The Love Witch

Anna Biller, USA 2016, 120 mins, Adv cert 15

Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find true love. In her gothic apartment she makes spells and potions to seduce men, with much success. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved drives her to the brink of insanity and murder. Style and sorcery combine in this clever and gorgeous tribute to the technicolor thrillers of the 60s.

Sophia, renting an old mansion in the remote Welsh countryside, hires an occultist (played by Steve Oram) in order to perform an ancient ritual so that she can speak to her dead child.  But the gruelling ritual begins to test their sanity and even their souls when Sophie’s real intentions are revealed…

Bad Film Club

The Bad Film Club are once again bringing true horror to Halloween with a shocking (shockingly bad) example of a cult cinema classic. This year it's the turn of battling werewolves and monster gangs in this 1985 "classic". Our hero Stefan must journey to Transylvania to save mankind by fighting and destroying Stirba, the immortal queen of all werewolves. Will he make it? Will the human race be saved? Will it want to be after watching this movie? Join us to find out...

Carrie
