Jameson Cult Film Club returns to London & goes underground for The Silence of the Lambs - 19th April 2013

jameson cult silence of the lambsAs promised The Jameson Cult Film Club are returning to London with a cinematic great -  Jonathan Demme's adaptation of Thomas Harris' brilliant and chilling The Silence Of The Lambs! Slurp, slurp, slurp chianti and fava beans. Sorry had to be done.

Looks like Jameson are going to be hosting another brilliant screening and it is sure to be even more immersive - as with Wild Bill's dungeon it will be held in the spooky underground environs of the cavernous Victoria House. Not many people know this but Victoria House was also used by Christoper Nolan as the location for the elderly Maurice Fischer (Pete Postlethwaite) bedroom in Inception.

I am a huge fan of Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter and I know that The Silence Of The Lambs is held in high esteem, what with it winning 5 Oscars and all, and Sir Anthony Hopkins' Dr. Hannibal Lecter rated as one of the greatest villains in cinema history. But I can't help but think that screening The Silence Of The Lambs is a bit of a misstep...

In the words of that great social commentator Kanye West...
”Yo The Silence Of The Lambs I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish but Manhunter had the best Dr. Hannibal Lecter of all time. One of the best Dr. Hannibal Lecters of all time! Don't even let me start on Edward Norton's Red Dragon
When it comes to Hannibal Lecter there is only one interpretation that comes close to presenting the subtle terror of a genius psychotic and that my friends is Brian Cox's version of Dr. Hannibal Lecter in Michael Mann's 1989 Manhunter - a true cult classic in every sense of the word. Whilst The Silence Of The Lambs is a great piece of cinema Manhunter is an utterly compelling and absolutely awesome film and pretty much set the foundations of the TV show CSI that continues to engage audiences over 2 decades later. Not to put to fine a point on it but Manhunter is Blade Runner to The Silence Of The Lambs' Prometheus.

This is a real shame as Brian Cox is actually kicking around London at the moment having just discussed his prolific career on stage  at the House of St Barnabas for A Mighty Big If with Brian Cox and I'm sure he would have found the time to pop in to introduce Manhunter had it been screened. Talk about a mighty if.

Despite my thoughts above I'm sure this Jameson Cult Film Club screening of  The Silence of the Lambs is going to rock head over to facebook.com/jamesoncultfilmclub from Tuesday 26th March for details on how to get your free tickets.

Jameson Cult Film Club is going underground at the cavernous Victoria House for a chilling screening of the much revered The Silence of the Lambs.

“Believe me, you don't want Hannibal Lecter inside your head”… but after this experience we cannot guarantee that he won’t be there.

On Friday 19th April, Jameson Cult Film Club will screen Jonathan Demme’s adaptation of Robert Harris’s The Silence of the Lambs, in the underground warehouse and tunnels of Victoria House, London.

In true Jameson style, the cult film club will host much more than just a film screening, as it creates a fully interactive experience for fans to enjoy.  Guests will meet at the FBI’s Behavioural Science Unit, where they will be surrounded by posters and case notes pertaining to ‘Buffalo Bill’.

Against an eerie backdrop of prison whispers and bleating lambs, guests will make their way down to the prison cell housing Hannibal Lecter himself, keeping their wits about them and their hands off the glass at all times.

Having a well-earned drink is next on the cards; guests will mix their own Jameson cocktails wearing night vision goggles. Refreshed and fully immersed into the life of Clarice Starling, guests will then go through to the screening room via a rather familiar entrance.

Jameson Cult Film Club returns to London after its successful screenings of Reservoir Dogs in Liverpool and Birmingham in February. The cult film club was last in London hosting the Future Cult premiere of Seven Psychopaths, where film fans, cast and crew attended this very special premiere at a warehouse in Bethnal Green.
