Bad Candy (18)
Monday 27th September / 3:45pm
Bad Candy follows local Halloween stories of myth and lessons learned in the community of New Salem. With its annual Psychotronic FM Halloween show, re-enactment radio DJ’s Chilly Billy (Slipknot’s Corey Taylor) and Paul (Gremlins' Zach Galligan) weave tales of the supernatural of years gone by. In this small town it’s a grimy ending for most, but will a few good souls survive?Book Tickets

Dir: Ken Russell
In 1816 the poets Byron and Shelley, Byron’s doctor Polidori and Shelley’s mistress Mary Godwin (later to become his wife) gathered in a villa on Lake Geneva and dared each other to write ghost stories. The results were Polidori’s ‘The Vampire’ and Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’. In Ken Russell’s recreation of that fateful night, the young Romantics hold a demonic seance and descend into a sex and opium-fuelled nightmare world.
