What is it?
In honour of the world’s favourite hallowed holiday, and the decade in which not only disco was born, but also in which some of the best and most iconic horror films were ever created, Disco in London will be screening the spine-chilling cult classic, Discopath! The film Discopath (Discopathe) is a 2013 Canadian film directed by Renaud Gauthier in which a New Yorker becomes insane when he hears disco music. The character travels to Montreal and carries out a killing spree.
The special Halloween night at Disco will begin with guests checking in, Pan Am style of course, before taking their seats for the fabulously retro and truly terrifying interactive film screening. Guests will be served a selection of blood-chilling beverages. There will be food from a specially designed Retro Discopathe menu, which will be served before, and during the film, courtesy of Stax Diner. An abundance of alcoholic ‘Hard Milkshakes’ will also be on offer. A special ‘blow your head off’ Belvedere Vodka cocktail will even be created for the night called ‘Death by Disco’, that promises to contain more chocolate than the most successful trick or treat trip.
Once the film has come to an end, all those who haven’t been killed off by the Discopath, will be welcomed to stay for ’Murder On The Dancefloor’ into the early hours. There will be roller skating table service, a deadly dance-off competition, prizes for best costumes, and some sinister surprises and ghoulish giveaways to be revealed on the evening.
Disco is an underground boîte inspired by the 1970s Manhattan disco movement. Guests are greeted at a Pan Am inspired lounge where air stewardesses issue boarding passes and check personal items into the cloakroom via a conveyor belt.
