Saturday 4th of June 6pm
The Jekyll & Hyde Pub, Hanover Street

Everybody loves a good special guest appearance, and it has been ages since stars of celluloid have graced the Jekyll & Hyde Pub. But the wait is now over!

Caroline Munro, star of “The Golden Voyage of Sinbad”, “The Spy Who Loved Me”, and “Maniac” will be joining the Edinburgh B-Team for an evening of film watching, Q&Aing and signing.

The films on show this evening shall be as follows:

“Slaughter High” (1986) – A group of popular students play a cruel prank on a shy nerd resulting in a terrible accident. Years later a reunion is held where each of the students face a stalker killer who may be the same nerd out for revenge. I haven’t actually seen this movie yet, so that IMDB synopsis will have to do.

“Starcrash” (1978) – A pair of smugglers manage to pick up a castaway while running from the authorities, who turns out to be the only survivor from a secret mission to destroy a mysterious superweapon designed by the evil Count Zartham. The smugglers are soon recruited by the Emperor to complete the mission, as well as to rescue the Emperor’s son, who has gone missing. More importantly, this film has the Hoff with a lightsabre.

Entry to the night will be £4, but I am sure you’ll agree that it is very much worth it.

I hope to see you all there! And bring a friend!

Sunday 5th of June 12:30pm
The Banshee Labyrinth
29-35 Niddry Street

Edinburgh Zombie Club Presents:
Nightmare Houses & Flesh Eating Beasts: A horror all dayer with special guest, screenwriter David McGillivray, writer of Terror, Frightmare, House Of Whipcord & many more.
Sunday 5th June @ The Banshee Labyrinth, 29-35 Niddry Street, Edinburgh. EH1 1LG

Five pounds entry, first screening begins at 12.30pm, with the Q&A with David in the late afternoon.
We’ll be showing classic and cult horror gems throughout the entire day. Food and refreshments will be available in the pub and there will be breaks in between films. The films we will be showing are (with exact running order tbc):

*The Flesh Eaters (1964, dir. Jack Curtis)
An alcoholic actress, her personal assistant, and their pilot are downed on a secluded isle by bad weather, where a renegade Nazi scientist is using ocean life to develop a solvent for human flesh. The tiny flesh-eating sea critters that result certainly give our heroes a run for their money – and lives.

*House Of Whipcord (1974, dir. Pete Walker)
Anne Marie is a French model looking for fun and excitement and ends meeting the wrong man and being stranded in a women’s jail that seeks to reform “immoral” woman through torture and punishment.Grim, knowing, literate, uncompromising little dig at the British establishment and even sections of the population and it’s tabloids’ fascination with moral standards and the nasty little deviant punishments thought appropriate – in particular a good thrashing and if really necessary a good hanging. In anybody elses hands this would just be a basic women in prison film, but Pete Walker has created a tale of the conflict between the”moral” majority and the permissive society, across the generation gap, between the flog em and hang em right wing brigade and the liberal left.

*Followed by a Q & A with David McGillivray, then a couple of his more recent short films:

*In The Place Of The Dead (2006, dir. Keith Claxton)
A brief encounter in Marrakech conjures up an ancient Arabian demon.

*Mrs Davenport’s Throat (2005, dir. Keith Claxton)
A trip to Lisbon takes a murderous turn when a driver meets his mysterious passenger at the airport.

*Beasts- The Dummy
An episode of this rarely seen Nigel Kneale penned horror series, originally run on ITV in the mid 70s. ‘The Dummy’ is a dry piss-take on the fag end of the Hammer Horror cycle.The Dummy is the man-in-a-monster-suit star of a series of crappy-sounding B horror films, and now they’re making another one of them. Only the man in the suit is having a psychotic breakdown on-set, and, when he puts the monster head on, actually thinks he is the killer monster.

*The Beast Must Die (1974, dir. Paul Annett)
Tom Newcliffe, a rich businessman and expert hunter summons six guests to his huge country estate which he has rigged up with video cameras and a high-tech security system. He tells them and his surprised wife that they are all to stay over a weekend and that all of them will be kept on the estate during that weekend. For each guest, dead bodies have followed in their wake and the way that the dead have been murdered means that one of the guest is a werewolf and Tom has summoned his guests here to discover who it is and to hunt it down…

*Nightmares In A Damaged Brain (1981. dir. Romano Scavolini)
A mental-patient, who is troubled with horrible nightmares, has escaped from his hospital. Now on the streets he can’t help killing innocent people. But there is one family he is more than interested in and when he tries to kill them, he finds that it’s not that easy. One of the original video nasties!

Tickets are £5 and will be available from tonight in person from club members,or online at Our last all dayer sold out in advance, so we recommend you get your ticket as soon as possible as the capacity of The Banshee is fairly small. If neither of these options work for you, please contact us via and we’ll work something out.
