With just over five weeks to go before Australia’s premier genre film festival, MONSTER FEST returns for its seventh year from November 23-26, we’re pleased to announce our second wave of programming for this year’s festival!

Making its Australian Premiere is Rondo Award-winning filmmaker, Steve Mitchell’s debut documentary, KING COHEN, a feature-length retrospective on legendary filmmaker Larry Cohen. This year our world famous ALL-NIGHT MARATHON will accompany KING COHEN with a from dusk till dawn program paying tribute to the one and only cinematic maverick, Larry Cohen.
