Adam Marsh, QUAD’s Cinema Programmer said:

“We always try to come up with a nice mix of horror classics, new frightmares and some lesser seen gems as part of our line up and this year is no exception. We have five feature films and one short from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and a brand new horror from 2017. It’s going to be a great night and breakfast for the survivors!”

Dead and Breakfast IX takes place in QUAD on Saturday 28th October, from 8:30pm until dawn. Tickets cost £25, £17.50 concessions for all screenings, followed by breakfast in QUAD Café Bar. For more information or to book tickets please see: here
