A heady mix of classic noir, blood-chilling horror and high suspense, THE BODY is a thriller following a detective (José Coronado) who searches for a corpse that has gone missing from a morgue. A Goya Award nominee for Best New Director, Paolo proves to be a master storyteller with this absorbing plot, which keeps viewers guessing about both the strange circumstances surrounding the victim’s death and the reasons her body has disappeared. “…the kind of breathless, relentless genre fare whose sole aim is to generate suspense, and it pretty much succeeds.” - Jonathan Holland, Variety. In Spanish with English subtitles.
A group of kids complicit in a horrible accident find themselves being picked off one by one years later on the night of their prom; among them is scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, fresh off of HALLOWEEN and THE FOG. Leslie Nielsen appears as Jamie's dad in this quintessential ’70s slasher, one of the most enduring horror films to come out of the Canadian tax shelter era - and certainly the one with the grooviest disco soundtrack!
John Carpenter's stark homage to Howard Hawks’ RIO BRAVO stars Austin Stoker as a policeman defending a defunct police station against criminals in blighted South Central L.A. Banter flies fast and furious between charismatic convict Darwin Joston and policewoman Laurie Zimmer as faceless, virtually supernatural marauders lay siege to the precinct. This remains one of Carpenter’s most effective pictures, an edge-of-your-seat thriller that put him on the map as an imaginative, creative force to be reckoned with.
