Like bad films and live in Bristol? You’ll ruddy love this then.
What on earth is Bristol Bad Film Club?
Bristol Bad Film Club is dedicated to showing notorious films that have either slipped through the cracks of cinematic history or movies that are judged as being irredeemably bad.
Why do you screen these awful films?
It’s purely selfish. As a big fan of cult films I just wanted to be able to watch the kind of films I inflicted on my friends to a bigger audience. As it was uncertain whether the people of Bristol would feel the same about films like Troll 2 and Samurai Cop, it was decided that all the profits from the screenings would go to local charities. So in a roundabout way, these ‘bad’ films are now doing good!
What have you shown so far?
Where do you screen them?
These films are often much more entertaining when you have a drink in your hand, so we always try and find venues with a well-stocked bar. We also try and find venues that suit the film, so we’ve screened two sci-fi films at Bristol Planetarium, showed Street Fighter at 80s arcade bar Kongs of King Street and even put on a martial arts movie in a dojo in Temple Gate – though we had to bring in kegs of beer for that one.
