Suspiria (1977) & Re-Animator (1985) - The only thing more terrifying than the last 12 minutes of these films are the first 80!
This Halloween Spook Night Double Feature is an R16 ticketed event with both door sales and online ticketing ($10 for both films). Doors open 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start. Guest presenter is popular culture and horror film guru Erin Harrington. Fangs are optional, but there will be a prize for the best-dressed.
Please assist us by not bringing in outside food and drink. These will be available onsite so come early to buy $5 beer, wine & cider, $2 soft drinks and $2 home baking. Please note; I.D. may be required for ticket and alcohol sales.
What are we showing?
- Suspiria (Dario Argento, 1977, 98 minutes, Italy, R16). A Zombie fun in a camp horror classic and takes HP Lovecraft's book and adds twenty-four gallons of fake blood for the perfect mix of humour and horror.
- Re-Animator (Stuart Gordon, 1985, 86 minutes, USA, R16) is a gloriously irrational fever dream: but be warned this is horror in high-contrast technicolor with a score to give you nightmares..
