Melancholy Star Presents The European Premiere For Konstantinos Koutsoliotas’ MINORE At Pigeon Shrine FrightFest 2023

18 August 2023


‘A winning horror comedy... big-hearted creature-feature… highly recommended’ - Horror Fuel 

‘Wonderful mix of horror and comedy... an absolute delight... one of the best films at this year's  Fantaspoa... a must see’ - Unseen Films 

‘A wild, weird odyssey, part ensemble drama, part invasion epic, grounded by observant  screenplay…’ - Projected Figures  

Get ready for a creature feature like no other, Minore, from award-winning director and visual effects expert  extraordinaire Konstantinos Koutsoliotas. Renowned for his work on Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities1917, West Side Story, Guardians of The Galaxy and more, Koutsoliotas brings his artistic brilliance to this unique,  Greek, magnificent monster movie.  



Filled with local flavour, brilliantly old-school style special effects, melodic music, nightmarish creatures and  gallons of gore, this enthrallingly entertaining new horror is set for its European premiere at FrightFest on  Saturday 26 August and will also screen on Monday 28 August.  

On a steamy summer’s night in Greece sailor William (Davide Tucci Napoleon, Barbarians), on shore leave, arrives in a quaint coastal village to search for his long-lost father. The town is full of music and dancing and in a  bustling taverna, where the locals are drinking and dining, William takes a shine to waitress Aliki (Daphne  Alexander The Ghost, The Fourth Kind). But after an enjoyable night, his quest quickly takes a sinister turn. A  sudden mist engulfs the town and otherworldly monsters from the deep begin to invade, enticing the locals into  the sea with strange and disturbing dreams...  



When things turn freaky, it’s fighting not flirting that takes priority as William and Aliki join forces with the  colourful locals – including bar owner, Pantelis (played by Eurovision contestant Christos Callow) – to battle the  beasts. Everyone from musicians to bodybuilders, tourists to criminals and even a priest and a granny must fight  the fearsome foes to save their tranquil town, with non-stop clashes and gratuitous gore all the way. 

Brimming with Greek authenticity, weird and wonderful special effects and with an aurally enchanting rebetiko  soundtrack, Koutsoliotas weaves a tapestry of fantasy, blood, gore and folklore, blended with outrageous action  and the darkest of humour. 



Mixing the everyday with the extraordinarily extreme, face off with the monstrous beasts from beyond in Minore and you’ll definitely be going Greek this Summer. 

Starring: Davide Tucci (Barbarians), Daphne Alexander (The Ghost), Nicolas Bravos (Don’t Read This On A Plane),  Constantin Symsiris (The Durrells), Christos Callow (Outlanders), Efi Papatheodorou (The Sisterhood Of The  Travelling Pants), Igor Górewicz (The Seeker: The Dark is Rising
