The Odeon of Death takes a look at the week’s events through the medium of cinema.

Humbug (1951)

On the night before Christmas, Eborizer Spooge is visited by the roaming, penitent ghost of Jacob Rees-Marley, who warns him to mend his ways or end up destroying the UK. “You have my word as an old Etonian,” says Spooge. Before drop-kicking Tiny Tim in the Thames.

The Odeon of Death can be found on Twitter at, perhaps not altogether surprisingly, @OdeonofDeath.
