Italy’s own “Godfather of Gore” goes Gothic! Lucio Fulci (Zombie, The Gates of Hell) gruesomely reimagines the classic Edgar Allen Poe tale with Patrick Magee (A Clockwork Orange) and Mimsy Farmer (The Perfume of the Lady in Black) in tow. When a young couple goes missing in a sleepy English village, Scotland Yard Inspector Gorley (David Warbeck, The Beyond) is brought in to assist on the case. But what starts off as routine investigation turns into a murder inquiry when the couple are found dead in mysterious circumstances.

Filmmaker Issa L√≥pez creates a world that recalls the early films of Guillermo del Toro, imbued with her own gritty urban spin on magical realism to conjure a wholly unique experience that audiences will not soon forget.

In Sound Stories, Christian Marclay (United States, b. 1955) fuses art and technology, using Snapchat videos as raw material. A collaboration between the artist and Snapchat, this innovative project draws on the sounds and images of everyday life found on the multimedia messaging app Snapchat. Using algorithms created by a team of engineers at Snap Inc., Marclay experiments with millions of publicly posted Snapchat videos to create five immersive audiovisual installations, two of which are interactive.

35mm GMK GIANT MONSTERS ALL-OUT ATTACK
Sun, August 25, 2019
10:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Vista Theatre
4473 Sunset Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90027
GMK Giant Monsters All Out Attack is essentially the 21st century’s Destroy All Monsters. Many of our favorite Kaiju-Mothra, Baragon, King Ghidorah-return to do all-out battle with Godzilla. We also see the seeds of the direction that the most recent American Godzilla King of the Monsters appears to take with its notion of certain kaiju being “guardians” of the earth.
