Dir: Jorge Grau | 1974 | Italy / Spain | 95 mins
Cast: Cristina Galbó, Ray Lovelock, Arthur Kennedy

This cult 70s Spanish/Italian zombie horror is endlessly inventive. Set in the Lake District (though filmed in Italy) it focuses on hippie-ish George (Ray Lovelock) and Londoner Edna (Cristina Galbó), who find themselves harassed by a local police investigator and framed for a series of terrifying murders: only to find that these heinous crimes have been committed by the undead, brought to life through mysterious means… Full of impressive set pieces and filmed with an countercultural, punkish verve – as well as a generous dose of Italo-Spanish gore – it’s beautifully realised, eerie and unconventionally thrilling.

All times listed are the programme start time unless otherwise stated. Films start approx 30 mins after the programme start time.
