This year in Prague’s gloriously tacky and low-brow Shockproof Film Festival, catch an eclectic mix of old and new, and trash and treasure. From John Carpenter and The Blob to brutal manga horror and Lords of Chaos, missing this festival is the most stupid thing you could do this year.
Probably one of the most fun and tongue-in-cheek festivals in Prague. From Tuesday 28/02 – Sunday 05/03, the Shockproof Film Festival (Festival otrlého diváka) is dedicated to filth, schlock, comedy, horror, B-grade, X-rated – the most bizarre titles from ancient cult classics to present day. In its 13th year, the festival has a whole new host of titles to offer the eager cinema goer, as well as some old faithfuls. It’s an insanely interactive festival. Almost like a 21st century rebirth of the classic ‘Cinema of Attractions’.
