Day Killer) who murdered his dad.
The Soiled Shorts! (Saturday 2 June from 6.30pm) is a selection of disturbing movie shorts straight from the bottom drawer of horror’s darkest trousers. Headlining with the wriggling maggot genius of Robert Morgan’s Bobby Yeah!, equally unpleasant offerings also include Doll Parts, Beating Hearts, Decapoda Shock, Tokophobia and Good Morning Beautiful.
Hybrids! (Saturday 2 June from 9pm) features two more sensational shockers. Billed as a ‘Norwegian Oil Horror,’ Dark Souls mixes gore with comedy and corporate conspiracy. It’s the perfect opener for the Irish première of the Collective’s V/H/S – the movie some critics are hailing as this year’s most horrifying and disturbing new offering. When a group of misfits is hired by an unknown third party to break into a desolate house and acquire a rare VHS tape, they discover more footage than they bargained for…Kong Hong Gone Wrong! (Sunday 3 June from 9pm) is an Asian double bill straight from the edge of morality and imagination. In Ebola Syndrome a restaurant employee wanted for murder contracts the Ebola virus in South Africa and starts an outbreak both there and in Hong Kong when he returns home. The Boxer`s Omen is the story of a man who gets caught up in a web of fate, Buddhism and black magic while in Thailand to avenge his brother who has been crippled in a fight with a corrupt Thai boxer.
