'Aliens' Star Michael Biehn Guest of Honour at 14th Dublin Horrorthon
06 Oct 2011 :
Biehn in Terminator
‘Terminator’ star Michael Biehn (Aliens, The Abyss) is to present his directorial debut ‘The Victim’ at this year’s bank holiday Horrorthon at the IFI. Irish films to be screened include Jason Figgis’ haunted house documentary ‘Cathnafola’ and Paul Ward’s short film adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘One for the Road’ which is showing on the opening night.

Biehn will take part in a Q&A along with his on and off-screen leading lady Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, to present his twisted backwoods revenge flick ‘The Victim’ that he wrote, directed and starred in. Biehn will also do Q&As in his capacity as lead actor in Xavier Cans’ new apocalypse survival movie ‘The Divide’ and the all-time classic ‘Aliens’ which will be shown in 70mm.

Opening the festival is Nick Murphy’s atmospheric investigation into a supernatural death at a boys boarding school in ‘The Awakening’. Other highlights include Robin Hardy’s long awaited follow up to 1973 ‘The Wicker Man’, ‘The Wicker Tree’. A sneak preview of the portrait of Australian serial killer Robert Bunting ‘Snowtown’ will be screened and an international line-up including Spain’s ‘Kidnapped’, Germany’s ‘Urban Explorers’, Canada’s ‘Theatre Bizarre’ and Israel’s ‘Rabies’.

The Irish Film Institute announced the programme for the annual gore-fest yesterday, which also includes classic films (Blow Out, Play Misty for Me), forgotten horror jems (Burnt Offerings, the Grindhouse Movie Trailers), children-friendly screenings (The Dark Crystal, Flash Gordon), the annual Surprise Film and for Halloween night itself, ‘Halloween II’.

The IFI Horrorthon takes place from October 27th-31st. Tickets are available now from the IFI Box Office on 01 6793477 or online at www.ifi.ie.
