Daisy Dukes cinema will be screening family favourite Hocus Pocus, 1996 American satirical slasher film Scream, cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the iconic 1973 supernatural horror that is The Exorcist over the weekend.

You’ll also be able to catch a screening of the 2017 coming-of-age supernatural horror film It, based on Stephen Fry’s novel of the same name, alongside Ghostbusters and Quentin Tarantino’s brutal and immersive martial arts film Kill Bill.

And if that wasn’t enough to get you excited, organisers have also teamed up with one of the leading Scare Maze brands this year to “unleash holy hell” and help bring each movie to life.

With full-car family saver tickets priced at just £26.50, and two-car ticket prices starting from £31.80, it’s well worth a look in – but don’t hang about too long, tickets are already going fast with Hocus Pocus nearly sold out at the time of writing.
