A Frightfully Good Time For Everyone This Halloween at Nerve Centre

A Frightfully Good Time For Everyone This Halloween at Nerve Centre

Nerve Centre joins Derry~Londonderry’s world famous Halloween celebrations with a film programme packed with frights for all ages.

On Monday, October 31 and Tuesday, November 1, little monsters and goblins (and larger ones too) are invited along to Nerve Centre’s cinema to enjoy one of its family-friendly films in the new Beanbag Cinema.

Families have the choice between the Disney classic Hocus Pocus, the stop-motion animations ParaNorman and Corpse Bride or Roald Dahl’s The Witches. Each screening is followed by exciting and engaging digital workshops aimed at introducing children to filmmaking. Spaces are limited so booking early is advised.

In 1999, The Blair Witch Project shocked and confused cinema-goers, many who believed its ‘found footage’ was real. Seventeen years later, the Nerve Centre will host a special screening of the renowned psychological horror film on Friday, October 28 for a whole new generation of teenagers in the Beanbag Cinema.

The adult programme includes horrors such as The Boy (Monday 31 October). When Greta takes a job as a nanny she soon discovers that her young charge is a life-sized doll that they family treat like a real boy as a way of coping with the death of their child 20 years earlier. In When the Lights Went Out (Wednesday 26 October) a young family discovers that their new house is inhabited by a violent poltergeist known as ‘The Black Monk’, while The Forest (Tuesday 25 October) starring Natalie Dormer is set in the legendary Aokigahara Forest, a real-life place in Japan where people go to end their lives. It has been described as ‘teeth grindingly scary… one of the best horrors in recent years’.

Tickets for all films and workshops are available from the Nerve Centre box office or www.nervecentre.org. Prepare to be SPOOKED!
