Capital Celluloid 2018 - Day 3: Wed Jan 3

New Year's Evil (Alston, 1980): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.40pm

This 35mm screening, which can also be seen on January 1st, is part of the Cult strand at BFI Southbank. You can find the full details here.

BFI introduction:
Appearing in the early stages of the 1980s slasher boom, this grisly blend of holiday cheer and bloody violence featured a particularly nifty plot device – a maniacal killer offs a new victim every time the clock strikes midnight in a different time zone. For those who enjoy their slaughter with a side of sleaze, there’s no better way to ring in the New Year.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
