#QueerHorrorNights continue with a double bill of PSYCHO II & PSYCHO III at The Cinema Museum (Sunday 24 JULY 18:30): booking now!

MALATESTA’S CARNIVAL OF BLOOD d. Christopher Speeth, 1973 + Intro & Intermission (06 JUL 20:30 – £1!) / Part of BAR TRASH at Genesis Cinema.

“MALATESTA’S CARNIVAL OF BLOOD sees a family arrive at a creepy, dilapidated fairground in search of their missing son, only to find themselves at the mercy of cannibalistic ghouls lurking beneath the park.”

“…But that’s only part of the story! This wild trip of a low-budget movie has a DIY aesthetic like no other, with dime store gore and epic plastic dreamscapes that will haunt your nightmares, just as the absence of plot explodes your brain… “Beautifully photographed, imaginatively designed, far-out in conception and successfully bonkers at least half the time, Malatesta’s Carnival Of Blood is unlike anything you’ve seen before” Stephen Thrower (Nightmare USA).”

This screening is part of Film Feels Curious, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at filmfeels.co.uk.
