The Hands of Orlac – Halloween Silent Film at Kilruddery
The people behind the annual Kilruddery Silent Film Festival are back hosting a once off special screening for Halloween of Robert Weine’s 1924 the Hands of Orlac this Sunday 31 October at 8pm in Kilruddery House, just south of Bray. The film, which will be accompanied on the piano by Vyvienne Long, is a macabre thriller about a famed concert pianist who after having his hands amputated in a train accident, has them replaced with the hands of an executed murderer with sinister repercutions. If you liked Noseferatu and Metropolis then you’ll like this.
Set in a candlelit Kilruddery, with Halloween themed drinks after the screening, the atmosphere should be great.
Tickets cost €20 including complimentary drink. Booking essential, call William Kinsella on 087 4198674.
