Straight To Hell Death And The Compass Film Poster


Double-bill of films from cult British director Alex Cox. In 'Straight to Hell' (1986), a gang of bank robbers headed by the hit-man Norwood (Sy Richardson) make their way into the desert with a suitcase full of stolen loot. They bury the money and stumble into an old oilfield settlement, the home of the caffeine-addicted McMahon gang. Everybody tries to play it cool, but with all these bizarre characters and the massive amounts of coffee being drunk it won't be long before the tensions become unbearable. Also starring former-Clash frontman Joe Strummer. In 'Death and the Compass' (1992), celebrated detective Lonnrot (Peter Boyle) is on the trail of the notorious Red Sharlach (Christoper Eccleston) and will stop at nothing to bring him to justice. But when he finally tracks the villain down to the Villa Triste-Le-Roy, what he encounters there will tax his celebrated reasoning power to the very limit.
