Ever since their scene-stealing performances in our 2014 audience award winner What We Do In The Shadows, we’ve had a soft spot for officers Minogue and O’Leary of the Wellington Police Department, so we’re thrilled to present a special screening of their very own series Wellington Paranormal.

From a mysterious cornfield in the country to the hellmouth bucket fountain of Cuba Mall, New Zealand’s capital is a hotbed of supernatural activity.

Aliens, demons, zombies, werewolves and vampires, they’re all out in force in Wellington. To fight these paranormal threats, Sergeant Ruawai Maaka has set up the first, classified Paranormal Unit of Wellington Police. Now Officers Minogue and O’Leary have been reassigned to the new unit, bringing a wealth of experience and a dedication to keeping Kiwis safe.

Get ready to follow these two normal cops into extraordinary situations and unearth a side of Wellington you might have only heard about in stories.

We are delighted to welcome the stars of Wellington Paranormal – Karen O’ Leary and Mike Minogue – and show’s writer/producer Paul Yates to Celluloid Screams to introduce this special screening and to take part in a Q&A.

This screening has been supported by BFI Comedy genius. BFI Comedy genius is a nationwide season supported by funds from the National Lottery, led by Film Hub Midlands on behalf of the BFI UK Film Audience Network
