THINGS TO DO THIS WEEK: Watch a double-feature
Filmreakter is holding its third late night double feature of cult schlock-horror films at the Cinémathèque.

The July programme is a real riot, featuring two of the most entertaining horror comedies of the mid-1908s. First up is Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator, an adaptation of an HP Lovecraft story transposed to a US medical school. Jeffrey Combs – once in Luxembourg to star in sci-fi thriller feardotcom – plays “budding mad scientist” Herbert West who is keen to find fame by developing a serum that will bring the dead back to life. As the great drive-in critic Joe Bob Briggs would say “blood does flow, heads do roll.”

The second film on the bill is Dan O’Bannon’s black comedy gore fest The Return of The Living Dead. The film is an unashamed satire of George Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead, but carried off with such tongue-in-cheek panache and exuberant style that fans of the original movie would care not one jot.

In keeping with the spirit of the double-feature nostalgia, entrance costs just 6€ and includes a free drink in the interval.
