SCI-FI-LONDON is the UK’s leading genre event and an internationally recognised launch pad for genre movies. At each festival we have at least a dozen UK premieres.
The festival is now in its 9th year and will take place Wed 28th April – Mon 3rd May 2010 at The Apollo Piccadilly Circus Cinema, London’s most luxurious cinema.
Are you ready to split your sides? Rub some ointment on your aching smiley face and spend the night peeing your pants – but in a nice way?
Well join us for the ultimate challenge and watch some of the worst film ever made.
LIVE!!! At midnight we screen a Rutger Hauer classic, but the soundtrack is provided by some of London’s hottest stand-up talent including:
* Vanessa Hammick
* Charlotte Gittens
* Fraser Millward
* Paul Foxcroft
* Sara Pascoe
SALUTE OF THE JUGGER
(1989, David Webb Peoples)
A Mad Max-esque post apocalyptic world provides the backdrop for a brutal, futuristic game resembling football, but with sticks. Nice.
THE ALIEN FACTOR
(1978, Don Dohler)
Meet Leemoid, Zagatile and Interbyce. They’re the three aliens whose spaceship has crashed in a small town outside of Baltimore. See this film they way it was meant to be seen - on the big screen with CINEMATIC TITANIC.
(1957, Boris Petroff)
Mad doctor uses patients at his isolated psychiatric institute as subjects in his attempts to create longevity by surgically installing an artificial gland in their skulls, with disastrous results of course.
FIRST SPACESHIP ON VENUS
(1960, Kurt Maetzig)
When an alien artifact discovered on Earth is found to have come from Venus, an international team of astronauts embarks to investigate its origins. Based on a Stanislaw Lem story, ruined by Maetzig and redeemed by Mike and the crew.
