Friday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. David Cronenberg - 1977 - 91m - ALL SEATS $8

Picking up where the taboo-busting SHIVERS left off, RABID is the next-level iteration of Cronenberg’s obsession with sexual body violence in the form of a late nite creature feature. After a motorcycle accident, former adult film star Marilyn Chambers wakes up in a hospital with new skin and a new appetite. As the city of Montréal is transformed into an incubator for gunk-spewing vampires, the ghostly Chambers finds herself at war with her body and the world. This is a young Cronenberg firing on all cylinders. Featuring a focused and intense performance from Chambers, clever statements on vanity and greed, and a grotesque lil’ beastie who looks like a penis with teeth, RABID is a high-water mark in lysergic horror. This includes the show-stopping scene that involves a machine gun and Santa Claus.

"A delight(fully disgusting) sleazy/cerebral combination that only Cronenberg can deliver." — Stacie Ponder, FINAL GIRL

"Cronenberg casts [Chambers] in a different kind of skin flick, and allows her to weaponise her seductive charms and to penetrate those who would do the same to her - all in the service of an animalistic lust (for blood) that is Insatiable..." - Anton Bitel, Projected Figures

Dir. Kristina Buozyte & Bruno Samper - 2022 - 112m - Lithuania, U.S.

Starring Raffiella Chapman, Eddie Marsan, Rosy McEwen, Richard Brake, Melanie Gaydos

After the collapse of Earth’s ecosystem, Vesper, a 13-year-old girl struggling to survive with her Father, must use her wits, strength and bio-hacking abilities to fight for the future.

"Something wholly unique — at once modern and timeless, nostalgic for a genre only just created, already pining for images freshly cast up on screen." - Ben Croll, TheWrap

"One of best films from Fantasia 2022. An exceptional look at humanity’s survival on a dying planet where capitalism still has a firm grip. It shows greed as a prison, and we’ll all suffer from it." - Sara Clements, Pay or Wait

"Their world-building is astounding. Through a mixture of VFX and practical effects, they have crafted a world that feels as ancient as it does futuristic." - Marya E. Gates, The Playlist

Dir. Alex Phillips - 2022 - 71m - ALL SEATS $8

Roscoe, a janitor for a scuzzy love motel, whose girlfriend has brought another man home for strange rituals, drifts through life until he discovers a hidden stash of powerful hallucinogenic worms. 

Guided by visions of a giant floating worm, he encounters benny, a moped enthusiast trying to manifest a baby from an inanimate sex doll. 

They fall in love with doing worms together on a downward spiral into the primordial ooze.

“A euphoria-fuelled rampage.” - Variety

“Wild and distinct”- rogerebert.com

“Disturbing, disgusting, demented, and occasionally delightful.” - Screen Anarchy

“The brain stickiness of the title all jacked up and full of worms is one of the most apt in recent cinema.” - Nerdist  

“An underground comedy in the taboo-breaking spirit of john waters and his ’70s dreamlanders; the type of film where everyone is high and naked and reveling in filth and degeneracy” - Letterboxd 

“To ‘do worms’ is so dumb it is brilliant.”- Paste Magazine

“An exquisite-corpse game constructed out of slimy viscera or a burroughs-esque cut-up” - In Review

“It’s sure to become a gross-out classic that’ll have audiences talking for years to come.” - Dread Central

“This is immersive filmmaking with a strong outsider voice.” - Eye For Film

“Sleaze radiates off the lo-fi imagery like a noxious green cloud so thick you can practically smell it.” - Killer Horror Critic

Dir. Kevin Shaw - 2022 - 82m - No Matinees

When city planners impose unwanted changes, one person can easily feel helpless - but a group of people with a common cause just might find enough collective strength to fight the power.  This is the story of the parents, students, administrators and students of Chicago’s National Teachers Academy, a high-performing public elementary school in an African-American neighborhood, who join forces in an effort to do just that. When the powers that be announce plans to phase out NTA’s current K-8 curriculum and transform it into a high school drawing students from other schools, the community senses gentrification at work and gets organized. Kevin Shaw’s riveting documentary captures the struggle to save NTA through all its highs and lows - introducing us to charismatic young leaders taking a stand to protect their academic futures.

"A sensationally effective Chicago documentary tore the roof clean off three different theaters at the 2022 True/False Film Fest... Kevin Shaw’s film delivered the visceral impact of all six “Rocky” movies and a couple of “Creed” films put together." - Chicago Tribune

"During its premiere at True/False, where it was chosen as the Show Me True/False honoree, “Little Light” regularly moved members of the audience to groans, gasps, cheers, tears and, finally, a standing ovation." - Los Angeles Times
