Ain't It Cool Presents SINISTER takes place this Wednesday, October 3 at the rather plush five-star Charlotte Street Hotel in London. For the benefit of those who have perhaps been living under a rock for the last few days, this is the very first exclusive AICN event in the UK, and it will feature a screening of Scott Derrickson's SINISTER, co-written by none other than AICN's own Massawyrm, a film which, in my eyes, is the most genuinely frightening horror to come along in years. You can see the original post for the screening announcement HERE.
All available tickets were snatched up in no time at all, which isn't a bad start for our inaugural UK event. They were free, too, so while I can't technically say that the screening is a sell-out, I guess I can say it's a free-out. In other words, it's full, although in the event of cancellations (if you suddenly can't make it, please visit the SHOWFILMFIRST website and cancel your ticket(s) so they can be reallocated) you may wish to revisit our SHOWFILMFIRST page just in case any become available.
For those attending, all must be seated by 7pm sharp. You can find the Charlotte Street Hotel just north of Soho and Oxford Street. The address is 15-17 Charlotte Street, London W1T 1RJ. It's located a minute's walk from leafy Soho Square and the theatre district, within easy reach of the financial centre and is surrounded by some of London's best bars, restaurants and cafés if you're looking for something to do before or after the screening. It's also a short easterly walk away from Tottenham Court Road. The nearest tube station is Goodge Street.
I look forward to seeing you all there for this exclusive AICN event. It's an honour to be able to introduce readers to such a truly excellent film, and it couldn't be a more apt occasion on the run up to Halloween. A luxury screening room at a five-star hotel doesn't go amiss, either.
I couldn't wipe the goofy smile from my face when I saw SINISTER last month. It reminded me exactly why I love horror movies and of the power they can harbour. I can't wait to hear what you guys think of it. To whet your appetites further, here are a few clips:
