“The ultimate camp-Gothic bitchfight. Vastly entertaining.” Daily Telegraph (UK)
“A lurid melodrama of hate, revenge and murder, a high-class horror film, in the Hitchcock vein, with virtuoso performances from Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, and moments both searing and poignant.” Hollywood Reporter
“The on-screen fireworks were reportedly fuelled by off-screen hatred, but the chemistry between the stars is unquestionably hair-raising and upped the Gothic stakes to camp shock levels.” Radio Times
Doors at 7pm; Film starts at 7.10pm; Event finishes 9.45pm
