LHC present BRAINDEAD (1992)
We are incredibly excited to announce that our next movie screening will be Peter Jackson’s classic: BRAINDEAD!
In 1992 a young Peter Jackson created one of cinema’s most riotous comedy horrors! As his third feature film, he’d really honed his directorial style and built a team around him capable of delivering incredible practical FX which stand up 26 years later.
Braindead is a love story, which sees our unlikely hero, Lionel, attempt to woo the beautiful Paquita. However cultivating this young romance proves to be difficult for this Mummy’s Boy who struggles to cut the apron strings. Then when Lionel’s overbearing Mum gets bitten by a Sumatran Rat Monkey at the local zoo, EVERYTHING begins to change…
Although, calling Braindead a love story neglects to mention it’s true nature – Braindead (as the title suggests) is a zombie movie. It has comedy and gore by bucketload – several thousand buckets of gore to be accurate. Indeed, the term ‘Splatterfest’ does not do justice to the outrageous amount of viscera and fluids on display!
Braindead is a true classic: Grotesque, hilarious, and utterly relentless!
As you know we always like to do things a bit differently at the Liverpool Horror Club, so we are going old school and will to be screening the movie on VHS! (expect trailers from back in the day)
We love to bring our members something a bit special too – we are going to be joined at the screening by the amazing STUART CONRAN who was an FX artist on the movie. Stuart has a plethora of filmwork under his belt (Hellraiser, Shaun of the Dead, Attack the Block and more). He’ll be chatting to us about his time on set and also the legacy and impact this film has had on generations of horror fans.
Maybe you’ve seen this movie a dozen times or maybe you weren’t even born when this film was released – you still need to come to this screening. There is nothing quite like watching a horror film sat in an audience of like minded people. Join ussss…..
