Virus Bio / Kill-Town Death Fest 2012



VIRUS BIO will present a phantasmagoria of six unholy wonders from the exotic and demented world of horror. The VIRUS BIO film club has been terrorizing the good people of Copenhagen for the last three years in places like Bolsjefabrikken and Osram, and has now moved to Mayhem. VIRUS BIO is mostly showing surreal mind bombs from the 60's new wave cinema from Eastern Europe and Japan, but since this is a death metal festival I've selected an eclectic dish of the more sinister kind.

BLACK MAGIC (Hong Kong. 1975) Saturday 1st 14.00 in Dødsmaskinen
The legendary and prolific Shaw Brothers' film empire has produced some of the most outrageous and original cult classics including 'Bamboo House Of Dolls' (with Danish sexpot Birte Tove), 'Master Of The Flying Guillotine', 'Human Lanterns', 'The Boxer's Omen' and 'Killer Snakes'. This deranged tale is basically a twisted love story gone horrible wrong. A magician makes money by charging people to cast love spells, but soon chaos reigns supreme between black and white magic. Contains truly insane and inventive FX and action sequences out of this world which have to be seen to be believed!

SATANICO PANDEMONIUM (Mexico. 1975) Saturday 1st 17.30 in Dødsmaskinen
Set in a Mexican convent in the 17th century, this epic concerns the spiritual downfall of a pretty young nun being seduced by the dark side because of her carnal desires (read: SATAN!). This gem takes notes from Ken Russell's masterpiece 'The Devils' and give it's own spin on the infamous nunsploitation genre. Truly offensive material for devout catholics and excellent popcorn entertainment for heathens.


HARDWARE (UK. 1990) Saturday 1st 21.00 in Dødsmaskinen
A wandering soldier finds a robot head in the post-apocalyptic desert. He brings it back to his girlfriend for use in one of her sculptures. As the cyborg is brought back to life, an orgy of gory Terminator-esque violence erupts. Stylished to the max, this underrated nasty sci-fi shocker delivers the goods and features a cast including Lemmy and Iggy Pop. From the director of 'Dust Devil'.

AT MIDNIGHT I'LL TAKE YOUR SOUL (Brazil. 1963) Sunday 2nd 14.00 in Dødsmaskinen
The debut feature by Brazilian maverick José Mojica Marins is one of the most extreme and original horror films from the first half of the 60's. For the very first time the director/actor brings his alter ego, Coffin Joe, to the screen – much to the despair of South American censors and religious organisations at the time. Coffin Joe, a Nietzschean-like undertaker, spreads havoc in a small town as his evil quest for a son turns to murder and dismemberment. A notorious cult classic of the truly bizarre and exotic!

MOTEL HELL (USA. 1980) Sunday 2nd 16.00 in Dødsmaskinen
'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' fans take note! Southern farmer Vincent kidnaps unsuspecting travellers and buries them in his garden. Unfortunately for his victims, they are not dead. He feeds his victims to prepare them for his roadside stand. A grisly, ghoulish and campy American drive-in frightfest. Not for vegetarians or those with weak stomachs! Dinner is served.

BARON BLOOD (Italy. 1972) Sunday 2nd 18.00 in Dødsmaskinen
The final entry in VIRUS BIO's KTDF two-day filmfest special is an old fashioned gothic epic by legendary Italian shock maestro Mario Bava ('Bay Of Blood', 'The Whip And The Body', 'Blood And Black Lace' and 'Black Sunday'). A young man returns to Austria in search of his heritage. He visits the castle of an ancestor, a sadistic Baron who was cursed to a violent death by a witch whom the Baron had burned at the stake. Peter reads aloud the incantation that causes Baron Blood to return and continue his murderous tortures. Packed with Bava's usual lush atmospheric visuals and superior lighting techniques, this is a must for fans of stylished Italian horror. Oh yeah, doom/death metallers Druid Lord worship this flick!
