Cigarette Burns host 1975 masterpiece at Rio Cinema

Having dispensed justice in Dalston with last month's big screen outing for RoboCop, cult film crew Cigarette Burns return to the Rio Cinema this Saturday February 18 to present "a fully uncut and pristine transfer" of Profondo Rosso.

Directed by Dario Argento and boasting Goblin's debut prog-gothic soundtrack, Deep Red (as it's also known) stars David Hemmings as a music teacher on the trail of a hatchet-wielding killer.

The thrills begin at 11.30pm, though you're advised to get there early to admire, purchase and/or enter a competition to win limited edition giallo movie prints courtesy of Dark City Gallery.

Tickets are £7.50 with the added lure of a late bar; more information at the Cigarette Burns website. You can watch a bespoke trailer for the event below, and be sure to read the Quietus tomorrow for our Italian horror conversation between Argento biographer James Gracey and rising indie group Spector...
