Things are getting creepy at Fortitude Valley's Institute of Modern Art, with a horror movie marathon taking over the Brunswick Street venue for a whole day. Just because it'll still be light outside, that doesn't mean this feast of fear-inducing cinema won't scare up a few frights.
Get things started at 11am on Saturday, April 18 with a bona fide classic — and a film that is a whopping 98 years old. Silent German Expressionist masterpiece Nosferatu isn't quite Dracula, but Count Orlok is clearly inspired by the world's most famous vampire. And what better to pair it with than another absolute pioneer of the genre (and based on another seminal gothic horror text, too), aka the 1931 version of Frankenstein at 12.30pm?
That's the black-and-white part of the proceedings. When 2.30pm rolls around, colour will hit the IMA's big screen via buckets of blood. That's what Brian de Palma's adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie splashes about — and its supernatural story will be followed at 4.30pm by the series of Australian Indigenous ghost stories that is Tracey Moffatt's BeDevil.
Entry is free — and you can settle in for the whole marathon or just drop by whenever suits you.
