This Thursday sees Film 4 give movie lovers another chance to see not one, not two, but three recent TVO related smashes in a row.
Alice Lowe‘s Prevenge – in which a pregnant mother-to-be begins revenge-killing those responsible for the death of her partner, seemingly at the behest of her unborn baby – starts the triple bill at 10:45pm. Gareth Tunley‘s The Ghoul follows at 12:35am, telling the tale of an undercover detective who is investigating a bizarre double-homicide when reality begins to unravel around him. Finally, Steve Oram‘s Aaaaaaaah! – a film with no dialogue, as its protagonists have reverted to ape-like grunts and increasingly simian behaviour despite all the modern mod-cons – rounds things off at 2:20am until the channel closes for the night at 4:00am.
That’s just over five hours of non-stop Oniony goodness, featuring a cavalcade of Velvety faces, including Tom Meeten, Dan Skinner, Gemma Whelan, Waen Shepherd, Mike Wozniak, Noel Fielding, Julian Barratt, Rufus Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Paul Kaye, Tony Way, Kayvan Novak, Tom Davis, Rachel Stubbings, Shelley Longworth, Julian Rhind-Tutt and John Willie Hopkins, as well as a powerhouse display of female talent across the films – Kate Dickie, Leila Hoffman, Niamh Cusack and Toyah Willcox amongst them.
We’re sure by now we don’t need to tell you much more about these movies, but if you like what you see, and you haven’t bought them yet, they can all be picked up on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital now.
Pick up a copy of Prevenge here, The Ghoul there, and Aaaaaaaah! somewhere. And if you’re still not sure, you can revisit our reviews of each film, interviews with each director, and the original trailers for the movies below.
