This year's all-nighter films are:
AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON
Director: John Landis | United Kingdom | 1981 | 97 mins
35 years after its original release, we bring John Landis’ comic-horror masterpiece back to the big screen.
American backpackers Jack and David (Griffin Dunne and David Naughton) are arguably doomed from the first moment we see them nestling amongst the sheep in the back of a farmer’s truck, way before they stumble across the "friendly" locals in the Slaughtered Lamb. After falling prey to a vicious attack out on the moors, David wakes up in hospital in London and when the moon is full, it becomes clear that something is very, very wrong with "the Kessler boy."
With its legendary transformation sequences and astonishing set pieces filmed in the middle of the capital, An American Werewolf in London is still, at its bloody heart, a tragic love story that resonates as strongly with audiences today as it did way back in 1981.
THE LOST BOYS
Director: Joel Schumacher | USA | 1987 | 97 mins
The 80s vampire film that requires no introduction… join us as we travel to Santa Carla, California: murder capital of the world and home to a gang of vampires whose thirst for blood is equal to their fondness for hairspray. As the bloodsuckers feed on the local population, only Coreys Haim and Feldman stand in their way…
Director: Rod Daniel | USA | 1985 | 92 mins
Scott Howard is your average American teenager going through changes… his voice is getting deeper and he’s sprouting hair in unusual places, but when the moon is full he discovers the truth behind his transformation: he’s a werewolf. When his new found animal magnetism makes him a hit on the basketball court and an even bigger hit with the ladies, Scott has to make some hairy decisions about whether he wants to be popular as a man or as a beast.
Starring Michael J. Fox (straight off the back of Back To The Future) as the titular howling hero, Teen Wolf is perhaps the most gentle monster movie we’ve ever screened, but we couldn’t think of a more fun werewolf flick to screen at 4am than this one.
FROM DUSK TILL DAWN
Director: Robert Rodriguez | USA | 1996 | 108 mins
What better way to round out our 2016 allnighter than a journey south of the border to the Titty Twister? Fugitives Seth Gecko (George Clooney) and his brother Richard (Quentin Tarantino) are on the run from the law and head to Mexico to hide out overnight at a remote roadhouse bar, but unbeknown to them the place is infested with vampires intent on making the brothers and their hostages their next meal.
This gory, action-packed collaboration between director Robert Rodriguez and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino is a riot from start to finish, with standout performances from Harvey Keitel and Juliette Lewis, as well as cult icons Fred Williamson and Tom Savini.
Screening from an original 35mm Print.
