Classic eighties horror movie The Reanimator (1985) hits the big screen as part of Frighten Brighton’s Horror Double Bill on Saturday 25th February alongside the H.G.Lewis trash gorefest The Gore Gore Girls (1972)! Tickets available from WeGotTickets!
A medical student and his girlfriend become involved in a bizarre experiment into reanimating the dead conducted by the student’s incorrigible housemate in this campy sendup of an H.P. Lovecraft story. The emphasis is on humour but once the dead walk, there is gore aplenty!
The Reanimator is a real crowd pleaser and is the perfect way to round off your evening after browsing the Macabre Market, haunting the Haunted Basement and watching the free screening of Hammer Films’ classic Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell! So come to The Rock Inn, Brighton from 12 noon on Saturday 25th February. Be there….and be scared!
