Monster Fest Presents: The Human Centipede 3

To celebrate, and no doubt set the tone for Monster fest’s new weekly cinema event “Monster Fest Presents”, the cult film festival has officially announced an Australia theatrical tour of The Human Centipede 3, in all its ‘gory’.

The proud and notorious tradition of Monster Fest, Australia’s seminal celebration of horror and genre cinema is expanding across Australia with its upcoming Monster Fest Presents: Friday Fright Night series. The weekly screening will show “some of the scariest, nastiest and downright depraved films ever made, all under the Monster Fest banner”, according to Monster Fest’s National Marketing Director, David Leadbetter.

The festival has always served the purpose of supporting and promoting the cult film lovers of Australia, not just in horror, but any film that struggles to find screens willing to show them.

“There are so many incredible films being released in this country that never get seen on a big screen. These Friday Fright Night screenings will change that and will give genre freaks like me a reason to live,” said Monster Fest Presents curator Ben Hellwig.

When the middle-child of The Human Centipede series, The Human Centipede 2, first hit Australian screens it was quickly torn down by an appalled conservative viewership, whose collective pressure successfully had the film re-rated. It took a re-edit of the film to get it back on Australian screens, and Monster Fest’s curator doesn’t want to see the same thing happen to the final instalment.

“We want this to be an all out celebration of cinematic depravity and for it to lure the genre loving throngs of this country back to the cinema where they belong.  Think cult cinema, think Monster Fest Presents,” said Hellwig.

The film will screen nation-wide on their selected dates, with the Monster Fest Presents: Friday Fright Night series continuing into the foreseeable future in Brisbane and Melbourne.
