Scarred for Life - Video Nasty Special
What better way to celebrate Halloween than with an evening dedicated to the golden age of the “Video Nasty”?
Stephen Brother stone and Dave Lawrence, authors of the hit Scarred For Life books, will be joined onstage by Bob Fischer of the Fortean Times to discuss the 1980s tabloid furore surrounding films like Zombie Flesh Eaters and The Evil Dead. And then, afterwards, there’ll be a genuine VHS screening (from an actual cassette!) of Abel Ferrara’s notorious 1979 slasher movie The Driller Killer. Come and help us adjust the tracking... and whatever you do, don’t tell Mary Whitehouse.
