(the bar will be open before and after the screening).

Each film sways unsteadily along the spectrum between the uncanny, weird and horrifying. Although they span nearly 50 years and utilise these effects in very different ways, the three selected films all use psychological horror to draw us into an increasingly distorted consciousness. Mingled mundane rituals, their internal unravellings question everyday obsession and control. Join us as we explore horror as a slippery, adaptive and invasive mode in these masterpieces.

The club starts with ‘The Cremator’ on Tuesday 28 February from 7pm. This Czechoslovak comedic horror directed by Juraj Herz follows a crematorium manager in 1930s Prague who develops a dangerously liberatory view of his work. Interior and exterior horror are uniquely combined as Herz’s surreal and disorienting cinematography operates within the context of Karl’s growing entanglement with Nazi ideology.

We will send out 2-3 short texts beforehand to anyone who fancies reading around the film and related subjects and there will be the option of discussing these after the screening.

28.02.23 – THE CREMATOR (1969)
