The full programme has been announced for the 14th annual Horrorthon festival at the Irish Film Institute in Dublin – and if you want blood, you've got it.

This year's festival runs from October 27 to 31 and will feature new releases from Irish and international directors, classics and 'lost' films, with the guest of honour Terminator and Aliens star Michael Biehn.

He will present his directorial debut, The Victim, in which he also stars, and take part in interviews about Aliens and his starring role in another new film, The Divide.

Derek O’Connor, Horrorthon Programme Associate, said: "This year's Horrorthon programme is really one for the fans - anyone who loves horror movies will find something to their delectation, from beloved cult classics to the best of the new breed. And we couldn't be more excited to welcome a bona fide Horrorthon Hero - Mr Michael Biehn, star of Terminator and Aliens, and now a fine filmmaker in his own right - to Dublin. It's going to be bloody marvellous! Happy Halloween!"

Tickets for the opening and closing night films are €10, with all other screenings €9.

Passes are also available for one (€40), two (€67), three (€95), four (€120) and five (€125) days.
