Paracinema Presents

Ghost Story

Monday 6th May / 12:00pm

Revered, misunderstood and oft-discussed, Stephen Weeks’ rarely seen 1974 dreamlike chiller is the absolute definition of a cult British Horror film. Set in 1920’s England it tells of three former public schoolmates, Larry Dann, Murray Melvin (The Devils) and the enigmatic Vivian Mackerell (the inspiration for Bruce Robinson’s creation “Withnail”, seen here in his only major screen role), who reunite in a country mansion haunted by the spirit of insane former resident Marianne Faithfull (Girl On A Motorcycle). This screening will be introduced by Jake West & Marc Morris of Nucleus Films.

“A bold movie, full of ideas….draws on the spirit of Nigel Kneale in its conflation of the topics of science and the supernatural.” – David Dent – Bloody Flicks
