The Lost Boys vs American Werewolf in Picturehouse Halloween showdown

The age-old battle between Vampires and Werewolves continues this October at Picturehouse Cinemas, as they screen a special Halloween event where you decide who wins.

Their Werewolves Vs Vampires Double Bill pits An American Werewolf In London
against the classic vampire film The Lost Boys. Both movies screen at the same time so you can choose which you prefer.

Both are followed by What We Do In The Shadows and then there’s a special Halloween After Party!

This all takes place at the Picturehouse Central on Saturday 29th October, from 7.00pm.

Join in for a Halloween howling, two-fanged double bill followed by a ghoulish after party into the early hours!

Come dressed in your best vampire of werewolf costume and watch either classic An American Werewolf In London or The Lost Boys followed by a communal screening (for Werewolves and Vampires) of the hilarious mockumentary What We Do in The Shadows.

Book a ticket for either the Werewolf Double Bill or the Vampire Double Bill and enjoy a cinematic Halloween extravaganza like no other.

Halloween After Party – in the bar, from 11.00pm – til late.

An American Werewolf In London
Dir John Landis, 1981, US
Starring David Naughton, Griffin Dunne, Jenny Agutter

A true cult classic, John Landis’s ground breaking An American Werewolf In London follows a young American tourist who gets attacked by a werewolf on the Yorkshire Moors. Following the attack he travels to London, where the transition takes its full gruesome form. Heralded for its special effects, and laced with dark humour, An American Werewolf In London is a landmark of the genre.

The Lost Boys
Dir Joel Schumacher, 1987, US
Starring Jason Patrick, Corey Haim, Keifer Sutherland, Corey Feldman

Relive the Californian vampire saga The Lost Boys, starring Jason Patric and Corey Haim as two brothers who move to the beach community of Santa Carla. Soon they become part of a hard-partying vampire gang led by Kiefer Sutherland. A staple of cult cinema, The Lost Boys is a wildly entertaining trip packed with iconic lines and moments plus a searing ’80s soundtrack.
