Monster Fest, Australia's premiere horror, cult and genre film fest, comes to Lido Cinemas for four spectacular days of mayhem this November.

This beloved celebration of all things cult moves to the brand new Lido Cinema in Hawthorn and will be held from 26th to 29th of November 2015.

Organisers have tweaked the festival format this year; gone is the eleven-day epic of yore, and in its place a much sleeker four nights and three days!

Event-goers can expect a jam-packed lineup of anticipated local and international feature films and events with special guests, parties, masterclasses and other related malarkey!

Monster Fest 2015 kicks off with the world premiere of the Cairnes Brothers new shock-fest, Scare Campaign. The slick, clever and genuinely scary flick is exactly what the doctor ordered and Opening Night will be a blast with cast and crew on hand. Expect a night of fun and depravity for all!

The Official Selection includes close to fifty brand spanking new shorts and feature film gems, including two 'Australian Masterpiece' screenings a 10th Anniversary screening of Wolf Creek, and Aussie cult classic, Smoke 'Em if You Got 'Em.

Closing Night will showcase Knock, Knock, the much awaited new film from horror kingpin Eli Roth!

Forming part of the stellar special guest line-up is the King of Blaxploitation himself,Fred 'The Hammer' Williamson and one of horrors greatest icons, Dee Wallace, who found her way into our hearts as the Mommy in E.T. but who then reappeared in our nightmares in such horrific masterpieces as The Howling, Cujo and The Hills Have Eyes. Then, there's the little guy behind one of horror's most enduring and beloved characters, the boy werewolf himself, Butch 'Eddie Munster' Patrick!

Plus there's Kooks & Spooks, a trivia extravaganza with Melbourne's much-adored Queen of the Crypt, Cherry Bites, which will feature all special guests.

There will also be bands on the Lido rooftop, market stalls, marathons, breakfast screenings and so much more!

Indulge in the latest, greatest and rarest cult and horror cinema from Australia and almost every corner of the globe at Monster Fest 2015!
