Dir. Josh Lobo - 2019 - 82m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - $8 General / $6 Students

"Easily the most chilling film I've seen in 2019 so far…" - Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed

Christmas is supposed to be a time for peace and joyful family reunions. But when Matt (AJ Bowen) and his wife Karen (Susan Burke) show up unannounced at the home of his estranged brother Steve (Scott Poythress) to celebrate the holidays, they are instead greeted with a horrifying surprise: trapped in the basement is a man. But not just any man. Steve believes that his hostage is none other than the devil himself. As shock and skepticism turn to fear and paranoia, Matt and Karen find themselves facing a terrifying quandary: is Steve dangerously unhinged? Or could the mysterious stranger really be evil incarnate? Either way, the stage is set for a true Christmas from hell.

"A slow-burn tale of paranoia and familial obligation that does crawl out of the gate but crescendos in one satisfying ending. It may be small scaled in terms of setting and characters, but Lobo's debut is ambitious in effort." - Meagan Navarro, Bloody Disgusting

"A tense, slow-burn horror film." - Deirdre Crimmins, HighDef Digest

Dir. Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey (IGG) - 2016 - 68m - Uganda - In English - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special! $8 general / $6 students

Winner of Fantastic Fest 2016’s Audience Award!

Welcome to Wakaliwood, Uganda: home of “DA BEST OF DA BEST MOVIES!” and the vanguards of DIY commando cinema. PREPARE TO GET YOUR MIND BLOWN!!!

Under the guidance of writer/producer/director Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey (IGG) and with producer/star Alan Ssali Hofmanis, this crack crew of self-taught filmmakers and martial arts aficionados produce dozens of gonzo action films in the Kampala ghetto with budgets that rarely exceed $200 USD. Utilizing scrap parts to build computers, machine guns and a full-sized Huey helicopter, these real-life superheroes inspire more heart, imagination and soul than a thousand Hollywood blockbusters.

“[Wherein] a mild-mannered doctor, portrayed by Wakaliwood producer Hofmanis, is trained in the art of ass-kicking commando vengeance by a no-nonsense ghetto kid named Wesley Snipes(!) in an effort to steal back a family heirloom from Uganda's toughest gang. A multitude of subplots ensue at a breakneck pace as Nabwana hurls his charismatic cast through bombastic firefights, dizzying motorcycle chases, and an absolutely madcap prison riot – all photographed with a thrilling gonzo panache and seeped in gleefully silly, self-deprecating humor. And in Uganda’s finest storytelling tradition, the films are complemented by the acerbic wit of narrator/”Video Joker” VJ Emmie, who sums up the Wakaliwood experience with a single sentiment: ‘It is a love story...LOVE OF ACTION!’” (Peter Kuplowsky, Fantastic Fest)
