LIAF 2018: Late Night Bizarre (18)

December 8, 2018
9:00 pm

LIAF’s annual walk on the wild side screening the most twisted films to emerge this year. This ever-popular Late Night Bizarre programme is a bunch of anti-classics guaranteed to be as far away from Disney as its possible to get. A dirty fistful of 16 of the weirdest, wildest, most demented films hand-picked from the 2,600 entered.

Our ever popular Music Video Session screens just before this one at 19:30. You can buy tickets for both screenings for just £12 + booking fee.

18+ (contains violence, coarse language, sex scenes and drug use)
