#QueerHorrorNights presents a very special event at the historic Rio Cinema – our Halloween Monsters Ball: NIGHTBREED (28 OCT 22:00+).

LYLE d. Stewart Thorndike + Short + Intro presented by Queer Horror Nights at Genesis Cinema (14 SEP 18:30).

“Queer Horror Nights is thrilled to present LYLE (2014) by Stewart Thorndike. Sometimes referred to as a ‘lesbian ROSEMARY’S BABY’, Thorndike’s LYLE is a tale of pregnancy, motherhood, grief and isolation. With an incredibly powerful performance from Gaby Hoffman, LYLE tells the story of a New York couple who tragically lose their young child in a devastating accident whilst expecting their second baby. Grief and despair quickly turn into paranoia as Leah (Hoffman) suspects the neighbours are up to something sinister. A short horror film will screen before LYLE and you’re invited to join your horror hosts in the venue bar afterwards for a social.”
