HALLOWEEN SCREENING ADDED DUE TO HUGE DEMAND!
Aislinn Clarke's debut feature film – which holds the dual distinction of being the first feature horror film written and directed by an Irish woman – is a confident and timely chiller.
What unholy terrors lurk behind the walls of a secretive Irish convent?
Northern Ireland, 1960: Father Thomas Riley (Lalor Roddy) and Father John Thornton (Ciaran Flynn) are dispatched by the Vatican to investigate reports of a miracle—a statue of the Virgin Mary weeping blood—at a remote Catholic asylum for “immoral” women. Armed with 16mm film cameras to record their findings, the priests instead discover a depraved horror show of sadistic nuns, satanism, and demonic possession. Supernatural forces are at work here—but they are not the doing of God.
Inspired by the infamous true histories of Magdalene Laundries—in which “fallen women” were held captive by the Irish Catholic Church—this found footage occult shocker is a chilling encounter with unspeakable evil.
Queen’s University alumni – and one-time QFT usher! – Aislinn Clarke is a Lecturer in Creative Writing at the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s (when she’s not scaring us to death).
To celebrate QFT's 50th Birthday and our 18 year working relationship, Belfast Film Festival and QFT present an all-night 'midnight movie' event, from dusk ‘til dawn. This is your chance to stay up all night, eat badly and have your head fried…
The long-awaited debut feature from cult writer/director/actor Matthew Holness (Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace), Possum is a stylish, unique, dark and twisted psychological horror.
Night of the Living Dead, directed by horror master George A. Romero, is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight movie hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential horror films of all time.
