SHHHH
2014, 90 min, USA, Dir: Jason Rutherford

If you’ve ever wanted to kill someone talking or texting near you in a theater, this is the film for you! Harris (James Henderson) and his mother love the movies, but sometimes other audience members spoil things; when disruptive filmgoers start dropping like flies, Harris finds himself confronting his past and questioning his sanity. This slasher comedy with an ’80s vibe includes such familiar faces as Austin Stoker (ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13), Kitten Natividad (BENEATH THE VALLEY OF THE ULTRA-VIXENS) and Troma Entertainment co-founder Lloyd Kaufman.


ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 (1976)
1976, CKK Corp., 90 min, USA, Dir: John Carpenter

John Carpenter's stark homage to Howard Hawks’ RIO BRAVO stars Austin Stoker as a policeman defending a defunct police station against criminals in blighted South Central L.A. Banter flies fast and furious between charismatic convict Darwin Joston and policewoman Laurie Zimmer as faceless, virtually supernatural marauders lay siege to the precinct. This remains one of Carpenter’s most effective pictures, an edge-of-your-seat thriller that put him on the map as an imaginative, creative force to be reckoned with.
