Director: Piers Haggard
Starring: Oliver Reed, Klaus Kinski, Sterling Hayden, Nicol Williamson, Susan George
A kidnap attempt by international terrorists goes horribly wrong when all concerned are trapped in a house with a poisonous snake And not just any old poisonous snake: a black mamba – the most poisonous snake in the world! A hostage situation is incentive enough for a bunch of seasoned hams like this lot to go berserk, but when they start getting bitten, watch out! Klaus’s wrestling match with a rubber serpent is pretty spectacular but Ollie sweating and snorting as the snake slithers up his trouser leg is a moment you won’t want to miss.

ROAD HOUSE (1989)
Director: Rowdy Herrington
Starring: Patrick Swayze, Kelly Lynch, Sam Elliot, Ben Gazzara
Patrick Swayze is a drifter (and philosophy major) who puts his tai chi skills to work cleaning up a rough-as-guts redneck bar and fighting off the disreputable developer who want to turn the bar into a shopping centre. This fabulously excessive 80s epic is big and dumb and a truckload of fun with brawls and boobs and wall-to-wall bad dialogue like “It’s going to get worse before it gets better!” A fair description of the movie I’d say. Ben Gazzara does a pretty good impersonation of Boss Hogg as the villain and SNAG Swayze compensates for his ludicrous casting as the tough guy by walking around in the nude a lot.
When: Friday 17 January 2014 @ 8pm
