The Lure

Mar 3 to Mar 4
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Agnieszka Smoczynska - 2015 - 92m - Poland - In Polish with English subtitles - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS - $8 general / $6 students with i.d.s

DOOR PRIZES COURTESY OF THE MIGHTY BUBONICON 49!

In this bold, genre-defying horror-musical mashup — the playful and confident debut of Polish director Agnieszka Smoczynska — a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters are drawn ashore in an alternate '80s Poland to explore the wonders and temptations of life on land. Their tantalizing siren songs and otherworldly aura make them overnight sensations as nightclub singers in the half-glam, half-decrepit fantasy world of Smoczynska's imagining. In a visceral twist on Hans Christian Andersen's original Little Mermaid tale, one sister falls for a human, and as the bonds of sisterhood are tested, the lines between love and survival get blurred. A savage coming-of-age fairytale with a catchy new-wave soundtrack, lavishly grimy sets, and outrageous musical numbers, The Lure explores its themes of sexuality, exploitation, and the compromises of adulthood with energy and originality.

“The freshest  lm I saw at Sundance this year . . . Nothing short of a stunning feature debut.” — LAURA KERN, FILM COMMENT

“Never less than arresting. There’s nothing else like it in the sea.” — GUY LODGE, VARIETY

“Imagine if Gaspar Noé and (the late) Andrzej ?u?awski collaborated on a remake of The Little Mermaid. Wholly original and ominously enchanting.” — DAVID EHRLICH, INDIEWIRE

The Devil's Candy

Apr 28 to Apr 29
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Sean Byrne - 2015 - 80m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS - $8 General / $6 Students with i.d.s

A not-so-average family wrestles with Satan in a house from hell in this heavy metal-charged shocker from the director of The Loved Ones. Diehard metalhead and struggling artist Jesse (Ethan Embry) moves with his wife (Shiri Appleby) and daughter (Kiara Glasco) to a middle-of-nowhere Texas town, unaware that the new house they got for an unbelievable deal comes with a grisly history. Disturbing demonic goings-on culminate with the appearance of Ray (The Walking Dead’s Pruitt Taylor Vince). He’s the home’s former resident, and he’s here to do the Devil’s bidding. The cranked-to-eleven soundtrack blasts Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, and a thunderous original score by doom rock legends Sunn O))).

“The Devil's Candy offers a lean and slick homage to occult films, but with a knowing edge that suggests director Sean Byrne is aiming for the critical rafters.” - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

“It is a lean, mean, tight (under 80 minutes) thriller that draws from other films like it without feeling derivative.” - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

“Byrne's artful use of image and sound takes the narrative to a whole new level. Heavy metal music dominates the soundtrack, as well as the characters' lives, providing an ideal conduit for the demonic forces lurking beneath the story's surface.” - Eric Kohn, indieWire
