Our fourth installment of our monthly Belcourt Theatre co-presented cult and genre film night, Peripheral Visions, washes us up on the shores of a mysterious Spanish island for Island of the Damned.
Island of the Damned (AKA Who Can Kill A Child?) is an atmosphere rich nightmare of a film that boldly asks the question, 'What if the children had enough and took matters into their own hands and then the adults have enough and take matters into their own hands against the children... WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?"

Not nearly as hokey or quasi-religious bent as Children of the Corn (and in fact Island of the Damned predates that book by a year), this is a sinister film that can be shocking and disturbing and is genuinely, actually SCARY. When was the last time you were scared in a film? I mean, come on... every horror film these days is soft soaped bump and scare style rated PG-13 snooze fest. Does a movie that goes alternately by the titles "Island Of The Damned", "The Killer's Playground", "The Hex Massacre", or "Death is Child's Play" sound PG13 to you? NO? Of course it isn't, and you wouldn't have it any other way, would you weirdo film fans?!

Third Man and The Belcourt Theatre are very excited to bring this rarely-exhibited 1970's psychotronic blood-soaked horror classic to Nashville on 16mm film. Join us won't you?

Tickets purchased online can be picked up at Will Call, night-of, at 7pm. Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.
