DON'T KNOCK TWICE Celebrates Its Cinema Release with the World’s Smallest and Most Terrifying Premiere-For-One at London’s Oldest Haunted Rio Cinema

DON'T KNOCK TWICE


Red and Black Films, the team behind the Award-winning The Machine, are delighted to celebrate the release of their latest film, DON’T KNOCK TWICE, by offering one competition winner the chance to win the world’s most terrifying and haunted Premiere-For-One at London’s oldest cinema Dalston Rio on Tuesday 28th March. DON’T KNOCK TWICE is released in cinemas from 31st March and On Demand and DVD 3rd April and stars Katee Sackhoff (Oculus, Riddick, Battlestar Galactica), Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter, Sing Street) and Nick Moran (Harry Potter, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels). Red And Black Films will also be offering lots runners-up prizes including cinema tickets and signed film artwork.

On Tuesday 28th March, one terrified "lucky" winner will be the sole person attending the UK premiere of Don’t Knock Twice. The film takes place in various creepy settings, and so does the premiere. High up above the legendary East London indie cinema the Dalston Rio, in the abandoned attic space, lie the remains of the original Victorian auditorium of the then Kingsland Empire silent cinema, unused by living humans for 80 years. A small section of the auditorium will provide the space for the premiere. Not for the faint hearted, are you willing to sit and watch Don’t Knock Twice all alone in this abandoned space?

"We wish the brave souls competing the very best of luck. If the film gets too terrifying do not be tempted to knock twice on the creaky floor boards of the Rio... as you'll see in the film, things can always get worse," said John Giwa-Amu, Producer, Red and Black Films.

As runner up prizes, 50 pairs of tickets are available for Don’t Knock Twice in full luxurious comfort at the RIO in the main auditorium on Sunday April 2nd at 11am (doors open at 10.30am) and the cafe and bar will be open. Signed Photos of the cast are also available to giveaway.

For your chance to win the haunted Don’t Knock Twice Premiere-For-One, watch the trailer HERE then go to Frightfest.co.uk and answer the question - What do Two Knocks do?

Winners must be able to attend on the date. The first prize winner must be able to walk up four flights of stairs to reach the premiere event. No travel costs will be provided.

MARVEL COMICS PROUDLY PRESENTS "BLACK PANTHER: A NATION UNDER OUR FEET – PART ELEVEN"

"BLACK PANTHER: A NATION UNDER OUR FEET

FEATURING "DON’T FRONT" FROM DREAMVILLE RECORDING ARTIST, BAS

Innovative Marvel Video Series Bridges Marvel Comics with Top Music Talent

Marvel Comics continues to present this year’s breakout Marvel Super Hero – the Black Panther – through a monthly video series that continues to link the world of comics and hip-hop blending animated comics along with commentary from Black Panther writer, Ta-Nehisi Coates.  Additionally, “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Eleven” incorporates the exclusive debut of the brand new track, “Don’t Front” from Dreamville recording artist, Bas.

Within Marvel Comics’ Black Panther, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, “A Nation Under Our Feet” comes to a close. The dust settles, and peace comes to Wakanda once again. That is, if her political leaders can come to terms….T'Challa finds himself in the last place he ever expected: A republic.

Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples a brand new track, “Don’t Front” from Dreamville recording artist, Bas.

"I love comics for the themes they deal with. Death, love, regret, sorrow etc. even superheroes deal with, and are often fueled by, human emotions - no one is exempt,” said Bas. “I think my music touches on a lot of those same themes. Much like comic books, my songs have story arcs, and within these stories is a deeper emotion that I try to relay. Much as the magic of comics lies equally in the artwork, the story and the emotion, I like my music to tell a story as much sonically as through my words."


Black Panther #12 is available digitally through the Marvel Digital Comic Shop and at all local comic book retailers. To find a comic shop near you, visit www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook.
