A double screening of two cult horror classics is taking place this very Friday the 13th in the snug Denzille Lane Cinema.
The Friday Picture Show Presents: Carnival of Souls and Eyes Without A Face.
Carnival of Souls (Herk Harvey, 1962) centres on the "strange waking dream of a young woman left for dead in an horrific car accident. Plagued by ghostly apparitions, and the memory of her murdered mother, she finds her way to the Carnival of Souls." Often described as a highly influential but little seen film, it is a must for all cult film fans.
The other screening is Eyes Without a Face (Georges Franju, 1959) Also known as Les Yeux Sans Visage; Franju's shocker tells the story of the brilliant Dr Genessier, whose beautiful daughter was horrifically maimed in a car accident, caused by her father. With his daughter interred in the Doctor's mansion, Genessier sends his assistant out into the night to entrap young women whose faces he needs, so that he may once again restore his daughter's beauty.
Tickets for both productions are available right here on entertainment.ie. The spookiness begins at 8pm.
Another film club of sorts that has been running successfully for some time now is Film Fatale in the gorgeous Sugar Club on Dublin's Leeson Street.
On the evening of May 5th there will be a screening of Joseph L Mankiewicz's Oscar-winning drama, All About Eve, which will be followed by an elegant 1950s ball mirroring the film’s award ceremony with live performances, while Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, will play music from the film’s era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing in their vintage finest, paying homage to 1950s glamour or emulating the characters from the film.
