Tuesday, September 1st – Monday, September 7th, 2015


The Serpent and the Rainbow

A film by Wes Craven starring Bill Pullman


Scientist Dennis Allan visits Haiti to investigate the rumor of a drug which renders the recipient totally paralyzed, but conscious. The drug’s effects often fool doctors, who declare the victims dead. Could this be the origin of the “zombie” legend?


Child’s Play 2

A film by John Lafia starring Brad Dourif, Alex Vincent, Jenny Agutter


Andy Barclay has been placed in a foster home after the tragic events of the first film, since his mother was committed. In an attempt to save their reputation, the manufacturers of Chucky reconstruct the killer doll, to prove to the public that nothing was wrong with it in the first place. In doing so, they also bring the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray back to life. As Chucky tries to locate Andy, the body count rises. Will Andy be able to escape, or will Chucky succeed in possessing his body?


Deep Red

A film by Dario Argento


An early masterpiece from Dario Argento. An English jazz pianist living in Rome witnesses the brutal hatchet murder of a renowned psychic and is quickly drawn into the savage crime. With the help of a tenacious female reporter, the pair track a twisted trail of deranged clues and relentless violence towards a shocking climax that has ripped screams from the throats of audiences for more than 30 years!
