Premonition *UK Premiere*
(Norio Tsuruta, Japan 2004)
The future’s pretty scary, especially if it’s bad and you know it’s going to happen. J-horror specializes in the creepiness of nasty predictions, so when a professor sees a scrap of newspaper from the near future with an unpleasant story related to his family we know we’re in for a chilling time…
Fri Sept 9, 11:15pm
Sars Wars *UK Premiere*
(Taweewat Wantha, Thailand 2004)
A mutant strain of the SARS virus infects an apartment block in Bangkok, turning people into flesh-eating zombies. Yes, it’s your first Thai zombie movie experience, and frankly one of the most ludicrous – and ludicrously enjoyable – films ever made. Did we mention there’s also a Star Wars pastiche in there somewhere?
Sat Sept 10, 11:15pm
Also showing Thu Sept 15, 9:00pm Genesis Whitechapel
Say Yes *UK Premiere*
(Kim Seong-hong, South Korea 2001)
The Hitcher meets The Vanishing in a vicious and atmospheric psycho-thriller that keeps the tension at fever pitch until a truly astonishing denouement. A UK first for one of the most gripping Korean thrillers of recent years.
Fri Sept 16, 11:15pm
Gagamboy *UK Premiere*
(Erik Matti, The Philippines 2003)
The movie Spiderman should have been. How come Marvel Comics never came up with Cockroachman? Someone in the Philippines realized what the world of superheroes had been missing. Here, for the rest of us, is the – quite ridiculous – answer.

31st Jan 05 Peter Cushing appears to have modestly declined from participating in any of this kung fu nonsense although there is a charming battle later on when he gets a little carried away with a big flaming branch...
