Eight of this generation’s best genre filmmakers explore the folklore, mythology and even cryptozoology of their homelands in this fright-filled, globe-hopping anthology.

From Greece to America, Hungary to India, Field Guide to Evil comes from the demented minds of the people behind Deathgasm (MIFF 2015) and ABCs of Death. Audiences can count on a most unexpected journey filled with scares, gore and humour in this collection of short films that tackle all things mystical and mysterious. Whether it’s an underworld goblin in Greece or a childhood djinn in Turkey, this uniquely international anthology offers a genre expedition unlike any other.

Featuring contributions from internationally renowned filmmakers – including Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala (Goodnight Mommy, MIFF 2015), Peter Strickland (The Duke of Burgundy, MIFF 2015; Berberian Sound Studio, MIFF 2012), Agnieszka Smoczynska (The Lure, MIFF 2016), Katrin Gebbe (Nothing Bad Can Happen, MIFF 2013), Can Evrenol (Baskin, MIFF 2016) and Ashim Ahluwalia (Miss Lovely, MIFF 2012) – there are many weird and wonderful worlds here for audiences to experience.
