Berberian Sound Studio - 18:00 at Filmhouse
Horror fans will love this anti-horror: a stylistic look behind the scenes of a gruesome 1970s Italian horror film. Berberian Sound Studio follows the work of an English sound technician (Toby Jones), giving an insight into the power of sound in cinema. Meet the cast and director at the Q&A after this screening.
Brake - 18:30 at Cineworld
If you liked Buried, you'll love Brake. The clock is ticking to see this film - a claustrophobic thriller starring Stephen Dorff as a man who awakens to find he is trapped in the trunk of a moving car while his captors make deadly demands.
God Bless America - 20:20 at Cineworld
Fans of Ben Elton can shun the X Factor before it has begun with Bobcat Goldthwaite's antidote to the idiocy of contemporary media culture. Bobcat Goldthwaite will provide a Q&A after this European Premiere of his lastest black comedy hit.
Eddie - The Sleepwalking Cannibal - 22:45 at Filmhouse
The key to the cinematic monster is that he is misunderstood. Thule Lindhardt's cleverly endearing central performance complements director Boris Rodriguez's perfect balance of outrageously black humour and genuinely grisly horror, ensuring that Eddie earns its place as a hilariously disturbed cult classic. This screening opens with an extended introduction from director Boris Rodriguez.

Eddie - The Sleepwalking Cannibal - 20:30 at Cineworld

V/H/S - 22:00 at Filmhouse
Video purists will love V/H/S, in which a gang is hired to break into a desolate house and steal a rare VHS cassette. Providing the last word in “found footage” horror, this cleverly devised anthology is contemporary cinema at its most frightening.
Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie - 23:15 at Cameo
Long established collaborators Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C Reilly and Jeff Goldblum star alongside the titular heroes in this brilliantly absurd and delightfully dark tale of greed and friendship. Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim break out from the confines of online sketches to bring their unique style of humour to the glorious big screen.
