First in a short season introducing the rich and immersive world of silent film with live music. We start with an encore of this little-known, long-lost scare flick, presented with the live score that premiered at the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival 2018.

Debonair man of leisure James Kirkham is keen to travel the world before settling down with his fiancée Eve. On the eve of his departure the couple are kidnapped from a society ball and taken to a mansion populated by strange freaks and monsters, held prisoner by the mysterious master of the house… none other than Satan himself! This riotous – and on occasion salacious – movie is bags of fun. Think Carry On Devil Worship crossed with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and you get the general idea.

“Rarely have I seen a silent film in which the music fits it so perfectly… The film was great fun but the accompaniment took it to another dimension.” Silent Film Calendar

“Most fun I had at the festival was definitely Seven Footprints to Satan, with a sophisticated and witty score played by Jane Gardner and Roddy Long… one of Gardner’s very best.” Pamela Hutchinson, Silent London

Performing live: Jane Gardner (piano) and Roddy Long (violin)
Dir. Benjamin Christensen | US | 1929 | Italian inter-titles with English sur-titles | 1hr 10min | not rated, recommended 12A
