#QueerHorrorNights continue with David Cronenberg’s THE FLY (1986) at The Castle Cinema (Friday 24 JUNE 19:00): booking now!

CREATURE WITH THE ATOM BRAIN d. Edward L. Cahn, 1955 + Intro (15 JUN 20:30 – £1!) / Part of BAR TRASH at Genesis Cinema:

Creature With The Atom Brain is a chilling science-fiction thriller from 1955 directed by Edward L. Cahn (Invasion Of The Hell Creatures) and penned by legendary screenwriter Curt Siodmak (Bride Of The Gorilla). A detective investigates a series of murders orchestrated by a mob boss and an ex-Nazi scientist. Turns out the bad guys are reanimating dead thugs to do their dirty work using atomic radiation… Can anyone stop their nuclear-powered zombies?”

“This “classic Cold War creature feature” was released by Arrow Video in their limited edition Blu-ray boxset Cold War Creatures: Four Films From Sam Katzman. The set contains four thrilling films and a host of additional content including intros by critic Kim Newman, various takes on producer Sam Katzman’s incredible career, and stunning artwork by Matt Griffin.”

BAR TRASH is a new weekly event in Bar Paragon for all lovers of incredibly curious films and collectors of physical media. We’ll be showing low budget exploitation movies from the grind house and drive-in, as well as sharing our love of cult titles from distributors like Arrow, 101, Indicator, Retromedia and Eureka. Hosted by queer horror blogger TOKEN HOMO, BAR TRASH is the kind of event where the audience is the special feature. Join us!
