The BBC2 horror double bills of the 1970s and 1980s are a distant, happy memory. Many classic horror films are now deemed suitable for family viewing, most are ripping yarns and have inspired other film-makers, artists, authors and generally enriched our lives.
Now you can recapture those halcyon days of the old BBC2 Saturday night horror double bills in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere at one of London’s premiere boutique cinema venues.

Film4 Frightfest all-nighter at Watershed, Bristol(0)
Film4 Frightfest All-nighter
After the revolting success of last year’s inaugural event, Film4 FrightFest, the UK’s best horror and fantasy film festival, returns, bringing its critically acclaimed midnight madness to Watershed for Halloween. Featuring five terrifying films and sick shorts (including the world premiere of a scary short made in Bristol) over one intense all nighter (21:00 – 07:00), this is horror as the gods of cinema intended: as a multiple bill, in a dark room surrounded by other enthusiastic film fans.
Be entertained in the Café/Bar throughout the night by Hellfire DJs, who have dug deep into the morgue of forgotten, sonic oddities to bring you a deliciously poisonous aural combination of music and bespoke projections spliced together from their collection of bizarro b-movies and vintage euro-schlock positively oozing with sleaze.
With music, projections, food, drinks, plenty of coffee, short films and even a bloody breakfast all here to keep you going, this is bound to be a night to remember. The question is: can you survive the whole night?
Fee: £35.00 full / £30.00 concessions.
Book your 10 hour frightfest extravaganza online or call Box Office on 0117 927 5100.
Halloween showing of Peter Jackson’s Braindead at Cornerhouse, Manchester(0)
In collaboration with up-and-coming cult film night Optic, we’re pleased to announce a special late night screening of Peter Jackson’s 1990s classic Braindead, in all its original 35mm glory.
This trashy, gross-out horror follows village dweeb Lionel Cosgrove who is trying to maintain a budding romance with the sweet Paquita, whilst concealing the fact that his mum is a flesh-eating zombie. Meanwhile, Lionel’s greedy uncle Les suspects that his sister is dead and attempts to take over her mansion. But when Les celebrates his inheritance, his sister and her zombie pals seek revenge, and Lionel is tasked with saving his romance.
To help get the Halloween party started there will be a licensed bar in Cinema 1 plus some pre-screening surprises. Ticket holders also get 10% off all food in our Café Bar on the evening.
Braindead screens on Sat 27 October at 23.00. Tickets are now on sale.

Jaws screening at Cornerhouse, Manchester(0)
Jaws screening at Cornerhouse, Manchester
Steven Spielberg’s 1975 shark saga Jaws was the first Hollywood summer blockbuster and remains one of the greatest films of all time.
When a number of shark attacks threaten to kill the tourist trade on the small seaside destination of Amity Island, Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) must enlist the help of crusty old sea dog Quint (Robert Shaw) and marine scientist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) to eliminate the menace. Setting out into the deep ocean on Quint’s boat, they soon come to face to face with the beast and a battle of wits ensues – but who will be the victor?
Featuring an Oscar-winning score from John Williams, don’t miss the opportunity to see this classic thriller again – just make sure you’ve got a big enough boat!
Jaws was produced by the legendary Richard Zanuck who died last Friday aged 77. In Spielberg’s own words: “In 1974, Dick Zanuck and I sat in a boat off Martha’s Vineyard and watched the mechanical shark sink to the bottom of the sea…Dick turned to me and smiled. ‘Gee, I sure hope that’s not a sign.’ That moment forged a bond between us that lasted nearly 40 years.”
Jaws screens on Sunday 22 (12.00noon) and Wednesday 25 (13.30pm) July. Booking is now open.
