Halloween is a classic 1970’s horror film set in 1960’s Illinois. Michael Myers, a psychiatric patient, has returned to his childhood town where, as a six year old, he killed his own sister.

If someone mentions The Evil Dead to you, what’s the first thing you think about? Zombies, or Bruce Campbell’s Chin? (check out his bio.. If Chins Could Kill!) Either way, they are both pretty scary… The Evil Dead was the cult horror film of the 1980s and in celebration of this we are showing the trilogy. Kicking off at 10.45pm and finishing at 3.30am, zombies will take over FACT’s Screen 1 for a whole six hours!
"NO GORE FOR ME! I PREFER MY BADDIES TO BE EMOTIONALLY COMPLEX"
