So, let the laundry pile up, leave the dishes for another day and tell the folks to go the pub for their dinner as you enjoy a thrilling night of suspense, horror and fright with FACT cinema and Arthouse Hotel.

The Genius of Alfred Hitchcock

One of the greatest film directors of all time, Alfred Hitchcock will go down in history as “The Master of Suspense”.

The man was a perfectionist when it came to making movies and he had but one desire, to

“always make the audience suffer as much as possible.”

Due to filming restrictions in Hitchcock’s time, the shock factor of gruesome gore and guts couldn’t be shown, he, therefore, had to create the same horror but without the visual aids.

Hitchcock did this by psychological suggestion, he played with the audience’s mind, building suspense so that the watcher’s imagination did the rest. As the man himself said;

“There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it”.

And this is what he specialised in, the art on anticipation.

The Line-Up

Every Sunday from 8th July – 12th August FACT will be screening some of Hitchcock’s most popular work including Rear Window, Strangers On A Train and the terrifying Psycho as part of their Vintage Sunday specials.

In total, six of Hitchcock’s finest films will be shown at FACT and what’s more many of them are rated PG, so younger audiences can come along to appreciate a time before CGI and impressive special effects were used.

Check out the ease with which Hitchcock captivates his audiences, and also the dark humour he injects into each and every movie he made.

Quite the character and ever the showman Hitchcock even appeared in many of the movies he created, see if you can spot his brief cameos whilst watching.

Sunday Night Hotel Offers

We have the ideal Sunday night hotel offers that go hand in hand with a night at the movies watching the best of Hitchcock’s thrillers in FACT and better still our stunning hotel is right around the corner from the cinema.

This amazing offer is just £169 per couple and is only one of the other fabulous Sunday night offers we have available at Arthouse Hotel.

Movie Night Get Together

Or instead of date night why not take a group of mates along to watch Hitchcock’s most referenced thriller movie; Psycho.

This is undoubtedly the feather in Hitchcock’s movie-making career cap as viewers watch the journey of Marion, a thief on the path to a new future with stolen cash.

Psycho was released with disclaimers in movie theatres across the world, which read;

“We won’t allow you to cheat yourself. You must see PSYCHO from the very beginning. Therefore, do not expect to be admitted into the theatre after the start of each performance of the picture. We say no one — and we mean no one — not even the manager’s brother, the President of the United States, or the Queen of England (God bless her)!”

Hitchcock believed it was key for viewers to immerse themselves in the scenes he had so painstakingly created. To make the most of their fear and intrigue he insured, from the start that his audiences were fully engaged, only then did he believe true fear could be achieved.

via GIPHY

You’ll need your friends to reassure you no harm will come after being terrified by Hitchcock’s Psycho and the more the merrier as our super Sunday night hotel offers welcome groups of guests to stay the night at Arthouse Hotel.

For example, our All The Single Ladies midweek stay offer is perfect for four friends to enjoy a movie night stay in the Psycho room at Arthouse Hotel, ideal for a fabulous movie night with friends just £59 per person.

Things That Always Happen on a Girls’ Night Out

A girls’ night out, you’ve got to love them! It’s a sacred ritual that is beneficial to both the mind and body.

Every night is slightly different, but you all know that the following things can and will occur each ladies’ night, without fail.

The struggle to assemble the gang

via GIPHY

You all live all over the gaff, but you’ll cross countries and continents to get together for that all important night on the town together.

Organising the date will be tricky and you’ll go through a thousand WhatsApp messages, but you and the girls will get there in the end.

You take at least 3 hours to get ready

via GIPHY

Once the night is decided, you’ve been planning outfits for weeks, but you still have no idea what to wear.

And of course, you”ll take at least half a day to get ready, because we all know it’s one of the best parts of the night.

One thousand selfies

via GIPHY

Before you leave the house, two hundred pictures have already been taken… and most of them are identical to each other.

The perfect group photo on a girls’ night is a must!

Too many pre-drinks

via GIPHY

We all know pre-drinks is usually more fun that the actual night out, which usually results in you drinking far too much.

You’ll definitely play Never Have I Ever, Ring of Fire and have rambling conversations about the last hilarious time you got drunk together.

Belting out your favourite tunes

via GIPHY

In your heads, you are all Beyoncé. To the neighbours, there’s a very high possibility that a whole bunch of cats are being strangled next door.

No one is ever ready for the taxi

via GIPHY

Quick! The taxi man is getting angry!

There’s always one that can’t handle her drink

via GIPHY

Time to put on the ‘act sober’ routine for the bouncers.

Synchronised dancing

via GIPHY

One could be dancing solidly for about three hours on a girls’ night out. Sure it’s practically like going to the gym?

Creepy men EVERYWHERE

via GIPHY

Just hovering. Not really dancing, not saying anything, but occasionally trying to touch people inappropriately.

Shots!

via GIPHY

Always seem like the best idea you’ve ever had. The you of tomorrow can deal with the consequences.

Group bathroom trips

via GIPHY

You couldn’t possibly brave the bathroom alone?!

Drunkenly reapplying makeup

via GIPHY

Just a little touch up can easily end in tragedy.

Making friends with other girls in the toilets

via GIPHY

You’re sure to unite with other girl gangs in the loos and compliment them all on their appearance.

Someone will cry

via GIPHY

It’s just bound to happen. We don’t know why and no one can really remember, but it always happens.

Your shoes will betray you

via GIPHY

You’ll be praying to the feet gods for some kind of relief by the end of the night.

Drunk texting someone’s ex

via GIPHY

Always seems like a great idea … never is.

A greasy takeaway at 4am

via GIPHY

Carbs are your friend.

Downing glasses of water together

via GIPHY

You’ll always desperately try and counter act the inevitable hangover with pints of H20.

The hangover from hell

via GIPHY

You wake up with a seriously dry mouth. You can barely swallow, but the prospect of getting out of bed for water is daunting. You’ll then start asking google if you can die from a hangover.

Group message debrief the next day

via GIPHY

Did I really do that?

X has tagged you in 400 photos

That terrifying ping of your phone and the utter dread of finding out what you looked like all night.

13 Things To Avoid if You Are A Female in a Horror Movie

If you are a female in a horror movie chances are you are going to die, that is unless you follow our helpful list of things to avoid.

You may think that life is not worth living once you’ve checked off all our recommendations but at least you’ll have a life to live.

Here are the top 13 things to avoid if you are female and in a horror movie.

Mini Skirts

That’s right ladies as soon as you get those pins out its bye bye.

Those who dare to bare always get picked off first, see Sydney’s best friend Tatum in Scream.

Note her stylish little mini skirt and compare it to Sidney’s casual jeans and t-shirt look.

The legs came out and Tatum bit the dust in a grisly garage door related incident.

Running/Falling

For some reason, if you are a female in a horror movie you instantly forget how to run the moment your life depends on it.

via GIPHY

Your legs don’t work any more and you will always pick the most treacherous escape route into dark foreboding woods.

Our top tip for survival walk, don’t run, there’s less chance of falling and killers always have a slow scary walk anyway.

Baby Sitting

Kids are a nightmare at the best of times but, guaranteed, if you are a female in a horror movie you should avoid babysitting like the plague.

via GIPHY

As soon as you put those tots to bed and put on a spooky movie, a masked madman will appear at the window ready to attack.

No matter what it pays just say no to babysitting.

Cooking

It’s always the way in a scary movie.

The moment you pop something in the oven or start making popcorn to watch a movie the psycho killer will call, knock on the door or chase you through the house wielding their weapon of choice.

The best advice we could give is order a takeaway.

Open Water

Is there anything more frightening for a female in a horror movie than an open stretch of water?

via GIPHY

Who knows What Lies Beneath the murky deep, could be a giant killer crocodile or the body of someone long presumed dead come back to life.

Either way, don’t be tempted into a lonely boat ride on any open water unless you plan on getting wet and dead.

Boys

Time and time again we see females in horror movies who are shy, single and often virgins survive against all the odds.

As soon as you entertain the notion of a boyfriend he’ll seal your fate.

via GIPHY

Guaranteed he’ll either be the guy who has been bumping off your mates or your dalliance will simply make you a target.

It’s all a lesson to stay innocent and pure for as long as possible, all the girls who just wanna have fun don’t have long in horror movies.

Friends

So far we’ve given you a lot to stay away from, in fact, any female in a horror movie should instantly write off having a social life altogether.

via GIPHY

No one can be trusted and in particular your nearest and dearest friends.

“Everyones a suspect” as Randy so eloquently puts it in Scream and as poor Natalie found out all too late in Urban Legend.

Woods

From the fear of the unknown in Blair Witch to flesh-eating virus’s in Cabin Fever and even murderous inbred yocals in Wrong Turn, the woods can be a terrifying place to be for a female in a horror movie.

So unless you are attending a teddy bears picnic we suggest avoiding all heavily wooded areas for the foreseeable future.

Phones

Just let the machine pick it up!

via GIPHY
Image result for sidney scream phone gifRelated image

We suggest sticking to texting, emailing or even smoke signals, but just don’t pick up the phone.

Rain

Okay so the rain is usually just an excuse to get our leading lady looking wet and sexy, however pouring rain usually makes things scarier too.

Think slippier surfaces, reduced visibility and you might catch a cold.

On the plus side, it does a good job washing all those pesky blood stains from your clothes.

Showers

Another fine excuse to get the leading lady wet and naked, shower scenes are almost mandatory in the best horror movies.

via GIPHY

Of course, if you happen to be a female in a horror movie it’s better to just have a stand-up wash as we all know it won’t end well once the water goes on.

Alcohol and Drugs

Maintaining purity and innocence is key to surviving a horror movie if you are female.

Under absolutely no circumstances are you advised to consume alcohol or any other mind-altering substances.

Once you’ve crossed that line then its the end of the line for you.

Driving

As soon as you get behind the wheel, unless you are fleeing at the end of the movie, you’ve pretty much signed your death warrant.

via GIPHY

You could find a nasty surprise in the back seat, you could breakdown in a spooky poorly lit road, you could even run over a poor unsuspecting person who you think is dead then dispose of the body with four of your friends only to be haunted by the same person a year later.

So, unless you are pretty sure it’s the end of the movie don’t chance driving and catch the bus.

And that concludes our list of things to avoid if you are a female in a horror movie. 

Check out some of the amazing accommodation offers we have for females at Arthouse and book to stay the night in one of our fabulous movie-themed hotel rooms.
