SUNDAY 28TH - 4K RESTORATION PREMIERE – BLOOD FEAST
DISCOVERY SCREEN 2 - 3.35PM
Director: Herschell Gordon Lewis. Cast: Mal Arnold, Connie Mason, Thomas Wood, Lyn Bolton, Ashlyn Martin. USA 1963. 70 mins.
This is it! The infamous movie that invented the stomach-churning gore genre and made director H. G. Lewis a horror legend. In suburban Miami, an Egyptian caterer viciously kills women for their body parts to revive an ancient Egyptian goddess. Meanwhile, an inept police detective tries to track him down. With ‘Playboy’ centrefolds in key roles and acting as shocking as the splatter, this tableaux of mutilation has continued to be a controversial talking point ever since its Drive-In premiere in 1963 when disgusted audiences vomited, fainted and turned it into one of the biggest exploitation hits ever.
SUNDAY 28TH - EUROPEAN PREMIERE – SiREN

A stag party becomes a savage fight for survival when the groomsmen unwittingly unleash a fabled predator upon the drink and drug-fuelled festivities after a night at an unusual sex club on the outskirts of town. Adapted from the ‘Amateur Night’ segment contained in the horror anthology V/H/S, DANCE OF THE DEAD director Gregg Bishop adds extra layers of terror and surprise to the chilling and thrilling tale of occultist Mr Nyx and his menacing menagerie of hostesses with the most unusual talents. A frightening monster movie elevated into the shock stratosphere by propulsive drive and unusual fantasy action.
