Announcing a new Meetup for The Oxford Movie Fans Meetup!

What: Los ojos de Julia (Julia's Eyes) at the Phoenix
When: Sunday, May 29, 2011 7:00 PM

Where: The Phoenix
Walton Street Oxford
Oxford

The Arts group saw this last week, but as I missed it along with several fellow meetup members I thought it would be good to have a second attempt!

Finding its way to UK screens thanks to the guiding hand of producer Guillermo del Toro (PAN'S LABYRINTH), JULIA'S EYES is the latest Spanish shocker set to keep you up at night.

Guillem Morales' (THE UNCERTAIN GUEST) film centres around the suspicious suicide of a blind woman, whose sister, herself losing her sight, is on the case to find out who's really behind her death. With darkness soon to engulf her, Julia (Rueda, THE ORPHANAGE) is in a race against time to uncover the truth, but as her condition worsens, is she edging ever closer to the same fate that saw her sister's untimely demise? Packed full of old-fashioned chills and lurid suspense, JULIA'S EYES is a full-blooded horror for fans of [REC] and THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE.

"A fascinating, broken-backed picture full of riveting twists and dubious psychology." - the Guardian

"Part psychological thriller, part slasher horror, part whodunnit, this is rich in atmosphere and suspense, with a commanding central performance from Rueda, who was similarly compelling in The Orphanage" - Empire magazine

"Aims for intricate, Hitchcockian suspense, embellished with ornate visual flourishes that recall Dario Argento's early giallo movies". - Time Out

This gets 96% on Rotten Tomatoes so should be well worth a look. The show starts at 7.30pm - meet in the Phoenix upstairs cafe bar between 7pm and 7.30pm - early booking is suggested as the Phoenix can sell out.

Check it out!

Also if you're wondering what Spanish horror might be like, check out

And although in English, but directed by Alejandro AmenĂ¡bar, so with close kinship to the Genre...

Thanks to everyone who came along to this double bill (Win Win and Julia's eyes) over the weekendsmile

It was great to see both some familiar and new faces, and hopefully we can get into a more regular cycle of seeing films again! If anyone has any requests or ideas please feel free to post them on the message board or contact one of the organisers.

cheers
