With their new LP The Night Creeper out now, Mat Colegate talks to Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats singer Kevin Starrs about the horror and exploitation films that feed into the band's rich world of imagery and music


Sisters (Brian De Palma, 1973)

I really appreciate the references to Hitchcock in De Palma's films. Sisters is very influenced by Hitchcock's work, especially Rear Window and things like that. It was a film that I wasn't really expecting much of, but when I watched it it was great. There's quite a few good twists. De Palma is quite underrated, I think. He's made a lot of real rubbish but he has a lot of really good films in his back catalogue.
