If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing your own arm off, and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you’d have to assume that things couldn’t get much worse. In Martin’s case, that was only the beginning.
Picking up immediately where the original left off, Dead Snow; Red vs. Dead wastes no time getting right to the gore-filled action, leaving a bloody trail of intestines in its wake. Director Tommy Wirkola returns to the helm with a vengeance, coming up with more inventive ways to maim and dismember than you ever thought possible. Combining wry humor with horrific worst-case scenarios, this follow-up to the 2009 Midnight classic is sure to shock the weak-of-heart and delight even the most hard-core fans of the horror genre. Colonel Herzog is back, and he is not to be f&*ked with.
"Bigger, brasher, bloodier, and with more bowels, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is a blast." - Brian Tallerico, Film Threat

Based on the novel by Joe Hill, Horns is a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery and romance. The film follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe, "Harry Potter" films), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses - an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend's tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.
"A fable-like horror mystery with strong comic and romantic tendencies, Alexandre Aja's Horns draws on source material by cult scribe (and son of Stephen King) Joe Hill to deliver something much more beguiling than the straighter genre fare (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) that made his name." - John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
"It's like a supernatural version of "Gone Girl," and yet, there is some very, very dark comedy in the film as well…" - Drew MCWeeny, HitFix
Listen Up Philip
Nov 1 to Nov 6
Saturday to Thursday 5:30pm ONLY!
Dir. Alex Ross Perry - 2014 - 109m - No Matinees
A complex, intimate, and highly idiosyncratic comedy, Listen Up Philip is a literary look at the triumph of reality over the human spirit. Anger rages in Philip (Jason Schwartzman) as he awaits the publication of his sure-to-succeed second novel. He feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant crowds and noise, a deteriorating relationship with his photographer girlfriend Ashley (Elisabeth Moss), and his indifference to promoting his own work. When Philip’s idol Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject — himself.
"The acerbically funny LISTEN UP PHILIP counts as a great leap forward for Alex Ross Perry. Assured and at times dazzling." – Manohla Dargis, The New York Time
"Remarkably achieved…told by Perry with immense filmmaking verve and novelistic flourish, and acted by an exceptional ensemble cast. Formally announces Perry as one of the most promising young talents on the indie scene." – Scott Foundas, Variety
"The film feeds off Philip's tart anti-energy; it helps that Schwartzman, in what might be the performance of his career, gives an exhilarating charge even to his ill-tempered sulks." - Max Nelson, Film Comment Magazine
"Perhaps the major work of the modern American low-budget indie scene." – Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, Mubi
