LIAF 2016: Late Night Bizarre (18)

December 7, 2016
9:30 pm

What is there to say? LIAF’s annual screaming tribute to body fluids, mutilation, dodgy sex, sub-legal practices and inappropriate touching will burst forth from the screen for 65 glorious minutes.

This year we can promise Japanese sex-education, terrifying bugs, satanic babes and the misuse of bingo balls.

As long as you keep coming, we’ll keep putting it on.
