AMC, Great Northern Warehouse, Manchester, UK

Set in the iconic Great Northern Warehouse in Manchester, AMC is a 16-screen, state of the art cinema complex.

Soon, 2 of the UK's most established horror websites, UK HORROR SCENE and THE SLAUGHTERED BIRD, will be taking it over for 2 days to bring you the best in independent horror.

Join us at Triple Six Horror Fest!

The Triple Six Horror Film Festival have announced that their first special guest will be the groundbreaking director Richard Stanley who will be with them for the entire weekend. PLUS they will be showing his debut feature Hardware (1990) on 35mm followed by a full Q&A with Richard.

Hardware is a totally unique, visually stunning feature that needs to be seen on the big screen. Aesthetically compared to Gilliam & Jodorowsky and with a real 1990's man vs machine mentality that summed up the age when technology was becoming an essential part of life not a luxury, along with a stunning industrial score, Hardware is a mix of horror, sci-fi and much more. Rarely seen on the big screen ,especially in 35mm, this will be an amazing one-off experience !!

The full line-up is as follows
  • Hardware (1990) in 35mm followed by live Q&A with Richard Stanley.
  • Quarries (2016) European Premiere
  • Unkindness of Ravens (2016)
  • The Chair (2016) UK Premiere
  • Cruel Summer (2016)
  • Tone Death (2017) World Premiere
  • Forest of Lost Souls (2016) UK Premiere
  • Offensive (2016) Northern Premiere
  • Hounds of Love (2016) English Premiere

 

  Music Hall...

Old words blacked out by Talking Pictures TV


Link Here 14th April 2017

gh elliottAfter watching two broadcasts of Music Hall (1934), one in the morning and one late at night, on the Talking Pictures TV channel. I noticed that certain words were blanked out of the performance by GH Elliott.

After a small bit of research I realised that the word coon had been removed twice on both occasions.

Being a fan of music hall I was rather disappointed.

Does this mean that language other than swearing will be regularly removed whether shown before, or after the Watershed, whether in context, or not?

I have written to Ofcom to complain, but as you are aware they very rarely write back.

New Zealand's government announces a new chief censor to replacement Andrew Jack

andrew jackNew Zealand's Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dunne has announced the appointment of David Shanks as the Chief Censor of Film and Literature for a three-year term. Dunne said:

Mr Shanks is a senior public servant who has held roles as chief legal officer and a number of acting deputy chief executive positions.

His senior management and legal experience in the public sector will be of great benefit to the Classification Office.

I would also like to acknowledge the significant work of outgoing Chief Censor, Dr Andrew Jack and thank him for his passion and commitment over the last six years.

During his time, Dr Jack has overseen a number of complex classification decisions that have involved careful balancing of freedom of expression with avoiding potential harm, and continued to advance the public debate about censorship issues in a modern society.

The Chief Censor is responsible for protecting New Zealanders from material likely to cause harm while balancing the important right to freedom of expression.

The Office of Film and Literature Classification is an independent Crown entity, established under the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act 1993 to examine and censor publications, including films, videos, books, magazines, sound recordings and computer files.
