Past Screenings

August's Screening - Event Horizon

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."
                                                                                   H.P. Lovecraft - The Call of Cthulhu

The second in our Lovecraft and Cosmic Horror screenings comes Paul W.S. Anderson's 1997 sci-fi horror film Event Horizon. It has been argued that Lovecraft's fiction is, at its core, science fiction told through the lens of horror and fantasy. Event Horizon touches on such Lovecraftian themes as the cold vastness of an uncaring universe, unimaginable terrors that lurk within the void and the frailty of the human mind.

We look forward to seeing you all on the night..

July Screening - H.P. Lovecraft's: Necronomicon

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."
H.P. Lovecraft 1927.

   Lovecraft's influence on modern horror is, arguably, without equal. Stephen King, Clive Barker, Guillermo Del Toro, Alan Moore, John Carpenter - all site Lovecraft as pivotal to their early exploration into the horror narrative. From July through through to September we will be screening films that explore the horrific core of Lovecraft's fiction: Cosmic Horror and the Fear of the Unknown.  The first of these films will be the 1994 anthology H.P. Lovecraft's: Necronomicon. A collection of 3 short films loosly based on some of Lovecraft's fiction, each with a different director (including Brian Yuzna and Christophe Gans) and wrappped around with Jeffrey Combs playing Lovecraft himself. Necronomicon will be screened on VHS as it has never recieved a DVD or BluRay release in Australia and was, in fact, only available on DVD in France on a now out of print edition. Each of the 3 screeinings will begin with an intoroduction to Lovecraft, Cosmic Horror and cinema.  We look forward to seeing you all on the night..
