The movie partnership of legendary horror film director John Carpenter and Hollywood favourite Kurt Russell produced several films through the 1980's and 90's, we're celebrating this movie duo with a back-to-back screening of a pair of films holding a cult status only matched by their levels of danger from another world - The Thing, and Big Trouble In Little China.
2017 marks the 35th anniversary of The Thing - set in the winter of 1982, a twelve man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discover alien life buried in the snow.
Soon unfrozen, the form changing alien takes host of members of the team, picking them off one by one, in a bid to survive and escape in this landmark sci-fi horror.
Then to round off the evening, we head to the streets of San Francisco's Chinatown, for an adventure the likes of which you've never seen with Big Trouble In Little China.
Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is a loud-mouthed truck driver who finds himself caught up in a supernatural conflict, when his friend's girlfriend is kidnapped to be married to a 2000 year old evil spirit named Lo Pan, who intends to break his curse and gain a new physical body - cue martial arts, bullets, monsters and one-liners, as Jack battles to save the world from evil, and hopefully get his truck back.
Hosted at the Abbeydale Picture House - Sheffield's Grade II listed 1920's picture palace cinema, always bringing a sense of occasion, and with a fully stocked up bar this double-bill feature will provide sensational Saturday evening entertainment.
Following our screenings of Bruce Lee's Enter The Dragon and our anniversary celebration of Evil Dead 2, we hope you'll join us again this coming bank holiday weekend for a supernatural double-bill feature of true cult classics.
