10/02/15 – A GOOD MARRIAGE.
We kick off our Stephen King season with the UK premiere of A GOOD MARRIAGE based on Stephen King’s novella which was published in his short story collection Full Dark, No Stars. Stephen King who is often critical of adaptations of his work said the film “will scare the hell out of millions of people. To me, that’s always an exciting prospect.”.
When her husband (Anthony LaPaglia) of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson (Joan Allen) looks for batteries in the garage. Instead she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage. Doors 7.30, Film at 8.
19/02/15 – CARRIE
Synopsis This terrifying adaptation of Stephen King’s bestselling horror novel was directed by shock maestro Brian De Palma for maximum, no-holds-barred effect. Sissy Spacek stars as Carrie White, the beleaguered daughter of a religious kook (Piper Laurie) and a social outcast tormented by her cruel, insensitive classmates. When her rage turns into telekinetic powers, however, school’s out in every sense of the word. De Palma’s horrific climax in a school gym lingers forever in the memory, though the film is also built upon Spacek’s remarkable performance and Piper Laurie’s outlandishly creepy one. Doors 7.30, Film at 8.
12/03/15 – SALEM’S LOT
This haunting classic TV Movie turned Feature Film tells the tale of Novelist Ben Mears (David Soul) returning to his hometown of Salem, finding that things have changed a bit. In fact, the previously warm and friendly community is downright sinister. Mears suspects that the bizarre behaviour of his long time friends and neighbours is the handiwork of oddball antique dealer Richard J. Straker (James Mason). Do not miss seeing this atmospheric chiller on the big screen, based on Stephen Kings book and Directed by horror master Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Doors 7.30, Film at 8.
09/04/15 – CREEPSHOW
Creepshow is a cult classic anthology from two of horrors most iconic creators, George A Romero (Dawn of The Dead) and Stephen King. The film contains 5 sections, held together with 50?s style comic images. A murdered man returns from the grave demanding his Father’s Day cake and death ensues, a meteor’s space ooze causes anything and anyone that comes in contact with it to grow (special appearance by Stephen King himself), a scheming vengeful husband buries his wife and her lover in sand to await death at high tide, a professor selects his nagging negative wife to become a tasty snack for a strange crated creature, and finally, a mean ole millionaire with an intense insect phobia becomes the prey of an army of cockroaches!
