SeasonIn Dreams Are Monsters

The classic horror movie all-nighter returns as part of BFI’s In Dreams Are Monsters season, with five frightening films that are all F-rated (films directed by a woman and/or written by a woman).

This special event will celebrate the women behind the camera who when they scream, scream “Action!”. Ticket price includes breakfast for those tough souls who manage to make it to morning. This event is for over 18s only and alcohol sales will end at 1am.

THE BABADOOK

A single mother (Essie Davis), plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her son's fear of a monster lurking in the house and soon discovers a sinister presence all around her when she reads to her son an eerie children's book. Remember: if it’s in a word, or it’s in a look, you can’t get rid of the Babadook.

DIR: JENNIFER KENT • 2014 • AUSTRALIA/CANADA • 1 HR 33 MINS

PET SEMATARY

Adapted from horror master Stephen King’s seminal novel, Pet Sematary tells the story of a young doctor who, after moving to Maine, buries his family’s recently deceased cat in the pet graveyard near their new home. Little does he know that the graveyard contains a terrible secret that holds the power of life after death and soon tragedy strikes.

DIR: MARY LAMBERT • 1989 • USA • 1 HR 43 MINS

THE LOVE WITCH

Feminist auteur Anna Biller presents a comedy-horror about a beautiful young witch who makes spells and potions in an effort to find a man who loves her, but unfortunately ends up with a string of hapless victims as a result. When she at last meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved drives her to the brink of insanity and murder.

DIR: ANNA BILLER • 2016 • USA • 2 HRS

RELIC

First-time writer-director Natalie Erika James’ Relic is an unforgettable new spin on the haunted-house movie, following the family of an elderly woman who goes missing and then mysteriously reappears, and their attempts to determine if her increasingly volatile behaviour is the result of dementia or an insidious presence in her home.

DIR: NATALIE ERIKA JAMES • 2020 • AUSTRALIA/USA/CHINA • 1 HR 29 MINS

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER

Before making her way to television, the world’s favourite cheerleading, stake-wielding Valley girl was busting fangs on the silver screen. Buffy Summers (Kristy Swanson) is informed by her mentor Merrick (Donald Sutherland) that she must swap pompoms for crucifixes to perform her duty as the latest in a long line of vampire slayers. With school rebel Oliver (Luke Perry) at her side, it's time to take the battle to vampire king Lothos (Rutger Hauer).

DIR: FRAN RUBEL KUZUI • 1992 • USA • 1 HRS 26 MINS
