OVER THE TOP 14th September at The Town House

Our grubby off-shoot, the Masochist Film Club presents the sweaty, awkward, cocaine-fuelled mess that is 1987’s Over The Top. Screening at The Town House on Monday 14th September, we are delighted that this will form part of the brilliant Scalarama – The Unofficial Month Of Cinema.

Over the top POSTER_FLYERJoin Sylvester Stallone as truck driver Lincoln Hawk (or Hawx? or Hawks?), on a journey to re-connect with his estranged son, whilst also trying to win a fortune (and a new truck) through the surprisingly popular world of competitive arm wrestling.

Racking up an impressive three nominations at the Golden Raspberry Awards, Over The Top is a film that is far, far, far worse than you may remember. Stallone only agreed to do it when he got offered a record $12 million, although as he has a writing credit he should probably shoulder some of the blame.

Featuring acting that would make a drama teacher self harm, sub-plots that make less sense than Kanye West’s performance at Glastonbury and the kind of parenting that should end up with at least one person in prison, Over The Top is a crazed treat for the discerning film masochist.

Tickets for this intimate screening at the Town House are just £5 each, you can buy them now from wegottickets. Space is limited so get in quick to avoid disappointment. Doors 7.30pm – Film 8.00pm

SAMURAI COP screens in Leamington Spa on Monday 11th May

“You Have The Right To Remain Silent – Dead Silent”

LUC’s evil off-shoot is back with a screening of another so-bad-its-amazing classic. This time, brace yourself for the ne plus ultra of low budget action thrillers, SAMURAI COP.

Starring the elegantly coiffured Matt Hannon in the title role and featuring the late Robert Z’dar as the evil enforcer of the, frankly, odd Katana criminal cartel – this 1991 film will amaze, confuse and entertain in equal measure.

  • Karate fight scenes featuring people who clearly don’t know karate
  • An ongoing inability to wear clothes
  • Amazingly inappropriate workplace banter
  • The strangest waiter ever committed to film
  • The wig, oh my god, the wig.
  • A looming Lion head wall decoration that gets more screen time than most of the cast

Doors open at 7.30pm for this special event at The Town House where exciting modifications mean that there will be a really big screen for your viewing entertainment, as well as easily available alcoholic refreshment and free popcorn for all patrons. The cinematic entertainment will begin at 8pm sharp.

Tickets are £7.50 in advance or on the door – space is limited so please grab your tickets on line or arrive early to avoid disappointment. You can grab tickets at: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/317255
