Samhain na mBan: Jennifer’s Body
When small town high-school student Jennifer is possessed by a hungry demon, she transitions from being “high-school evil” — gorgeous (and doesn’t she know it), stuck up and ultra-attitudinal — to the real deal: evil/evil. The glittering beauty becomes a pale and sickly creature jonesing for a meaty snack, and guys who never stood a chance with the heartless babe, take on new luster in the light of Jennifer’s insatiable appetite. Meanwhile, Jennifer’s lifelong best friend Needy, long relegated to living in Jennifer’s shadow, must step-up to protect the town’s young men, including her nerdy boyfriend.
This Halloween, from October 18th – 31st, Pálás Galway are celebrating the very best horror films by women filmmakers with their Halloween season Samhain na mBan. Ranging from Ida Lupino’s 1953 The Hitch-Hiker to Coralie Fargeat’s 2018 Revenge, and of course Mary Harron’s cult classic American Psycho – there’s something to satiate every horror fan’s appetite.
Fancy dress throughout the season is very much encouraged as we stand in aaagh of all mná!
