The Rock Horror in Rio Film Festival is more than a film screener, it’s an event that unites the best of the horror, thriller, and fantasy films with rock & roll in a big party for moviegoers who love music, and cinema.

Our huge halloween themed pajama party will take place in one of the most interesting and hip locations of Rio de Janeiro, Porto Maravilha. Recently, renewed, it has a bohemian and industrial atmosphere, featuring the Guanabara Bay as its backdrop, a perfect location for a horror movie film festival that lasts from dusk till dawn, and culminates with a rock concert every night.

Prepare your heart for scarily exciting nights filled with the best of international thrillers, rock & roll, drinks in test tubes, and lots of purple popcorn.
