Stockholm Film Festival goes Horror: Twilight Zone and Horror Night Deluxe

The halloween weekend is knocking at our doors, so if you are feeling in need for a spook or two, well, you’ll be happy to know that Stockholm Film Festival has released the titles in the film section Twilight Zone and the Horror Night Deluxe.

Twilight Zone is the film section that offers the most adrenaline-filled and nerve wrecking cinema experiences. The films will be shown in an array of cinemas across the city during November 10th-13th.

-This year’s Twilight Zone presents more realistic and present dangers without being detached from the dark and the fantastic. Neo-nazis and punks clash in Green Room, a virus outbreak in Denmark triggers military action against middle class suburbia and a giant tsunami hits Norway, says George Ivanov, program director at Stockholm Film Festival.
