July 28 @ 9:15 pm - 11:59 pm
Dust off those sleeping bags… The Arrow Video Club is returning to The Prince Charles Cinema for another all-nighter!
We’ll be taking you on an 80s schlock horror adventure battling through zombie hoards in DEMONS and NIGHTMARE CITY, evading killers in stalk ‘n slash fests DOOM ASYLUM and SATAN’S BLADE and, if that wasn’t enough, we’ll be unleashing a mystery forthcoming release onto the big screen that won’t be joining the Arrow Video line until 2019!
Arrow Video staff will be on hand all evening for giveaways, party pranks and offering a selection of Arrow Video goodies for sale! Just remember folks, no kidnapping guests from other screenings, that sorta thing is frowned upon…
See you there! If you dare….
Lamberto Bava and Dario Argento bring you THE Gonzo Horror movie of the 1980s with Demons, a frenzied slice of gore heavy shock cinema that gives up on logic and instead assaults the screen with a riot of X-Rated violence, face chewing Zombies and pounding Heavy Metal.
In a mysterious cinema, an audience are watching a brutal horror flick when the horror rips out of the screen, unleashing a swarm of slathering Demons who are intent on spreading their evil plague across the globe.
Time to tool up and take no prisoners… The Demons are coming!
DOOM ASYLUM (1987)
If you thought Sex and the City 2 was a stomach-churner, you ain’t seen nothing yet! Log before playing one of Carrie Bradshaw’s best gal pals, actress Kristen Davis found herself up against an altogether different kind of horror in 1987’s Doom Asylum: a riotous mix of gore, gags and goth girl groups galore!
When a group of horny teens wind up on the grounds of a creepy abandoned asylum, they think they’ve found the perfect place to party. Little do they know that inside the building’s crumbling walls lurks a freakishly deformed maniac, driven to madness by the tragic loss of his fiancée in a car accident. With an array of grisly surgical tools at his disposal, it’s only a matter of time before the youngsters begin meeting various splattery ends at the hands of the ghoulish Coroner.
Helmed by director Richard Friedman (Scared Stiff and Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge), and also starring Penthouse Pet of the Year 1988 Patty Mullen (Frankenhooker), Doom Asylum combines outlandish gore and a wise-cracking villain to create one of the most wildly entertainingly blood-spattered slashers of the late ’80s.
NIGHTMARE CITY (1980)
Long before zombies took up jogging in 28 Days Later and Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead remake, they were brandishing axes and other sharp implements in Umberto Lenzi’s utterly insane radiation-sickness opus Nightmare City.
In true Zombie Flesh Eaters form, our story begins with the arrival of an ominous, seemingly unmanned craft – in this instance, a military plane making an unscheduled landing at a European airport. Upon forcing the aircraft doors open, the waiting soldiers get a nasty shock when out bursts a horde of flesh-hungry, pizza-faced radioactive ghouls. The walking dead are here, and they’re hungry!
Counting amongst its fans the likes of Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth, Nightmare City (aka City of the Walking Dead) is a bonkers slice of Italian zombie carnage from the man who shocked the world with the notorious Cannibal Ferox.
SATAN’S BLADE (1984)
An unholy talisman of murder and madness!
One of the lesser known entries in the annals of the ’80s slasher film, Satan’s Blade is an eerie slice of US regional terror ripe for rediscovery by horror fans.
Arriving at a snow-capped mountain resort, a group of youngsters are met by the news that a double-murder has taken place there the previous night. Despite this grisly revelation, they decide to stay on, unaware of the knife-wielding figure stalking the wintry landscape… Could the local legend of an ungodly mountain man with a grudge against outsiders have some truth in it?
Shot in Big Bear, California in 1980 but not released until 1984, L. Scott Castillo, Jr.’s Satan’s Blade overcomes the limitations of its shoestring budget with a game cast and all-pervasive, creepy atmosphere – key to which is a freakish nightmare sequence that’s sure to inspire more than a few sleepless nights.
