Mayhem Film Festival to host UK Premiere of HEADSHOT and live performance from THE DUKE ST WORKSHOP feat. Laurence R. Harvey
With its 12th edition fast approaching, Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce it will screen the UK Premiere of Headshot from Indonesian duo, Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto, aka the Mo Brothers (Macabre, V/H/S/2), at Broadway, Nottingham.
Starring The Raid’s Iko Uwais as Ishmael, Headshot, follows an amnesiac whose violent past comes back to haunt him. After the young doctor who nursed him gets kidnapped, Ishmael finds himself battling gangs of highly-skilled fighters he may have once worked with in the Indonesian underground, sparking fragments of his identity to resurface.
Taking place on 13 – 16 October, this year’s festival will open with a live performance from The Duke St Workshop, featuring cult horror actor Laurence R Harvey (Human Centipede II & III, The Editor), and presented in collaboration with Nottingham-based film club Kino Klubb. The Duke St Workshop will be performing and expanding from their LP, Tales of H.P. Lovecraft, consisting of two Lovecraft stories – ‘From Beyond’ and ‘The Hound’ – told over an hour-long set through meditative tinkles, sputtering howls of eerie electronica and nightmarish narrations. This haunting audio/visual feast is absolutely not to be missed.
"This year the range of films and genres on offer has expanded, explains Mayhem Co-Director Chris Cooke. So it's great that the hyper action and kinetic violence of the Mo Brothers’ latest film, Headshot, as well as the mind-bending horror of H.P. Lovecraft are represented and exist side by side at our festival. Lovecraft really is a crucial architect of the horror genre and this unique event, organised with the ever excellent Kino Klubb is something we're very excited about."
Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 13-16 October. Early Bird Passes for the festival are still available at the discounted price of £60 for a limited time only. For more information and to book your passes, please visit http://www.mayhemfilmfestival.com/
