LIAF 2019: Late Night Bizarre (18)

December 7, 2019
9:00 pm

It’s back. LIAF’s annual walk on the wild side featuring the most twisted films to emerge this year. We dug deep to find the best and this is what you find when you go down that far. This ever-popular Late Night Bizarre programme is a bunch of anti-classics guaranteed to be as far away from Disney as it’s possible to get. A dirty fistful of 11 of the weirdest, wildest, most demented films hand-picked from the 2,600 entered.

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