When the horror event fiends Haus of Horror started showing flicks at Parramatta Gaol, that was just the beginning of its scary-movie screenings in notably eerie venues. Next came loving all things spooky and strange at Camperdown Cemetery in Newtown — and those graveyard film nights are returning from November 2023.

Kicking things off on Saturday, November 25: Gremlins, which means remembering all of the rules about feeding after midnight, and exposing its firry creatures to water and sunlight. It also means seeing Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul's Jonathan Banks, aka Mike Ehrmantraut, plays a deputy in a bit part in this upbeat, anarchic comedy.

While the movie is the main attraction — specifically, this movie in this particular setting, especially given that it isn't usually a cinema — attendees can also enjoy a cemetery tour, Mowgli May on DJ duties, a Gremlins-themed photobooth, and food and drinks.

One caveat: attendees are asked to be respectful of the site, including its headstones, trees and buildings.

Doors open at 6pm, with the film playing from 8pm.
