To celebrate Halloween we are delving into the films that inspired the cultural phenomenon that is ‘Stranger Things’. The magnificent Duffer Brothers haven’t shied away from the cult movies that inspired the hit show and we have selected two from a long list of Duffer favourites – Wes Craven’s ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and John Carpenter’s ‘The Fog’.
The Black Box will host this mini-movie marathon where we will have some “Stranger Things” goings-on to celebrate the season! On arrival roll the dice – roll evens and sit in our “Castle Byers” section where “Will the Wise” will treat you to some delicious inspired 80s treats; but roll an odd number and it’s off to the “Upside Down”! 80s movie tunes will provide the soundtrack and special prizes for anyone brave enough to perform live the #NeverEndingChallenge.
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
In Wes Craven’s classic slasher film, several Midwestern teens fall prey to Freddy Krueger, a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on the teenagers in their dreams!

Strange things begin to occur as a tiny California coastal town prepares to commemorate its centenary. Inanimate objects spring eerily to life; Rev. Malone stumbles upon a dark secret; radio announcer Stevie witnesses a mystical fire; and hitchhiker Elizabeth discovers a mutilated corpse!
Dir: John Carpenter – USA – 1980 – 89 mins – Cert: 15
Total Duration: 4hrs approx. / Ages: 18+
Get your fishnets and stockings ready for a night of debauchery as BanterFlix teams up with the Belfast Film Festival to screen the campest cult classic of them all, The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Halloween night at the Black Box Belfast.
Jim Sharman’s film tells the story of Brad and Janet, a newly engaged couple who end up by chance at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter on a stormy night after their car breaks down. It just so happens that on this night the self-proclaimed ‘sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania’ is hosting a party to celebrate the unveiling of his latest creation, a muscular Adonis called Rocky, a perfect male specimen who will bring him absolute pleasure.
As the night goes on our straight-faced lovebirds find themselves swept up in an evening of music and dance as their eyes are opened to a world of kink and perverted pleasure and their innocence is lost along the way.
There’ll be prop kits on hand to help get the audience in the mood for doing the time warp again and make sure to dress to impress on the night as there’s a prize on offer for the best costume.
Don’t worry if you’re a Rocky Horror virgin– don’t be scared, we won’t bite! Well not unless you want us to!
Doors will be open from 8:30pm and night kicks off around 9pm with a pre-show costume contest before the film begins.
