WARNING: Things are getting seriously scary in Derby


THINGS are getting seriously scary in Derby as the city stakes its claim as the UK capital of horror – with a 24-hour monster movie marathon.

The DMP Summer Scare-A-Thon hits the screen at city centre arts venue QUAD on June 3, with no fewer than 14 horror classics in a back-to-back binge.

Billed as the “ultimate cinematic horror experience”, all the movies will be shown uncut and digitally remastered but there’ll be much more than that.

Organisers are promising horror movie trivia, prize giveaways, drinking games, classic horror trailer shows, and classic grindhouse intermission pauses.
