Shriekaramatakes place on Saturday 27th September from 3:30pm – 9:30pm at the Caroline of Brunswick pub, 39 Ditchling Road, Brighton, BN1 4SB. Entry is FREE and there will be monster merchandise on sale courtesy of Space Monsters magazine! See below for details of the films being screened…
* MARK OF THE VAMPIRE (1935) An iconic classic Bela Lugosi vampire flick with controversial (at the time) lesbian undertones.
* THE HOUSE THAT BLED TO DEATH (1980) One of Hammer Films’ last great shockers. Made for TV, this pushed the boundaries of blood, guts and gore on primetime television.
* BLACK SABBATH (1963) The legendary Mario Bava directs this iconic trilogy of chilling tales. A true cult classic!
This special event is being presented as part of the Scalarama cult film festival. Entrance is FREE but over 18’s only please!
The boisterous original that launched a wonderfully tasteless trilogy, BASKET CASE tells the tale of apparently amiable country bumpkin Duane Bradley (Van Hentenryck), who arrives at a seedy Manhattan hotel carrying an ominously large wicker basket into which he regularly inserts morsels of fast food.
Although he’s initially bemused by the hotel’s stable of lowlifes, it’s soon clear that Duane has a murky mission of his own – namely to exact revenge on the corrupt surgeons who separated him, not very efficiently, from his malformed conjoined twin brother, who of course provides the film with its title.
Unfortunately complications creep in when Duane falls for the doctors’ pulchritudinous receptionist (Smith), but ultimately this doesn’t spoil the splatter-fest which writer-director Henenlotter and his cast execute with a camp glee worthy of John Waters or Herschell Gordon Lewis.
One of the true gems of the grindhouse cinemas of NYC’s 42nd Street, BASKET CASE serves up everything a late-night audience could desire. Amusingly bizarre and twisted, and brought to you in the grottiest format possible – a very rare 35mm print.
