Texas Chainsaw 3D

Texas Chainsaw 3D
A young woman travels to Texas to collect her inheritance unaware that this includes her deranged cousin Leatherface. This is a 3D horror about a chainsaw wielding maniac so expect plenty of blood and limbs to come flying at your face.

Hors Satan/Outside Satan (limited release)
“A miracle reveals an unseen side of a village loner.” I honestly am struggling to figure out what the plot of this film is. I think it involves the devil and two people wandering the French coast. “Contains strong sex, language and a brief gory image.”

Repulsion (limited re-release)
Polanski’s 1965 horror gets a re-release for those who want to start their year watching a young woman being terrorised in her apartment. The film was originally rated X, then 18, and is now a 15 showing how we are becoming more and more relaxed about “strong violence and sexual violence”. Give it another 20 years and this will be a PG simply because it doesn’t feature any nudity.

Chinatown (limited re-release)
The BFI have another Polanski classic up their sleeves today. This time is it his 1974 neo-noir classic that is often found on lists of the best films of all time. Naturally I haven’t seen it but maybe now is the perfect opportunity.

Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House 2011 Line-up Revealed

Yesterday Somerset House released the list of films in this year’s Film4 Summer Screen. We missed out last year and frankly I can’t figure out why. With the amazing line-up this year I can imagine a fair few trips will be made.

Things worth getting silly about are a Die Hard and Attack the Block double bill, Scott Pilgrim vs The World and The Princess Bride. Possibly most exciting of all is a Gremlins, Troll Hunter and Tremors triple bill. Watch this trailer if you aren’t excited by this idea.

Before each screening is an hour-long talk from the Behind the Screen series, well worth a look as they have the likes of Joe Cornish in attendance.

The full schedule of films is below and we’d love to see you there sitting on the floor, outdoors and at night, among fellow film fans and quality cinema.
