The Ungodly(Coming Soon...)

This action-packed psychological thriller from the producer of cult smash "Timecrimes" takes you into the twisted depths of brutality. This is the human animal at his most terrifying.

When a struggling filmmaker, Mickey Gravatski (Wes Bentley, "American Beauty"), stumbles upon a diabolical serial killer carrying out another of his unspeakable crimes, he turns to blackmail, using footage of this madman in a disturbing new film project.

What follows is a nerve-shredding psychological game of cat and mouse between the filmmaker and his dangerous new subject. To save himself, Mickey must confront the darkest side of not only the killer's nature, but his own.

Assault Of Darkness (Coming Soon...)

A 2000-year old mummified murder victim is disturbed from his hellish grave and rises from the dead seeking retribution for years trapped in purgatory. With his body unable to decay and his soul unable to reach heaven or hell it begins to wreak havoc on a group of strangers who unwittingly share a guilty secret. Their only hope of salvation lies with a lone hunter, a brutal killer with a dark past of his own. Only he can confront the evil out of the darkness and send it back to the hell from which it came.

Alone in the dark, this group of misfit souls must confront misfortune and mayhem as this mysterious victim seeks vengeance on the dark secrets of their past.

Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus (Coming Soon...)

From the depths of the ocean they came for the most titanic struggle ever witnessed. Two mythical beasts, defying the laws of nature and threatening the entire of humanity in a vicious battle to certain death!

History will name the encounter: Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus!

80s pop sensation Debbie Gibson stars as maverick marine biologist Emma MacNeil. She witnesses a catastrophic collision with a rapidly melting glacier, unleashing two enormous behemoths trapped in the ice for millions of years locked in terrible, mortal combat!

With the help of a military specialist tasked with destroying these beasts, MacNeil must stop the onslaught of disaster and mayhem. Ships are annihilated, planes fall from the sky, bridges crumble, cities flee for their lives and the world stands on the brink of disaster at the fins and tentacles of the most fearsome monsters on the planet.

The fight of a thousand millennia is about to kick off!

Yeah, they sound really dire - all except Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, which sounds so bad that I might just like it - I do enjoy the occasional over the top Godzilla type film!
Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a London screening for that one (unless they have made a mistake in their listings)

credit crunch is just a marketing gimmick they are using to desperately promote some straight to video films

Has anyone ever been to any of these shows? They are really late in the night, right? How many people have turned up for those who may have gone?

Hi my friend's sister has been to the Lowry one and about 20 people went. I don't do scarey and then I wouldn't fancy going to the carpark afterwards, that's always really quiet at night. I confess I'm a wimp :Embarrassed:
