Dir. Kevin Phillips - 2017 - 102m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special! $8 General / $6 student with i.d.s.

A harrowing but meticulously observed look at teenage lives in the era prior to the Columbine High School massacre, SUPER DARK TIMES marks the feature debut of gifted director Kevin Phillips, whose critically acclaimed 2015 short film "Too Cool For School" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. Zach (Owen Phillips) and Josh (Charlie Tahan) are best friends growing up in a leafy Upstate New York suburb in the 1990s, where teenage life revolves around hanging out, looking for kicks, navigating first love and vying for popularity. When a traumatic incident drives a wedge between the previously inseparable pair, their youthful innocence abruptly vanishes. Each young man processes the tragedy in his own way, until circumstances grow increasingly complex and spiral into violence. Phillips dives headlong into the confusion of teenage life, creating evocative atmosphere out of the murky boundaries between adolescence and adulthood, courage and fear, and good and evil.

“A gripping, visceral movie that those of us who grew up in suburbs similar to the one depicted here might experience as deja vu. This is how it feels to finally recognize the off-ness of someone you've always taken for granted.” - Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

“An effective, nasty thriller and a rare horror film that provides an emotional investment because the portrait of teenhood is utterly authentic.” - John Fink, The Film Stage

“A dangerous mix of adolescent tensions and a deadly deed that ignites something much more explosive.” - Matt Donato, We Got This Covered

“Phillips' collaborators work in harmony with the natural, nuanced acting; credits across the board are stylish and smooth, with lensing a standout.” - 

Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International

“That special kind of film that we as genre fans are always desperate to discover, the one that we fall in love with and show to all of our friends. It's essentially a new classic that will stand the test of time.” - Brad Miska, Bloody Disgusting

Friday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Paul Morrissey - 1973 - 95m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation! $8 general / $6 students with i.d.s

Paul Morrisey's 1973 trash-art classic is a beautifully filmed and elegantly turned out psychodrama that is in equal parts, horror film and satire.  This re-evaluating horror tale of the mad Baron Frankenstein and his perverse creative urges stars the inimitable Udo Kier, Joe Dallesandro and Monique Van Vooren.

“A riot. Even its closing tableau is socially transcendent and transgressive.” - Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com

“Disgusting? Yes. Obscene? Oh, certainly. Likely to deprave and corrupt? Paul Morrissey absolutely hopes so. And above all else, wildly funny.” - Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy

“The film's gross-out climax has the mad-scientist Baron (Udo Kier) screwing his undead Bride on a gurney, then ravaging Marlon Brando with a spot-on parody of Last Tango.” - Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

"To say that the film is for specialized tastes understates the case. It's simply a gloriously decadent, degenerate joke that you either get, or you don’t.” - Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Oct 28
Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Paul Morrissey - 1974 - 90m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation! $8 general / $6 students with i.d.s

The 1974 trash art classic!  Starring once again Joe Dallesandro & Udo Kier, it's Paul Morrissey's brash mixture of humor, horror and sex is a bitingly funny satire of modern values--and a revelation to fans of the horror film. In "Blood for Dracula," the infamous count searches Italy for "pure" blood.

“One of the two schlocky horror comedies Paul Morrissey made in Italy in 1974... Blood for Dracula is the sexier and funnier.” - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

“Often startlingly beautiful to look at.” - Time Out

“Stylishly directed, atmospheric, funny, and intense enough to please gorehounds--especially at the climax.” - TV Guide

“Outrageous, hilarious and shocking, this is trash art at its very best.” - Ben Cobb, Film4

“Desperate for virgin blood, [Udo] Kier's wan, fussy vampire strategically heads to Catholic Italy, but the food sucks ("They put so much oil here on everything!" - Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
