If horror flicks are your jam, then listen up.

The first ever Annual Perth Horror Film Festival presented by Perth Horror Fans is making its way to your screens this August 19 – 21 at The Backlot.

Not for the faint of heart, the lineup will have eager horror film fanatics enjoying a bloody good time with a mix of local horror and science fiction short filmmakers and classic feature films rarely screened in Australia, all carefully selected by genre fans for genre fans – so even if you think you know it all, you might find some hidden gems you haven’t watched before.

There will also be lots of prizes given away across the three days, and the chance for audience members to vote for their favourite short film of the festival in order to crown the winning filmmaker by the end.
