In space, no one can hear you scream…
but the Goldsmith Cinema has great acoustics. Rest assured, between the eerie atmosphere, conniving corporate plotting, and one of the most memorable monsters to ever stalk the screen, this movie is still grade-A nightmare fodder. And don’t forget Weaver’s star turn as science fiction’s ultimate heroine.
2017. USA. Dir: Jordan Peele. With Daniel
Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford.

A grizzled whiskey-guzzling Russell and a team of Antarctic researchers fight for survival against one of the most disturbing monstrosities to creep across the screen: a deceptive alien that takes on the form of its victims.

1942. USA. Dir: Jacques Tourneur. With Simone Simon, Kent Smith. 73 min.
In this twisted fable about the caging of female sexuality, a woman with a fascination for large felines meets a well-to-do fella, falls in love, and gets married.

1977. Japan. Dir: Nobuhiko Obayashi. With Kimiko Ikegami. 88 min. 35mm print
A schoolgirl named Gorgeous and her friends head out to Auntie’s creaky country home to be devoured one by one by a bloodthirsty piano, phantom mattresses, and other ghoulish traps. With a stream-of-consciousness plot and boldly experimental design, this absurdist ghost take comes to life as a candy-colored pop art hallucination.
2003. USA. Dir: Tommy Wiseau. With Wiseau, Greg Sestero. 99 min.
Wiseau plays Johnny, a successful banker whose life gets torn apart when his fiancee Lisa starts seeing his best friend, Mark; Wiseau also plays director, producer, and writer of the crown jewel of so-bad-it’s-good movies. Meant to be his Citizen Kane, this picture may indeed fundamentally alter how you view the film medium (and footballs).
