Dir. Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman - 2018 - 97m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - $8 General / $6 Students

Experience three spine-tingling tales of terror to haunt your dreams. A debunker of all things paranormal, Professor Phillip Goodman (Andy Nyman) has devoted his life to exposing phony psychics and fraudulent supernatural shenanigans on his own television show. His skepticism is put to the test, however, when he receives a file of three chilling, inexplicable cases: a night watchman (Paul Whitehouse) haunted by disturbing visions as he patrols an abandoned asylum; an edgy young man (Black Mirror's Alex Lawther) involved in a hellish car accident deep in the woods; and a wealthy former banker (Sherlock's Martin Freeman) visited by the poltergeist spirit of his unborn child. Even scarier: each of the these macabre stories seems to have a sinister connection to Professor Goodman's own life. Will they make a believer of him yet?

“A witty and well-crafted love letter to old-school horror tropes.” - Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

“Its intricacy and its sense of drama make it entertaining and it does a great job of finding eeriness in provincial British settings.” - Edward Porter, Sunday Times (UK)

“Presided over with assurance and some seriously mordant wit” - 

Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

“A stylishly made picture, combining a retro horror feel with a modern sensibility. Ghost Stories is absolutely one of 2018's don't-miss-it horror events.” - Mike McGranaghan Aisle Seat

Lowlife

May 18 to May 19
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm

Dir. Ryan Prows - 2018 - 97m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - $8 Gen / $6 Stu.

What happens when you throw together a fallen Mexican wrestler with serious rage issues, a just-out-of-prison ex-con with a regrettable face tattoo, and a recovering junkie motel owner in search of a kidney? That’s the premise of the berserk, blood-spattered, and wickedly entertaining feature debut from Ryan Prows. Set amidst the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, Lowlife zigzags back and forth in time as it charts how fate—and a ruthless crime boss—connects three down-and-out reprobates mixed up in an organ harvesting scheme that goes from bad to worse to off-the-rails insane. Careening from savagely funny to just plain savage to unexpectedly heartfelt, this audacious thriller serves up nonstop adrenaline alongside hard-hitting commentary about the state of contemporary America

“Nicely calibrates a twisty course between straight crime melodrama and black comedy, one that has cult-following potential among adventurous genre fans.” - Dennis Harvey, Variety

“One of those exciting feature debuts that announces the arrival of a filmmaker who instantly has your attention.” - Haleigh Foutch, Collider

“A movie with the sole purpose of an adrenalin rush, designed to strap you to your seat, entertain you, and spit you back into reality, exhausted but satisfied.” - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

Pyewacket

Jun 15 to Jun 16
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Adam MacDonald - 2018 - 88m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - $8 Gen. / $6 Stu.

When you’re dealing with demons, be careful what you wish for… In this ultra-unsettling occult nightmare, teenage Leah (Nicole Muñoz) finds solace from the recent death of her father—and from her strained relationship with her mother (Laurie Holden)—by dabbling in the dark arts. It all seems like harmless fun at first, until a blow out argument leads Leah to do the unthinkable: put a death curse on her mother. No sooner has the girl performed the ritual than she regrets it. But it may be too late, as an evil presence known as Pyewacket begins to make itself known—and threatens to destroy both mother and daughter. Backcountry director Adam MacDonald builds hair-raising tension around what’s both a complex mother-daughter tale and a frightening fable about our darkest desires.

“It's the rare horror film that's actually more effective in psychological terms than in suspense ones.” - Dennis Harvey, Variety

As a psychodrama about a troubled mother and daughter, this movie is gripping from start to finish.” - Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times

“Pyewacket is a slow burn chiller that is all the more impressive for its subtlety.” - Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
