LIAF 2014 Late Night Bizarre

November 1, 2014
9:00 pm

Crazy, scary, confounding – here’s this year’s collection of the weirdest films submitted to LIAF – bundled up as the annual collection of Late Night Bizarre.

Expect drug-addled axe swinging penguins, unusual feeding arrangements, cowpokes poking where cowpokes shouldn’t be poking, scary bottoms, juggling clowns and much, much more. And DON’T put the title of the opening film into an on-line translator. You know what we mean and we know what you want.
