This Christmas, Splendid Cinema offers up Yuletide horror!

This Christmas, Splendid Cinema offers up Yuletide horror!

On 9 December, Splendid Cinema is very proud to be screening a brand new Christmas horror film, Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Homecoming ! Writer/Director James Plumb will also be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.

The abandoned home of Wilfred Butler, a wealthy but troubled man who committed suicide in 1987, has been willed to his grandson, Jeffrey. Just before Christmas 2012, many years after Wilfred’s death, Jeffrey and his lawyer appear in town to negotiate the sale of the property. But an Axe wielding maniac has set up residence in the house, and he doesn’t take kindly to strangers.

Shot in 10 days, in and around Swansea and Carmarthen, this is a Welsh horror film, through and through. Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Homecoming is loosely based on the 1972 British thriller film of the same name, but updates the action to 2012 and is filled with fanboy & fangirl references by one of British horror’s newest auteurs. The film stars Adrienne King, star of the first two Friday the 13th films.

Co-writer and director James Plumb will be on hand for a Q&A session after the film.  This is an amazing opportunity for students of Film Studies, Screenwriting and Digital Film Production to meet and talk with a working independent filmmaker.

Here’s the trailer:

All films are screened at the Worcester Arts Workshop (21 Sansome Street, Worcester). Box office opens at 7pm on film nights and the films begin at 7:30.  Café Bliss is also open for a pre-show treat.
