Not only is this the 26th edition of the Lund Fantastic Film Festival, this year’s celebration of the best in international genre cinema overlaps with the most ghoulish of holidays: Halloween!
It’s a match made in heaven (or hell) and Fantastic Lund wants to show you a good time on the year’s creepiest day with a trio of treats for Halloween fans.
On October 31, the evening kicks off at 7 pm with a package of Halloween Horror shorts.
Five fantastic, horrifying films that will keep you weary of late nights at the station, truly uneasy in the comfort of your own home, be it bedroom or bath, or haunted by countryside lore and the whispers from the unknown. Halloween Horror features: A Tale Best Forgotten (Tomas Stark), Abracitos (Tony Morales), Milk Teeth (Felipe Vargas), Platform (Mark Pluck) and Shadow At The Door (Roshni “Rush” Bhatia).
Continuing the seasonal chills, Lund Fantastic is thrilled to bring John Fawcett’s Ginger Snaps back to the big screen for a special 20th anniversary screening at 8 pm. Easily one of the most original werewolf movies to date, Fawcett’s debut offers teen horror from a feminist perspective as Ginger Fitzgerald (Katharine Isabelle) is confronted with strange bodily transformations after being bitten by the beast of Bailey Downs on the night of he first period.
Ginger Snaps guarantees a bloody good time, so don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to re- visit the cult classic on the big screen – on the day of a full moon no less!
Following the frights at Kino, festival-goers can take to the streets for a 10 pm ghost tour that starts right in front of Lund’s gothic Cathedral.
What’s better than a ghost story or gruesome old murder mystery? On Halloween, join us for a different tour in the center of Lund, where you will hear about the ghosts, murders, massacres, strange people and other odd events and phenomena in Lund’s ancient and dark history.
We round up the evening with a drink and some snacks at Ebbas or Herbivor in Lund.
Getting into the seasonal spirit by dressing up is highly recommended.

– Halloween Horror Shorts (7 pm – Kino)
– Ginger Snaps (8 pm – Kino)
– Ghost tour (10 pm – in front of Lund’s Cathedral), followed by a nightcap with snacks
An all-inclusive package for a single price of 150 SEK.
