Robert Caligari is a nasty piece of work. But today is the day he gets his comeuppance. Today is the day he’s going to die.

Kill the Beast present The Boy Who Kicked Pigs – their five star adaptation of Tom Baker’s glorious story. Promising beautiful projections, original music and over eight hats, it’s a grisly tale of one scoundrel’s attempt at infamy.
