10 Year Anniversary Screening! “In the London of “Shaun Of The Dead,” dead-eyed city-dwellers shamble through the streets. Thoughtlessly, they make their way from place to place, sometimes alone, sometimes in clusters. Their glazed eyes suggest no purpose beyond mindless repetition. Eventually, some of them even turn into zombies. Director/co-writer Edgar Wright and star/co-writer Simon Pegg squeeze a lot of jokes into their horror comedy, but none quite as sharp as the one that slowly unfolds More »

We’re pulling out all the stops to bring you a line up filled with incredibly strange, ridiculously bloody, rarely screened Italian horror cinema. All shown on 35mm, the likes of this show might never make the silver screen again. If that isn’t enough, we’ll also be running retro 35mm trailers between the films. Join us and see if you can survive the madness! Films include Creepers, The Beyond, Zombie Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox and a fifth film TBA!

As a student of Hitchcock, Franklin met and studied the Master on the set of Topaz. Taking what he learned More »

“Trick ’R Treat [is] the rare Halloween feature that’s as interested in the day it exploits as it is in scares. It features monsters, murders, beautiful women, and the unquiet dead, as well as a little man named Sam who takes the rules of All Hallows’ Eve very seriously. Visually, it’s the kind of thing horror fans dream of, full of throbbing oranges and reds.”

“This lucid Swedish indie gem, adapted for the screen by John Ajvide Lindqvist from his novel and directed with imagination and restraint by Tomas Alfredson, releases the vampire movie from overwrought conventions like close-ups on trembling bosoms and bloody fangs, offering instead a coolly balanced and utterly compelling examination of alienation and love. Let the Right One In follows the burgeoning relationship between Oskar (Kare Hedebrant), a pale 12-year-old tormented by bullies and ignored by adults, and his new More »
