(dir: Benjamin Christensen, Sweden 1922, 87 mins)

Brace yourself for a voyage into the underworld, as Reece Shearsmith (The League of Gentlemen, Inside No.9) and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Horne (a regular star turn at previous Flatpacks) team up to create a live score for a supernatural oddity from cinema’s early years.

Once banned in the USA and unseen for decades, Häxan (dir: Benjamin Christensen, 1922) blends horror, documentary, animation and woodcuts to paint a lurid picture of witchcraft through the ages. Featuring the director himself as a disturbingly Grinch-like Devil, the film immerses us into a world of torture and superstition while suggesting that witch persecution was a medieval response to mental illness.

Conjuring up a storm on piano, theremin, percussion and much more, one-man band Stephen Horne is here joined for one night only by actor, writer and horror devotee Reece Shearsmith to perform Christensen’s original narration.

Door open at 19:30
Tickets: £15 / £13

This diabolical evening is just one of many treats in store from the 12th edition of the Flatpack Film Festival (13-22 April).
