Afraid of spiders? How about body snatchers? Or are flesh eating plants your worst nightmare? Bram Stoker Festival are thrilled to welcome Dublin’s bravest movie fans to the National Botanic Gardens for Creature Features, 3 nights of adults-only horror-comedy screenings within the garden walls. Gather your friends for after-hours shenanigans and natural-horror thrills, with the stunning Victorian glasshouses of the Botanic Gardens as a suitably spooky backdrop.
In the classic 1978 science fiction horror film Invasion of the Body Snatchers, a race of gelatinous aliens arrive on Earth, forming into small pods of deceptively pretty pink flowers, whose tendrils grasp their human victims in their sleep and duplicate them; each a perfect copy of the person replaced, only devoid of human emotion.
The acclaimed cinematography, soundtrack and stellar cast (including Jeff Goldblum and Leonard Nimoy) make for a delightfully unsettling spook-fest in this gory dystopian thriller.
