   OF HORROR

Demons

Sunday 20th October
Doors 8:00pm / Film 8:30pm
The Ultimate Picture Palace, OX4 1BN

1985 Italy. Lamberto Bava

Horror maestro, Dario Argento produced and co- wrote this gonzo, Italo-horror, gory classic. Shot in Berlin and Rome, Bava’s heavy metal themed, rampaging, splatter fest takes place almost entirely within a cinema, celebrating the horror movie absolute.

Ring

Monday 21st October
Doors 7:30pm / Film 8:30pm
Tap Social Movement, OX2 0LX

1998 Japan. Hideo Nakata

Face twisting fear is served up as a delicious technological take on urban legend dread. This hugely influential modern nightmare has become a cult classic, spawning sequels, re-makes and reviving and reinventing Japanese horror.

The Exorcist

Tuesday 22nd October
Doors 7:30pm / Film 8:30pm
GLUT American Diner, OX1 2BQ

1973 United States. William Friedkin

William Peter Blatty’s best selling novel was brought to the screen by celebrated movie Brat, Friedkin, dealing havoc throughout the world. Fainting audience members, barf bags for punters, Mike Oldfield’s haunting soundtrack; if ever celluloid has become legend, it is The Exorcist.

The Haunting

Wednesday 23rd October
Doors 7:30pm / Film 8:30pm
Modern Art Oxford, OX1 1BP

1963 United States. Robert Wise

Shot and set in a misty, rural England of yesteryear, the film Martin Scorsese voted the scariest movie of all time, still troubles and terrifies fifty six years later. Julie Harris’ perpetually disturbed, intense performance guides us through this harrowing trip into the supernatural.

Evil Dead 2

Thursday 24th October
Doors 7:30pm / Film 8:30pm
The Jericho Tavern, OX2 6AE

1987 United States. Sam Raimi

Bombastic sequel, out splattering and laughing it’s predecessor with b movie glee. Raimi’s delight in making the audience laugh, squirm and jump out of their seats is evident from the get go. A nailed on cult classic.

In the Mouth of Madness Plus Q&A with Louise Blain

Monday 28th October
Doors 7:30pm / Film 8:30pm
The Jam Factory, OX1 1HU

1994 United States. John Carpenter

Infatuation of a story teller’s tales bleeds off the page into reality in this search for a missing, best selling horror scribe. The populist writer’s work is consumed en-masse and tensions are mounting awaiting his latest novel. An insurance agent’s hunt for the great, Sutter Cain will lead him straight into the mouth of madness.
