Derby Film Festival Presents

Paracinema – Spookies

After their car breaks down, a group of travellers find themselves stranded in a remote part of New England. After taking shelter in a spooky old mansion, complete with a graveyard, they discover a Ouija board and decide to spend the night attempting to summon some spirits. But the group soon learns that playing with the forces of black magic isn’t fun and games, and it’s not long before they’re head to head with all sorts of demonic creatures, shape shifters, and other forms of evil, all of whom are more than happy to pick them off in the most gruesome of ways. AVAILABLE TO RENT 19 - 25 NOVEMBER.

Of all the bizarre horror films made in the 1980s, Spookies easily ranks among the weirdest. Produced by Michael Lee, founder of the adored UK label VIPCO, the film became a fan favourite due to its expertly rendered creature effects and its bizarre production history.
