The Dark Art of Graham Humphreys
£6 tickets on sale here
Join The Roxy Bar & Screen on Halloween night for a very special evening showcasing the work of British genre artist and designer, Graham Humphreys.  Responsible for some of the most famous horror movie posters of the 1980s, The Roxy will be screening the two films he’s probably best known for lending his talents to:



A Nightmare On Elm Street (Wes Craven ’84)
From modern horror master Wes Craven comes a timeless shocker that remains the standard bearer for terror.
Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) is having grisly nightmares. Meanwhile, her high-school friends, who are having the very same dreams, are being slaughtered in their sleep by the hideous fiend of their shared nightmares. When the police ignore her explanation, she herself must confront the killer in his shadowy realm.

Featuring John Saxon with Johnny Depp in his first starring role and mind-bending special effects, this horror classic gave birth to one of the most infamous undead villains in cinematic history: Freddy Krueger…


Evil Dead II – Dead by Dawn  (Sam Raimi ’87)

Evil Dead 2 is a sophisticated blood and gore satire with wall-to-wall special effects that concentrates on the classic conflict between good and evil.
In an apparently forsaken cottage, Ash and Linda discover a tape recorder. They turn it on to hear the voice of Professor Knowby, who has successfully translated ‘The book of the dead.’ His words awaken the spirit of evil, possessing Linda. Ash begins his relentless battle against an all-powerful evil that takes many forms including the trees, Linda’s decapitated head and even his own hand.
When evil appears to get the upper hand it is left to Ash to don a chainsaw and shotgun and rid the world of the demon spirit by dawn.
A selection of Humphreys’ work will be on display on the evening, and the man himself will be in attendance for a brief chat about his career and love for all things grisly and ghoulish. You will also be able to buy signed prints of Graham’s original artwork for both the original Elm Street and Evil Dead 2 on the night.
