About the Event

Welcome to The Bonfire Horror Club! For thousands of years, people have sat around the bonfire telling ghostly tales, and now we continue that tradition in front of the flickering light of the silver screen. 

Experience the spine-tingling thrills and chills of your favourite frights on the big screen. You’ll never guess what is waiting for you in the darkness as new scares await from the best new horror films from around the world as well. You might even win a prize or two. 

There will also be film themed cocktails available at the café bar for you sip between the screams.

You could WIN prizes from our sponsors:

Or, grab something to read from the Dark Oz, one of Australia's leading indie publishers at their pop-up in our lobby!

Join your fellow ghouls on the final Friday of every month for a bloody good time… if you dare.

The bonfire is calling YOU.


Director: Tobe Hooper
Actors: Marilyn Burns, Edwin Neal, Paul A. Partain, William Vail, Allen Danziger, Teri McMinn, Gunnar Hansen
Produced and directed by horror icon Tobe Hooper this genre classic celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2024!

En route to visit their grandfather's grave (which has apparently been ritualistically desecrated), five teenagers drive past a slaughterhouse, pick up (and quickly drop) a sinister hitch-hiker, eat some delicious home-cured meat at a roadside gas station, before ending up at the old family home... where they're plunged into a never-ending nightmare as they meet a family of cannibals who more than make up in power tools what they lack in social skills...

"...it doesn't pretend to do anything more than scare the pants off you." - Guardian

"Chainsaw-wielding Leatherface remains one of the most disturbing characters in horror." - Independent (UK)

"That sound, for those who have heard it, is unforgettable, and the sheer shock of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remains an all-time high for the genre." - CBR

"...as violent and gruesome and blood-soaked as the title promises" - Roger Ebert
