35mm enthusiast Josh Saco puts on some of the most drool-inducing exploitation and horror events in London (UK) under the banner “Cigarette Burns Cinema” (like their Facebook page HERE!), with monthly screenings at The Rio, bi-monthly screenings at The Prince Charles as well as a bevy of special one-offs featuring rare 35mm prints spanning an impressive list of faves including PROFONDO ROSSO, THE KEEP, PSYCHOMANIA, WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?, EQUINOX, MS. 45 and more – always featuring amazing custom poster art by Silver Ferox and friends (see the gallery of all the previous posters HERE)
After a screening of one of the unsung classics of the 80s slasher canon – Fred Walton’s APRIL FOOL’S DAY – next Friday April 4th (details HERE), next up on the Cigarette Burns calendar is John Hancock’s moody madwoman film LET’S SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH (full disclosure: it will be introduced by yours truly) on Thursday April 18th at London’s ICA Gallery (details and tickets HERE).
To commemorate the event, Silver Ferox has turned out a STUNNING retro poster which you can see above.
