Join us for the second of our Q-RATED! #QueerHorrorNights at The Castle Cinema: Kimberly Peirce’s CARRIE (2013) Sunday 10 April 14:00. We’ll be donating a % of box office & inviting audience cash donations for WISH, a women’s mental health charity based in Tower Hamlets.

CARRIE d. Kimberly Peirce, 2013 + Intro & Bar Social, presented by Queer Horror Nights to raise funds for WISH women’s mental health at The Castle Cinema (10 APR 14:00):

“Queer filmmaker Kimberly Peirce’s vision of Stephen King’s coming-of-age classic offers a fresh take on horror’s most infamous mother-daughter relationship, re-imagining Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz) as an outcast young woman, taught to be ugly and shamed on the internet, who finds a way to step into her power.”

Queer Horror Nights is using this event to raise funds for our friends at WISH, a women’s mental health charity based in Tower Hamlets. WISH supports women with multiple complex needs who may have been detained in prison or secure hospital and are now resettling in the community. We’re donating a percentage of box office and inviting cash donations for a special prize draw at the event. Find out more about WISH at womenatwish.org.uk.
