Fifteen years before Stranger Things, Richard Kelly set the template and the high-water mark with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium.

Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days 06 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank's maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum.

Described by its director as ''The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick'', Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katharine Ross, and ER star Noah Wyle and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran.

Kill Baby ... Kill ! - The Restored Mario Bava 1966 Masterpiece

Aug 4 to Aug 5
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Mario Bava - 1966 - 83m - Italy - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation - $8 general / $6 students

NEW 50th Anniversary Restoration! Considered by many to be one of Italian horror maestro Mario Bava's best, this occult murder mystery skillfully interweaves elements of the 'giallo' thriller formula with a creepy Gothic ghost story. Set in modern day Transylvania, an evil curse has fallen on the village which has been plagued by a series of bizarre murders, in which female victims keep turning up with gold coins embedded in their hearts. In order to free the village from this evil curse, the local sorceress (Fabienne Dali) must find and destroy the vengeful Baroness Graps (Gianni Vivaldi), who along with the ghost of her murdered daughter, seek to claim the villagers' souls in retribution (with pretty Erica Blanc next on the list).

"In director Mario Bava lies one of Italy's most important film talents.  Kill, Baby...Kill! is a small masterpiece of its kind, comparing favorably with the late Val Lewton's horror programmers of the '40s. [It's] handled so skillfully as to revitalize the genre." - Variety
