Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 106: Thu Apr 16

Popcorn (Herrier, 1991): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 8.45pm

This film, part of the Cult strand at BFI Southbank, also screens on 19th April. You can find all the details here.

Here is the BFI introduction:
The spirit of William Castle haunts this affectionate B-movie tribute, in which an all-night horror marathon at a dilapidated movie theatre becomes a veritable bloodbath for a gang of ill-fated film students. This curious precursor to the self-reflexive horrors that flooded 90s genre cinema is hugely fun and highly inventive.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
