Cult classic featuring a young man who buys a motorbike only to discover that it’s possessed by an evil spirit

Dir: Dirk Campbell UK 1990, 101 mins Cert: 18

A good 26 years before Spielberg discovered the delights of Digbeth and the Jewellery Quarter as ideal shooting locations, Dirk Campbell and his team were here filming this low-budget comedy horror cult classic. A feature film spin-off of 80s comedy-drama series Boon, it's the tale of a young man (Neil Morrissey) who buys a motorbike only to discover that it’s possessed by the evil spirit of a man who was killed by a motorbike gang. Starring Anthony Daniels and Michael Elphick alongside Morrissey.

The film features an array of ingenious, lo-fi props and special effects, and we’re thrilled that Dirk Campbell and producers Mycal Miller and John Wolskel will be in attendance to introduce the screening.

Please note this is an outdoor screening and will go ahead whatever the weather, so make sure to wrap up warm. There will also be a licensed bar.
