The fifth edition of the Festival dedicated to horror and fantasy films, Dracula Film Festival will be held between October 18-22, in Brașov.

mother!, the movie American publication The New Yorker called “a delightful, dreadful and almost incredible satire of Fame”, starring two Academy Award winners: Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men).
