Electric Sheep Film Club: Repulsion (1965)

For the seventh meeting of the Electric Sheep Film Club at the Prince Charles Cinema off Leicester Square, we’re showing the classic London-set thriller about paranoia and claustrophobia:

Repulsion (1965)

One of Roman Polanski’s finest films and the first he made in the UK, Repulsion charts the mental disintegration of a sexually troubled, beautiful young woman played by Catherine Deneuve. As elegant as it is creepy, Polanski’s taut psychological horror thriller superbly conveys the character’s claustrophobic loneliness and contrasts the mundanity of her life in 60s London with the startling surreal hallucinations that increasingly take over her inner world. An absolute 60s classic.

With thanks to BFI. The film will be followed by informal discussion with Electric Sheep writers in the bar.

Price: £5/£3.50 Prince Charles members
Certificate 15
Dir: Roman Polanski, UK 1965
