Story

Last year, the Bristol Bad Film Club raised £670 for Children In Need by hosting a 24 hour bad movie marathon and enduring the likes of Zaat, American Cyborg and a film where William Shatner plays a killer gigolo.

This year, plans were set to do something similar, but then Donald Trump, a man who built his entire presidential campaign on Islamophobia, xenophobia, and violent racism, won the US election.

Much has been written in the past week about the consequences of Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States including how all his hate-filled rhetoric might have been nothing but bluster, however the sad fact is that this man is now in charge of the most powerful military force in the entire world and he has repeatedly stated over the past 16 months that he believes climate change to be a hoax and that he'll dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency, hinted he'll curtail the freedoms of the press and, most likely, will put women's rights back about 60 years.

Now usually we support local charities, but the US election, whether we want to admit it or not, is going to affect us all and the planet in numerous ways, that's why we're going to be donating all money raised by this movie marathon to the following charities:

Race Equality First - www.refweb.org.uk
EVAW - www.endviolenceagainstwomen.org.uk
Stonewall - www.stonewall.org.uk

By supporting these charities, we hope to help and support causes that might face a difficult time over the next four years.

So why monster movies?

Well, in the 1950s giant monsters came to symbolise the fears of the age be it communism, atomic power or a genuine fear of giant spiders. Now that a large orange dinosaur is in charge of nuclear launch codes, we felt it would be appropriate. Plus these films often feature some sort of monster grabbing women...

We know this isn't a march or a candle-lit vigil, but hey, we're a bad film club and raising money for charities is what we do!

    We're five hours out from completely our 24hr marathon... and we're shattered! BUT from people coming along, we've raised £200 at The Hare pub itself, so we've hit our target overall! However, please feel free to continue donating if you wish. As I type this, we've just finished watching Fire Maidens From Outer Space and it was SO... dull. I'd love to see you stay awake watching it at 6am...
