Australia’s longest-running showcase of horror and dark genre cinema, A Night of Horror International Film Festival (ANOH), returns for its 15th year with a frighteningly fantastic program.

Across four days, ANOH will showcase the very best in freaky, macabre and spine-chilling films from Australia and around the world.

All screenings will take place at Dendy Cinema Newtown and tickets are now on sale.

2023 program highlights include:

  • The world premiere of The Devil’s Work, the third instalment in Ursula Dabrowsky’s award-winning Demon Trilogy (Family Demons, Inner Demon). All three films stand alone, yet share similar themes of survival, revenge, and the loss of innocence.

  • Sydneysider Jack Dignan follows his 2022 ANOH award-winning debut feature After She Died with Puzzle Box, a riveting and deeply unsettling found footage purgatory tackling addition and inner demons.

  • Marie Alice Wolfszahn’s Austrian Mother Superior, winner of Best Film & Best Director at Brooklyn Horror Film Festival 2022, a unique delve into witchcraft and folk horror.

  • Sarah Tice makes her feature film debut with DID I?, a whip-smart, giallo-inspired study of alter personalities and the effects of trauma on the mind, body, and soul.

  • Gareth Carr & David Sullivan’s Saving Grace, winner of Best Horror Feature at Washington DC International Cinema Festival 2023 and Liverpool Indie Awards 2023, a psychological thriller featuring a fierce, compelling performance from rising Aussie star Kirsty Mckenzie.

  • Nicholas Tomnay’s spellbinding neo-noir thriller What You Wish For, a morality tale roasting greed, told with crisp efficiency, laced with the sharp smack of horror.

  • Jonas Trukanas’s Pensive, a slasher flick screened in Lithuanian language with English subtitles that tackles social responsibility and identity roles in a very contemporary vein.

  • Australian Shorts Gala featuring nine of the very best fright fare from Australia.

  • International Shorts Showcase featuring a selection of the creepiest, freakiest new short films from around the world.

  • “The calibre, ingenuity, and range of submissions this year truly surpassed all expectations. We were astounded by the exceptional talent and diversity on display, making the selection process a both challenging and exhilarating journey,” said Festival Director, Bryn Tilly.

    “This year’s final line-up has films from all shades of the horror spectrum, and, as one would expect post-pandemic, many of them deal with grief and trauma, each promising to send shivers down your spine, immersing you in delightfully bizarre worlds and blood-curdling nightmares.”
