ABERTOIR at Taliesin

Against a blurry background there are two 'cut out' images from Dr. Jekyll and It Lives Inside. On the left, a close up of Eddie Suzy Izzard, looking to the right, blonde hair pulled back from her made-up face, wearing a prim black blazer. On the right, a dramatic image of Megan Suri, wearing a sari and dishevalled, looking to the left with concern. She is bathed in an orange light.

See this brand new release from the legendary Hammer studios before anyone else in this special advance preview. Eddie Izzard is perfectly cast in the title role of Dr Nina Jekyll in this witty reimagining of the classic tale. A once successful scientist, now living in seclusion with her demons, is in need of an assistant – enter ex-con Rob, straight out of rehab and trying to get back on his feet. Yet it soon becomes clear that there are evil forces at play and Rob is about to get tested in a game of cat and mouse with the Devil in all its forms…

Sam is desperate to fit in at school, rejecting her Indian culture and family to be like everyone else. When a mythological demonic spirit latches onto her former best friend, she must come to terms with her heritage in order to defeat it. From the producers of Get Out, this original and gnarly new horror film won the Midnighters Audience Award at SXSW, and is screening in a very special advance preview.
