The fierce folk at For Film's Sake, Sydney's female-focused film festival, are cooking up a movie marathon to make your hair stand on end. Screening in the carpark at the Alaska Project in Elizabeth Bay (which could be a horror film location in and of itself), this six-hour frightfest will showcase three blood-curdling horror flicks that are most definitely not for the faint of heart.
The marathon kicks off at 6pm with XX, a four part horror anthology directed entirely by women, including one segment made by Grammy-winning singer-songwriter St Vincent. That'll be followed by the provocative Bitch, about a put-upon woman who suddenly snaps and takes on the psyche of a violent dog. The marathon will come to a close with one of the all time great vampire flicks: Kathryn Bigelow's Near Dark.
The whole thing goes down on the evening of Saturday, April 29. Tickets are available here, if you've got the guts.
