Fright Club screenings!! – July-Sept

Fright ClubAnother quarter roles around and thoughts turn to summer fun. Ice lollys, sunglasses and factor 50. Or if you’re a Fright Club attendee thoughts turn to 90s witchcraft, 80s monsters and 70s Shakespearian murder!

20 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep, 20 years since a bunch of bratty teenagers cast their spell over moviegoing audiences and Fairuza Balk went from being that little girl from Return To Oz to being the girl you don’t take home to mother in 1996’s The Craft.

Universal Pictures are about to launch a new shared universe series featuring all the classic Universal Monsters featuring Tom Cruise in the Mummy and Johnny Depp in The Invisible Man but we crank up the Deloreon once again and head back to Universal’s attempt to do this kind of thing in the 1980s, with Fred Dekker’s The Monster Squad.

The Monster Squad (15) – Friday 26th August at 8:30pm

USA   1987   79 mins    Dir: Fred Dekker

Count Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Mummy, The Wolfman and The Gill-Man – in one movie! Count Dracula is back. He needs a powerful amulet that will grant him the power to rule the world. Our heroes are a bunch of kids named the Monster Squad and they are the only ones daring enough to stand in their way!

And last purely by chance of the months is September’s Theatre Of Blood. Taking place in the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare, what better way to honour the man’s death than with a film where all the killings are inspired by the Great Bard.

Regular Fright Club host Darrell Buxton will be joined by 1623 Shakerspeare Company’s Artistic Director Ben Spiller for a horror/shakespeare duelling introduction!

UK   1972   104 mins   Dir: Douglas Hickox

Edward Lionheart is a classic Shakespearian actor who snaps when the critics’ barbed comments about his performances wound him. He decides to wound them back and adds murder to his repertoire, exacting revenge on the critics in the manner of Shakespeare’s more gruesome death scenes!

And now that these’s are out of the way….let the Dead And Breakfast speculation begin!!!
