Show your support for some home grown horror when Citadel comes round!

Citadel

“One of the year’s most engrossing horror film…Terrifying”

IGN

“An eerie atmospheric strong debut…truly scary

Fangoria

“An incredibly well shot, terrifying and freakish horror drama that’s loaded with violence, scares and intensity”

Bloody Disgusting

Directed by Ciaran Foy. Starring Aneurin Barnard, James Cosmo, Wunmi Mosaku and Jake Willson.

The dilapidated suburbia of Edenstown casts a shadow over Tommy Cowley’s life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he now finds himself terrorized by the same mysterious hooded gang, who seem intent on taking his baby daughter.

Torn between the help of an understanding nurse and a vigilante priest, he discovers that to be free of his fears, he must finally face the demons of his past and enter the one place that he fears the most…the abandoned tower block known as the CITADEL.

Basically there’s four preview screenings of the new Scottish horror movie CITADEL on Tuesday, July 9th.
ABERDEEN CINEWORLD UNION SQUARE, 7.40pm
EDINBURGH, CINEWORLD, FOUNTAIN PARK, 8.10pm
FALKIRK, CINEWORLD, CENTRAL RETAIL PARK, 7.40pm
GLASGOW CINEWORLD, RENFREW STREET, 8pm

EZC Presents – Biker Night

Posted in Movie night, News on September 21st, 2010 by admin – Be the first to comment

Joey, do you like movies about bikers?

STONE (1974, dir. Sandy Harbutt)

Members of the Grave Diggers Motorcycle Club are being picked off one by one, so they allow an undercover cop to infiltrate their gang to find out why and it’s not long before he finds he fits right into the degenerate lifestyle. Featuring some breathtaking motorbike stunts, including the legendary motorbike off a cliff scene, this is a classic slice of Ozplotation.

WEREWOLVES ON WHEELS (1971, dir. Michel Levesque)

A biker gang visits a monastery where they encounter black-robed monks engaged in worshipping Satan. When the monks try to persuade one of the female bikers, Helen, to become a satanic sacrifice the bikers smash up the monastery and leave. The monks have the last laugh, though, as Helen, as a result of the satanic rituals, is now possessed and at night changes into a werewolf, with dire results for the biker gang. Werewolves, bikers and devil worshipping monks, what else do you need in a movie?
