Each month, the Good/Bad Film Club pairs a touchstone cult classic alongside a thematically linked, less beloved film. Whether unearthing curios from the history of cult cinema, making the case for an unfairly maligned secret classic, or enjoying the simple pleasures of a wonderfully bad film, we promise eye-opening presentations from the highways and byways of film history, celebrating the bad, the good and the misunderstood in cult cinema.

This month, inspired by the 30th Anniversary (and incoming remake) of The Crow, we pair Alex Proyas’ touchstone goth horror with another comic book adaptation about a dark angel of vengeance returning from beyond the grave: It can only be Spawn, the superhero blockbuster that was an infamous box office disaster in 1997, but which nevertheless contains a mass of hidden delights, from disastrous attempts at zany humour to some rather wonderful, shoddy late-90s CGI.

Don’t miss this truly special, one off double bill!

The Crow (30th Anniversary)

Witness Brandon Lee in his now-legendary – tragically final – role as resurrected vigilante Rock star Eric Draven, on a path to avenge his murdered girlfriend Shelley in Alex Proyas’ stylishly gothic comic book thriller, now a definitive cult classic some 30 years after its initial release.

Spawn (35mm)

An elite mercenary is killed, but comes back from Hell as a reluctant soldier of the Devil, in Mark A.Z. Dippé’s wildly misguided, now-legendary 1997 blockbuster disasterpiece, based on the popular comic book series of the same name.
