1988's THE BLOB offers an exceptionally scary (and exceptionally gory) remake of the 1950s cult favorite - a rare reboot that’s superior to the original! It's paired with John Carpenter's darker, more disturbing take on the 1951 sci-fi classic THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD, with Kurt Russell and a crew of Arctic scientists pitted against a ravenous, shape-shifting alien being.
Italian zombies raid the screen with this double bill of cannibal movie auteur Umberto Lenzi's NIGHTMARE CITY and Andrea Bianchi's laugh-out-loud, so-bad-it’s-good lollapalooza of politically incorrect guts-and-grue, BURIAL GROUND. Both films are dubbed in English.
A 2-night tribute to the late Patrick Macnee includes some of his best film roles, beginning with tongue-in-cheek thriller THE HOWLING, with Macnee as the therapist who sends a TV anchorwoman on a sojourn to a New Age community - that she finds is made up of werewolves! Director Joe Dante will join us for a discussion after the film.
