Cork Cineclub Kicks off!
Just letting ye all know there is a screening this Thursday (8th April 2010) night at 8pm, get there earlier as seats are limited. The nights feature is The Shout:
Idyllic Devon locations. Hot, liquid afternoons; a game of cricket watched by ‘mad’ trees, the air punctuated by the cries of peacocks and a terrifying story of a man from the outback, who exercised the right to kill his children and who can kill anyone with the Terror Shout. A man (Alan Bates) who infiltrates the lives of a couple who live in a remote cottage by a rocky coast. A man who takes the wife (Susannah York) as his own property leaving the husband (John Hurt) utterly powerless, until he finds the man’s soul trapped in a pebble. The shout itself …truly disturbing. The ending brings both the story and the the cricket game together in spectacular fashion. At the close of play, you realize you’ve witnessed a straight horror story that is grounded in mundane reality.
Should be a good one.
