Torture Garden (Francis, 1967): Film Club at Sanctum Hotel, Soho, 7pm
The Film Club at the Sanctum Hotel put on some wonderful movies and you can read more about them here at their Facebook page.
Time Out review:
'The second Amicus horror omnibus and one of the best, with a clever framing device involving Burgess Meredith as a Mephistophelean fairground charlatan who offers clients grisly glimpses of the future, in four Robert Bloch stories which get progressively better until the splendid climax of The Man Who Collected Poe.
Terrific performances from Jack Palance as the manic Poe collector who
achieves apotheosis by turning himself into a character straight out of
one of Poe's more apocalyptic stories, and from John Standing as a concert
pianist saddled with a murderously possessive grand piano.'
Here is the trailer.
