It’s a nightmare Hallowe’en at Triskel Cinema.
Triskel Arts Centre is celebrating director Wes Craven with screenings of three iconic films, The Hills Have Eyes, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream, this spooky season.
“Wes Craven was one of the most influential filmmakers in the horror genre of the late 20th century,” said Chris O’Neill, Head of Cinema at Triskel,
“Beginning in the early 1970s with The Last House on the Left through to the first four entries of the Scream series, Craven directed over twenty features which were wildly inventive and imaginatively layered. We’re looking forward to screening (and watching) these three films on Hallowe’en.”
At the centre of many of Craven’s works is an outside force invading the lives of middle-class suburban families.
Many sequels as well as a remake and even a television series followed A Nightmare on Elm Street, but it was Wes Craven’s original film that brought the character of Freddy Krueger into the world.
The screening at Triskel takes place on the eve of the 40th anniversary of the film that became a pop culture icon of the 1980s.
Each screening will be preceded by vintage trailers for other Wes Craven films. You can book tickets at triskelartscentre.ie.
