In the basement of the Harvard Medical School, Dr Edward Jessup floats naked in total darkness. The most terrifying experiment in the history of science is out of control and the subject is himself! Ken Russell’s cult classic was originally released in Warner Brothers’ Megasound format, a “revolutionary new concept in the sensation of sound”, designed to enhance the visceral viewing experience, delivering low-frequency thrills at high volume. Now, Altered States is presented for the first time in Matchbox Cineclub’s own Immers-o-sound™ system, developed exclusively for this screening in association with Glasgow Film Festival. Immerse yourself in terror!
The screening, which will be preceded by Matchbox’s 30-minute FREAK-SUITE edit, takes place Thursday 18/02 from 7pm in the gallery area of The Old Hairdressers, Glasgow.
Tickets are £5 from the GFF website – on sale from 10am on Monday 25th January.
