Malling will tell us about the movie and answer questions from the audience. He will also show us behind the set of the movie. “The ABCs of Death” is an 26-chapter anthology that showcases death in all it’s vicious wonder and brutal beauty. There is a lot of famous directors behind “The ABCs of Death”, and to mention a few we got Ti West (The Innkeepers, House of the Devil), Jason Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun), Srdjan Spasojevic (A Sebian Film), Xavier Gens (Frontier(s)), Noboru Iguchi (The Machine Girl, RoboGeisha), Banjong Pisanthanakun (Shutter), Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse) and of course; our own Thomas Cappelen Malling (Kommandør Treholt & ninjatroppen). The movie is regarded a must-see by critics – so this is one happening you can’t miss.
Oslo Fright Fest has the pleasure of presenting cartoonist Kim Holm and his adaptation of the legendary H.P. Lovecraft’s short story “Pickman’s Model” at this year’s festival. Holm will present his comic book in a conversation with Norway’s grand heretic and scholar in all things Lovecraft; Didrik Søderlind – founder of the club and society “Kjettersk kjeller”.
This will be an inspired discussion about Holm’s comic and H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos that has nurtured the imagination of writers such as Stephen King, video games as “Call of Cthulhu” and “Doom”, and films like “Re-Animator”, “City of the Living Dead” and more recently “Cabin in the Woods”.
Afterwards you will have possibility of purchasing the comic directly from mr. Holm. And for our non-Norwegian speaking attendees you will be pleased to know that comic is in English.
The presentation will find place in the lobby at Vika Kino, 16.00 on Saturday 17th November.
