An iconic Hammer horror film set and filmed in Weymouth and Portland starring Shirley Ann Field and a young and superbly glowering Oliver Reed. Like many Hammer horror films it deals with outsiders who find themselves enmeshed in the peculiar goings-on in a strange place. However, this  predictable genre is turned on its head, in this case by transforming what at first seems an odd but basically conventional thriller into a movie about repressed incestuous impulses, fear of nuclear destruction, distrust of government, the inhumanity of scientific research, existential angst and the social disintegration of the modern world - don’t miss!

Tickets: £2.50 in advance or £3.50 on the door
