The first titles have been announced:

"Opening Mayhem's 15th edition is Irish supernatural comedy Extra Ordinary. In rural Ireland, reluctant medium Rose is called upon to save a local teen from the town's resident one-hit wonder rock star, who has somewhat satanic plans to bring his career back from the dead. Expect exorcisms, and plenty of ectoplasm. Mayhem is delighted to welcome special guests from the film for a Q&A after the screening.

Next in this year's line-up is the UK Premiere of immersive Polish historical drama Sword of God (The Mute). In the early Middle Ages, two Christian knights arrive at a pagan village hidden deep in the mountains. Soon, their faith and the bond between them are brutally tested as events spiral out of control, and many will die in the name of God.

Rounding off the first wave of announcements is the genre-bending Something Else. From directors Jeremy Gardner (cult buddy-movie-zombie-outbreak film The Battery) and Christian Stella comes a completely unique take on the monster movie 203 a love story. When Hank's girlfriend vanishes, leaving only a note behind, his sanity begins to slip and something mysterious stirs in the woods that surround his home."

The full line-up has been announced

"Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the full line-up for its 2019 edition, which will take place at Broadway Cinema, Nottingham on 10-13 October. The festival showcases the best features and short films in horror, sci-fi and cult cinema, through premieres, previews, and special events each year.

Mayhem is delighted to open this year's festival with hilarious horror comedy Extra Ordinary on Thursday 10 October. A small-town driving instructor with supernatural abilities tries to get through life without communicating with the dead - but the spirits have other ideas. Also screening on Thursday is the brain-twisting Daniel Isn't Real, in which a deeply troubled student summons his childhood "imaginary" friend but his grip on reality slips as the malignant alter ego unleashes a vicious, evil side.

From the producers of hallucinatory fever dream Mandy (a sell-out at Mayhem 2018) comes the most sought-after – and similarly psychedelic - genre film of the year, Richard Stanley's Color Out of Space, screening at this year's festival on Friday 11 October. This eerie H.P. Lovecraft adaptation sees a meteor fall to earth and onto the property of a New England family — its increasingly unhinged patriarch played by the one-and-only Nicolas Cage — with insidious and delirious results. It's a double-helping of Cage this year as his 1989 cult black comedy Vampire's Kiss takes the coveted Saturday late-night slot - it's Nic Cage at his full-powered, cockroach-eating, and utterly insane best.

The 15th edition of Mayhem will play host to three UK Premieres, with exclusive first screenings of high-octane serial killer thriller The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil, Polish historical drama Sword of God (The Mute), and outrageous survival horror The Pool

Taking a look back into the archives, Mayhem is pleased to present a rare screening of 1967 Russian folk horror Viy, and 1987's cult sci-fi favourite The Hidden, featuring a standout performance from Twin Peaks' Kyle MacLachlan as an alien-hunting FBI agent.

Mayhem 2019's final day will begin with the unclassifiable Bullets of Justice. Having created human-pig hybrid super soldiers, mankind now finds itself dominated by these "Muzzles" who farm and eat human beings – a truly "what did I just watch?" experience to start off your Sunday morning.

Mayhem's 15th edition also includes screenings of female-led horror She Never Died and genre-bending monster movie, Something Else alongside preview screenings of the gleefully explosive revenge rampage Why Don't You Just Die!, high-suspense thriller Door Lock, and sci-fi nightmare Vivarium, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots. Vengeful spirits are stirred into gory action in haunted house horror Girl on the Third Floor, and twisted thrill-ride Come to Daddy, starring Elijah Wood, will close the festival on Sunday.

Mayhem's ever-popular Short Film Showcase and the fiendish film quiz, The Flinterrogation - hosted by author David Flint - both return to round off this year's line-up.

Early Bird passes will remain on sale at the discounted price of £70 until Sunday 8 September 2019. Individual tickets and full festival passes – at the standard price of £80 – will go on sale at 10AM on Monday 9 September. We will also be introducing a new 'Frankenstein Ticket Package' for this year's festival – piece together your choice of five films over the weekend for just £30.

Mayhem Film Festival takes place on 10-13 October 2019 at Broadway, Nottingham."
