Halloween film marathon to be hosted by The Shed

By Alex Leadbitter

On Halloween night, The Shed is hosting a film marathon where they will be showing and range of horror movies throughout the day.

Beginning at noon on October 31, films will be playing back to back until 12 o’clock midnight with five minute breaks in between each film.

The films that will be shown will get progressively scarier as the night progresses so for those that turn up at the start of the showings won’t be frightened too much.

Elisabeth Barker-Carley, owner of The Shed said: “We wanted to offer a place for people to turn up and enjoy Halloween without having to stress about having to go out and getting really drunk.

“They can show up here, sit down with their friends and just have a really cool night of watching horror movies, and it’s free entry.”

The Shed currently offer a monthly film night that they call ‘Shedflix and Chill’ where they show a wide variety of films on the second Thursday of every month.

Miss Barker-Carley continued: “We want this to kick off the first of a monthly horror night because the Shed is a club on Tuesdays and Thursdays so we wanted to do something a bit more easy going.

“We’re the only small venue to have a 15 foot LED TV and it’s curved so you’ll be able to get a great view no matter where you’re sitting.

“It’s an amazing chance to see classic old school films on a modern TV and sound system.”

Although they are subject to change, as of now the films that are showing are Halloween, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Final Destination, Insidious, Nightmare on Elm Street and Amityville Horror.

“We’re encouraging fancy dress; all the staff will be dressed up and we’ve set the venue up with all kinds of Halloween decorations but most importantly we just want everyone to have a fun time.”
