Join LUC at the spa centre cinema on Wednesday 8th October from 7pm for two darkly entertaining cult gems from 1990 – a time when visionary directors like Richard Stanley and Sam Raimi didn’t have to water down their films to make sure of a 12A rating. In addition to these two great movies, there will be a short selection of underground shorts competing for the Aspect Consultants LUC Short Film Prize 2014 and an intermission to stretch your legs. Tickets are just £5 for this movie marathon for the discerning film fan.
HARDWARE (1990) is an amazingly stylish post-apocalyptic sci-fi horror movie. The plot involves the seemingly shutdown head of a army robot which reactivates and rebuilds itself after it is used in an art installation – violent problems ensue. An overlooked masterpiece with a belting soundtrack and cameos from Lemmy and Iggy Pop – this is not to be missed.
DARKMAN (1990) Made between Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness, this twisted superhero tale contains bucketloads of Sam Raimi’s inventive camera tricks and hallucinogenic visuals. Liam Neeson has never been better than he is in the title role: an unhinged, genius scientist taking cunning revenge on the gangsters who burned him alive and left him for dead.
