Bite Me: A Queer Horror Double Bill
Sun 19 Sep @ 4.00pm
4 hours
Film Screening
Filly Brook

Join us in the back room of the Filly Brook where we’ll be creating a pop-up queer horror space for Leytonstone Loves Film 2021.

Last Frame Film Club and Radiant Circus are reviving the classic Sunday Tea Dance time slot for anyone who wants a bit more out of their weekend. Settle down in the darkness with us to enjoy some cult, classic and contemporary horror, starting with a double bill of vampire movies we’re calling Bite Me.

Tony Scott’s high camp melodrama The Hunger (1983) features screen icons Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, and Susan Sarandon and is all about “a love triangle [that] develops between a beautiful yet dangerous vampire, her cellist companion, and a gerontologist*”.

We’ll follow that with Ana Lily Amirpour’s modern-day Iranian skateboarding indie kid, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014). In the Iranian ghost-town Bad City, a place that reeks of death and loneliness, the townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampire.

That’s plenty to get our teeth stuck into…. but we want this event to be the first of many so let’s take the relaxed social time between screenings to sample the gorgeous craft beverages of the Filly Brook and get to know each other (but not in a creepy way…)
