IFI HORRORTHON 2022
Horrorthon is back, October 27th - 31st!
We are delighted to welcome audiences to this year’s IFI Horrorthon, a weekend celebrating all that is best in horror. It is a particular pleasure after recent years to be able to do so together, as horror is most definitely best enjoyed as a communal experience, in a cinema full of fellow fans. This year’s selection includes films from locations as far-flung as Thailand and Mexico, as well as the opening film of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and new 4K restorations of some of the best films by the legendary Dario Argento. We very much look forward to sharing this year’s films with you.
