Horror In The Caves

Saturday 21st October | DOORS: 15:30 | FILM START: 15:35 | APPROX END: 17:30

Bristol Film Festival returns to Redcliffe Caves this Halloween with 13 classic and contemporary horror movies to sink your teeth into. Pass through our military clearance and venture deep into the caves – there have been recent unconfirmed reports of inexplicable, possibly paranormal activity within the site’s many passages and chambers, and we’d like you to go first and check for us…

We’ll be selling a selection of ales onsite from our festival beer partner Wickwar Brewing, so whether you’re a horror aficionado, a thrill-seeker, or looking for something out of the ordinary, it’s the perfect setting… if you’re brave enough to stomach the venue!


1982 | 18 | 80 mins

Four friends travel to a cabin in the woods for Spring Break. Whilst there, they discover an old book, whose text reawakens the dead when read out loud. The group must fight for survival or risk being possessed by demonic forces, in the first of this classic horror trilogy.

Starring: Bruce Campbell | Ellen Sandweiss | Betsy Baker

Director: Sam Raimi

Producer: Robert Tapert 

Screenplay: Sam Raimi

THEY SAY: “Raimi’s script is riotously deadpan, his compositions undeniably breathtaking and inventive […] Now infamous for its over-the-top gore and cheesy effects sequences, The Evil Dead is most impressive for Raimi’s unnerving wide angle work and his uncanny, almost unreal ability to suggest the presence of intangible evil.” – Ed Gonzalez, Slant, 2002

WE SAY: A triumph of low-budget cinema and an unsettling blend of vicious horror and warped comedy, The Evil Dead is a cult film like no other. It’s spawned a whole franchise that gets more self-referential and camp with each addition, but the carnage of the original is difficult to surpass.
