Pick your poison as our annual Shock & Gore party night returns, audience members choosing to watch one of two classic horror movies, with the night embellished by themed cocktails and big screen videogaming.
Our main screen will be hosting a 20th anniversary showing of 1998 comic book horror Blade, starring Wesley Snipes as the titular vampire hunter out to avenge his mother’s death at the hands of psychotic bloodsuckers, represented by Stephen Dorff’s techno loving vamp intent on summoning up a vampire blood god.
The very first Marvel box office success, Blade is a violent world away from the family friendly comic book films that dominate cinemas today, setting its stall early with a blood drenched rave. Stan Lee’s cameo was cut from the final edit, but he’s made up for it since.
