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

Dir. Nacho Vigalondo - 2017 - 110m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHTMOVIE MADNESS presentation - $8 General / $6 students

Gloria (Anne Hathaway in a great performance) is an out-of-work party girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.

“It's a brilliant concept, executed by writer-director Vigalondo with a perfect balance of pop-culture irony and sincere storytelling.” - Rafer Guzman, Newsday

“From its weird little prologue to a nearly perfect ending, Colossal is a trip in multiple meanings of that word.” - Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com

“In this observant, entertaining, wildly imaginative movie, just about everything has more than one meaning.” - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

ALSO PLAYING SATURDAY JUNE 3 AT 10:30PM

A dream of dark and troubling things . . . 

David Lynch’s 1977 debut feature, Eraserhead, is both a lasting cult sensation and a work of extraordinary craft and beauty. With its mesmerizing black-and-white photography by Frederick Elmes and Herbert Cardwell, evocative sound design, and unforgettably enigmatic performance by Jack Nance, this visionary nocturnal odyssey continues to haunt American cinema like no other film.

“What makes Eraserhead great -- and still, perhaps the best of all Lynch's films? Intensity. Nightmare clarity. And perhaps also it's the single-mindedness of its vision.” - Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

“What a masterpiece of texture, a feat of artisanal attention, an ingenious assemblage of damp, dust, rock, wood, hair, flesh, metal, ooze.” - Nathan Lee, Village Voice

“It's beautiful and strange, with its profoundly disturbing ambient sound design of industrial groaning, as if filmed inside some collapsing factory or gigantic dying organism.” - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“A truly original film, and one not easily forgotten.” – Not Coming to a Theater Near You

“A unique concoction of Canadian horror movie and After-School Special gone terribly, terribly wrong.” – Canuxploitation!
