KNEEL BEFORE ZOD vs. MAYHEM FILM FESTIVAL.
January 31st – Broadway Cinema. Nottingham.

Neon drenched 80’s RocknRoll fable from Walter Hill, STREETS OF FIRE goes head to head (or back to back, really) with genius comedy cult cinema robo-man action from Astron 6 with MANBORG.

You asked for it. Since Mayhem’s first screening of MANBORG you have been asking when it will be shown again… well, the answer of FOR FREE on Friday 31st January in Broadway’s CafeBar, straight after a screening of the amazing STREETS OF FIRE from regular Cinema Diaboloque maven’s Kneel Before Zod.

STREETS OF FIRE directed by Walter Hill (1984) Cert 15. 92 mins. Starring Willem Dafoe, Diane Lane, Michael Pare.
Sultry singer Ellen Aim is kidnapped by renegade biker gang The Bombers and only her ex, a soldier of fortune, can get her back. A rock n’ roll fable comes to neon-lit life in the hands of Hill (The Warriors) in this masterpiece of genre blending, which pits broodingly heroic Michael Pare in a sledgehammer fight against celluloid burning, ultra-intense Willem Dafoe.

“Like taking a movie holiday… a blast!” Cine Outsider.

MANBORG directed by Steve Kostanski/Astron 6 (2011). Cert 12. 62 mins. Starring Manborg, Mina, Doctor Scorpius and Justice.
Screening for FREE in the Café-Bar, the hilariously retro-fitted, cyborg fuelled homage to the cult cinema of the 80’s is back by popular demand. The armies of hell have taken over the world and only one half-man/half-robot hero can save us from Draculon and his underling, The Baron. Hysterical Sci-Fi shenanigans guaranteed.
“Ridiculous.” Variety

DON’T OPEN TILL CHRISTMAS (Sunday 22nd December 2013)

Christmas seems so long ago. Pre-Christmas seems longer.

Every year we host our smallest and most intimate events in the most unique and fascinating venues in Nottingham every Christmas. The only constants being that they’re typically my favourite screenings of ours but also that we also screen a Christmas horror.

This year we were lucky to hold the event at Kiosk in Sherwood, one of our favourite eating establishments and set within a converted shipping container.

This year’s film was the completely bonkers ‘Don’t Open Till Christmas’ from Mondo Macabro. As usual, neither of us had seen this one before so, like the audience, we were completely in the dark. An unusual, yet oddly compelling little British horror providing as many laughs as sly glances at the occasional well orchestrated set piece.

After some initial glitches, leading to audience member, Chris, to save the day (thanks Chris) everything went by rather smoothly. It helped that everyone was kept fed and watered by Beth and India at Kiosk who made ‘posh cinema food’ especially for the event.

2013, although a crap year for everyone on the whole, was kind to our poxy little film club. We honestly couldn’t have thought of a better way to send off the year.
