1922, 94 min, Germany, Dir: F.W. Murna

F.W. Murnau reinvents the story of Dracula as a silent German Expressionist fable and the result is one of the greatest horror films ever made. Max Schreck is astonishingly creepy as the vampire, and Murnau’s frames ooze eerie atmosphere in this hugely influential tale.

1941, Universal, 70 min, USA, Dir: George Waggner

Lon Chaney Jr. achieves cinematic immortality in the title role, one of Universal’s great movie monsters.

THE BORDERLANDS

2013, Metrodome Distribution, 90 min. Dir. Elliot Goldner

A rural English priest believes miracles are occurring at his church; in response, the Vatican sends Deacon (Gordon Kennedy) and Gray (Robin Hill) to investigate. Setting up cameras to record any unusual activity, the men approach their task with skepticism, only to discover the church hides some ancient mysteries.

Writer-director Elliot Goldner’s feature debut is an auspicious one, giving an unusually strong emphasis to character development for a found footage film without skimping on the screams.

 

“The Borderlands is scary, very unnerving and you’re never quite sure where the movie is heading.” Flickering Myth

Buy Tickets – Double Feature

2013, Drafthouse Films, 90 min, UK, Dir: Ben Wheatley

In 1648, a group of deserters from the English civil war take refuge from battle in an overgrown field, crossing paths with an alchemist’s assistant and treasure hunter.

While there are plenty of mushrooms, treasure proves elusive in the field – but something much more ominous may be hiding there.

 

This enigmatic film from on-the-rise director Ben Wheatley (KILL LIST) is both surreal and sinister, featuring moments of dark humor and stunning B&W cinematography. With Michael Smiley and Reece Shearsmith.

“A FIELD IN ENGLAND is a mind-bending monochrome masterpiece… one of the best and bravest British films of the year.” – Twitch Film

THE LAST DAYS ON MARS

Buy Tickets

2013, Magnet Releasing, Dir. Ruairi Robinson

The film concerns the first manned mission to Mars, during which a crew member discovers fossilized evidence of bacterial life. When he and another colleague vanishes, the team starts to suspect that the life form they have discovered is not yet dead, and the group begins to fall apart as it awaits for a relief ship.

 

Set during the last 19 hours of the first manned mission to Mars, “Last Days” stars Liev Schrieber, Elias Koteas, Romola Garai and Olivia Williams. Undeniably gripping, “Mars” is a lean, muscular and fast-moving genre picture that shows that science-fiction smartly done on a budget can hold its own with anything.
