Red Screening – start: 19:30h
Beautiful gritty cinematography, great gore, inventive kills and superb use of a single location, Red Screening has it all. Stylistically it’s an obvious nod to giallo, with its black gloved killer, its Dario Argento movie posters and its synthesizer music. It’s a retro slasher for dark and rainy nights.  Click here for tickets and more info
