May 16, 2013 § Leave a comment
Running until the 2nd of June, GOMA are currently showing a retrospective of monster and horror movies. Showcasing almost 60 films, which include 1930s black and white horror films such as The Invisible Man (1933) and Frankenstein (1931), all the way to 1980s slasher flicks like Fright Night (1985) and Hellraiser (1987). The Gallery’s Monsters film program surveys the genre’s most popular films across six strands: Bloodthirsty Fiends; Zombies, Mutants and Shapeshifters; Misunderstood Monsters; Mad Doctors; Foreign Entities; and Monstrous Absurdities. GOMA’s monster movie extravaganza offers an opportunity to rediscover some of the genre’s most popular films on the big screen. Audiences can also experience a selection of silent films with live musical accompaniment performed on the Gallery’s 1929 Wurlitzer Organ, which once belonged to the Regent Theatre.
