The drawings in this exhibition by Isabel Mancebo Balda (that can be viewed in the Príncipe cinema in San Sebastian until 5th December) have been put together into a book. 47 and a half women, accompanied by different animals and objects, peculiar, fun and a little bit sinister, star in these pages full of humour, fashion, extravagance and affection.
Hedonist, magician, spy, adventurer, pioneer of psychedelic drugs, poet and fan of the dark arts, there can be no doubt that Crowley was a great influence on horror and fantasy cinema. His legendary figure inspired classics such as The Black Cat (1934) or Night of the Demon (1957), from silent movies to the Hammer and beyond, although maybe the most fascinating aspect is how his occult philosophy and magical rituals have been echoed in the work of filmmakers such as Albin Grau, Kenneth Anger, Orson Welles, Jodorowsky… The display is accompanied by the publication of this book coordinated by Jesús Palacios.
A special issue of the fanzine jointly produced with the Horror Festival pays homage to the picture show films of the 1970s: amazing double features that were never short of monsters, zombies, stripping off, scruffy superheroes, vicious nuns, one arm karate experts and B movie comic strip antics. This is an entire popular cinema feast that will take your breath away and lead you on a hallucinogenic journey to craziest grindhouse.
Many years ago there was a place where villages fought each other. Rival tribes were capable of creating immense contraptions just to beat their enemies and time stopped the day that two of them came up against each other. This is a fantastic, spectacular medieval story that tells of the birth of the Legend of the Forgotten Villages.
Mikel Azpiroz and Hasier Oleaga will offer live musical accompaniment for Nosferatu (1921), the classic by F. W. Murnau. They will play a soundtrack designed for the occasion, far from what you might expect for a horror film, with a jazz-funk feel.
