The capital's goriest film festival returns this Halloween celebrating the best horror, thriller, crime, action and sci-fi films from around the world. Prompting bloodcurdling screams from 28 October to 2 November at The Roxy, this year's Terror-Fi Film Festival includes 11 New Zealand premieres hot from the oven.

Headline films include Cold War horror Sputnik in its Wellington premiere. The sci-fi thriller is set in a secluded research facility where a Russian psychologist examines a cosmonaut who returned to Earth with an alien parasite inside of him. Also on the bill is 2020 horror Antebellum which stars Janelle Monae as a modern-day African American woman who must escape from a 19th-century slave plantation.

Elsewhere, Spree is a gonzo-style black comedy following a rideshare driver who wants to go viral; Alone is director John Hyams' remake of the Swedish stalker thriller; Psycho Gorman is a sci-fi comedy which follows two siblings as they resurrect an ancient alien overlord; and Rent-a-Pal is a low-budget thriller in which a lonely bachelor finds an unlikely friendship with a strange VHS tape.

Those who pick up a Terror-Fi 2020 Fan Badge can enjoy every premiere at a fraction of the price and a filmmaking masterclass. Further special events include a Q&A with filmmaker Jake Mahaffy following the screening of the his latest Wellington-shot thriller, Reunion.
