THE VOID
2016, 90 min, Dir: Jeremy Gillespie, Steven Kostanski

Daniel Carter (Aaron Poole) is a police officer who likes the humdrum nature of his life. A chance encounter with a bloodied figure in the woods sees him rushing to the hospital to save the injured man’s life - but he’s not alone. As strange figures from a cult slowly surround the hospital and lay siege, an ever-bigger threat looms inside as dead patients turn into something inhuman and Carter must lead a desperate band of survivors into the subterranean depths of the hospital to escape. Boasting stellar practical effects and fantastic creature design, THE VOID is an homage to such old masters of horror cinema as Carpenter and Cronenberg while also an entirely new beast in its own right.


THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES
1971, Park Circus/MGM, 94 min, USA, Dir: Robert Fuest

Director Robert Fuest, a veteran of TV series “The Avengers,” brings his flamboyant visual style and tongue-in-cheekiness to bear in this 1920s tale of the disfigured Dr. Anton Phibes (Vincent Price), a madman bent on vengeance after the accidental death of his wife. Trying to dodge various deadly biblical plagues along the way - Phibes’ preferred method for dispatching enemies - are Joseph Cotten, Terry-Thomas and Peter Jeffrey.
