TAUPO HALLOWEEN FILM FESTIVAL 2016
It was a night of fantastic thrills and chills for those who turned up and partook in the night's festivities. Celebrating the best the silver screen had to offer with films from many local and international film-makers.
Those with nerves of steel braved the haunted walk, entering through the dragons mouth and into the pit of the beast with scarers from Taupo's Actors Studio providing scares from every nook and cranny. As participants made their way down the darkened aisles, freaks, ghouls, deranged surgeons, monsters and ghosts crept and lurked behind every corner to scare even the most adventurous.
Emerging more pale and shaken than when they entered, the photo booth awaited.
Then the lights to go down and it's time to enjoy the films. There was a splendid mix of horror, gore, comedy, suspense, drama and spine chilling spookiness. Something for all tastes.
It was a fantastic night all around.
Thank you for turning up and enjoying the night with us.
