FLICK OR TREAT: HALLOWEEN HORROR

Beyond the therapeutic, enjoying horror films is a perfect form of both individual and collective ritual, as we come together to enjoy the many thrills that the cinema can offer us. 

Two Gods | Official Trailer

Beautifully composed in black and white, Two Gods renders its subjects with great intimacy to create an invaluable document of the Muslim American experience.

A little miracle of a short from Iranian master Jafar Panahi, this beautiful film finds echoes of his 2018 feature 3 Faces. A moving examination of performance and personal liberty in the face of religious oppression, Hidden is a tender and intimate mystery that builds to a piercing conclusion.

Winner of a Grand Jury Prize at SXSW, Play It Safe is an ingeniously tense interrogation of unconscious racism in seemingly liberal spaces. Shot on 16mm, the film’s audacious finale stamps a visceral exclamation point on a remarkable calling card for director Mitch Kalisa and actor Jonathan Ajayi.

A young man goes AWOL in Bungalow — a film uniquely attuned to a slow-burning despair barely contained by its outwardly ordinary appearance. The hugely impressive first feature from Köhler — indicative of the low-key yet deeply existential filmmaking would become characteristic of the Berlin School.

Now showing here.

Recalibrating the end of the world as an apocalypse of identity, In My Room is a profound spin on “Robinson Crusoe” from Berlin School director Ulrich Köhler. With welcome appearances from both Pet Shops Boys and Clint Eastwood, this wry gem is an ingenious portrait of a bourgeois life in ruins.

Okay so maybe in real life armed troops in hazmat suits didn't raid small towns,…

Still having fun with the Last Drive-In and this is absolutely a bonkers Italian 5 star movie. It’s just nonstop ridiculousness and crazy over the top gore. It doesn’t make any sense and it peaks with a helicopter crashing into a theater so it’s just truly great. I couldn’t even begin to guess the number of times I’ve watched this.

Produced by our lord and savior Dario Argento, directed by Bava Jr, written by Dardano Sacchetti, starring a cast of…

‘They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.’

The perfect slice of midnight madness—Italo chaos magic courtesy of Bava and Argento that pits Unsuspecting theater goers under siege by pus dripping fluid spouting blood slathered deadite demoni. The escalation here is key, constantly one upping the over the top factor with each set piece slathered in more gore filled chaotic absurdity. Coke head punx, Tony the pimp, dump trucks of gore chunks, a slammin’ score,…
