Terror comes back home to the Tramshed for another double helping of cult classics!
A message from the folks at Fractured Visions:
Fractured Visions are pleased to present two brilliant examples of a much maligned genre in American cinema – the slasher! Written-off in the wake of the brutality of FRIDAY THE 13th in 1980, the once respectable genre that gave audiences BLACK CHRISTMAS and HALLOWEEN was swiftly dismissed by critics and movie snobs alike as mindless violence aimed at the simplistic teen market. We beg to differ.
First up is…
THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW
Flirtatious young sorority sisters who are days away from graduation set out to throw one last decadent celebration. Unbeknownst to them, the strict matron of their house hides a horrendous secret thought long buried. A gruesome accident is witnessed by a hideous fiend, hidden within the once nurturing dwelling, which triggers a rampage of death and destruction. Before the end, the peril faced by this sisterhood will push them to the brink of annihilation. And rivers of blood will drown all who enter…The House On Sorority Row.
1982’s THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW is a taut thriller reminiscent of the finest Brian De Palma had to offer. As influential as the films that preceded it, there would be no I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER franchise without it, this slice of frat fright remains as gripping and chilling now as it ever was!
We’ll be closing the night with…
JUST BEFORE DAWN
Five friends set out for a weekend camping excursion to drink, frolic and skinny dip on an isolated piece of land one of them has inherited. Despite ominous warnings from the local forest ranger, strange backwoods families and a hollering drunken hunter claiming to have witnessed his friend’s evisceration by the hands of “Demons”, they trek further into the foliage. Beautifully shot and, extremely eerie and with a horrifying twist that will make you wonder… Will any of them survive those dark hours Just Before Dawn?
JUST BEFORE DAWN is the finest example of the ‘backwoods’ horror genre this side of John Boorman’s legendary DELIVERANCE. Dismissed upon release due it’s slasher trappings, JUST BEFORE DAWN now stands as one of the greatest cult entries from the 80s, find out why on September 24th when we gladly bring these films back to the big screen where they belong!
As usual we’ll be offering a wide and whacky selection of vintage trailers and the fine folk at Tramshed will be serving up cold beers to help calm your nerves as Fractured Visions unleash back-to-back carnage on Cardiff once more.
