Hollywood Babylon brings the cult back to culture with The Hidden

An alien parasite possesses humans and goes on killing people violently. FBI agent Lloyd Gallagher is on the case as Hollywood Babylon returns to the big screen in Smithfield this Saturday.


Hollywood Babylon are some of the biggest supporters of the strange and unusual in the fair city of film, having brought cult hits, classic chaos and plenty of Midnight Movie madness to the Light House Cinema over the years.

This Saturday 25h September they’ll be back for live cinema, the first in a new series of programming that starts with with sci-fi horror The Hidden.

Something strange starts happening to some ordinary people in this 1987 sci-fi flick. People appear to be turning into homicidal killers at random, much to the bafflement of LA detective Thomas Beck (Michael Nouri). He pairs up with the strange FBI guy (Kyle MacLachlan in familiar territory) and learns the threat is much bigger than he imagines, intergalactic even…

The Hidden is of a piece with the flicks found at #BeyondFriday, the Twitter club of the bold, bizarre and brilliantly bloody Midnight Movies. If you’re a fan, this Saturday Hollywood Babylon and the Light House have the perfect film for you.
