BLACK MOTHER at ArtHouse Crouch End (08 NOV 18:20):

  • Four-year-old Kun has a new baby sister, and the loving attention once lavished on him by his parents appears to evaporate instantly. With his mother and father preoccupied, Kun experiences the arrival of his sister Mirai as competition for their love.

SUSPIRIA (1977) at The Prince Charles (08 NOV 13:20):

  • Dario Argento is Europe’s leading horror director and his SUSPIRIA is a masterpiece, situated between art-house aesthetics and splatter gore-fest. Argento’s expressionist hyper-assault on our senses is legendary!
