RESIDENT EVIL (special screening: Filmmakers Attending!)
Sat Nov 7, 20:30 - Sat Nov 7, 22:45
SPECIAL 2015 SA HORRORFEST ADDITION!
We're excited to announce that we're fortunate enough to have the makers of all 6 RESIDENT EVIL films on hand to attend the screening of the original classic (that helped resurrect the zombie genre - and create one of cinema's most enduring kick-ass action leading ladies).
They are currently in SA shooting the 6th and final chapter to this successful epic Action / Horror / Sci-Fi franchise.
Based on the video game, the RESIDENT EVIL films have taken on a life of its own.
With the final chapter set to come full circle, the filmmakers (including attending director / producer Paul W.S. Anderson and his production partner Jeremy Bolt), they decided it would be very apt to go back to its origins for this special HorrorFest screening, with the movie that started it all.
Many may not have had the opportunity to see this first film in cinemas, so now's your chance (plus you'll be able to ask the filmmakers some questions regarding this amazing universe they created!) - Seats are limited, so don't snooze!
RESIDENT EVIL's genesis follows amnesiac heroine Alice (played by Milla Jovovich) and a group of Umbrella Corporation commandos as they attempt to contain the outbreak of the T-virus at a secret underground facility, facing a miriad of zombies and new & gruesome biological creations.
It also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Eric Mabius and Martin Crewes. Features music by Marilyn Manson and Marco Beltrami.
Not to be missed!
For info on the rest of the HORRORFEST (running from 26 October - 6 November), which includes loads of movies, documentaries and several short film chapters (you're unlikely to see in any SA cinema), live soundtrack performance to a classic silent film, literature, night market, Halloween dress-up competition and much more, head to www.HORRORFEST.info
