In this enigmatic and unsettling meditation on adolescent angst, 13-year-old John (Charlie Shotwell) discovers an unfinished bunker while exploring the neighboring woods—a deep hole in the ground. Seemingly without provocation, he drugs his affluent parents (Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Ehle) and older sister (Taissa Farmiga), holding them captive within the bunker. As they anxiously wait for John to free them from the hole, the boy returns home, where he can finally enjoy and explore a newfound independence.

Friday, Aug 6, Noon

THIS FRIDAY we open the 15th annual group show, CRAZY4CULT. Our signature show, and the topic of 2 popular art books, returns to G1988 with an amazing line-up of artists creating pieces inspired by popular cult films (which, as a reminder, is any film with a cult following). We're so proud of this year's installment and the work will be released online, and displayed in-gallery, starting THIS FRIDAY at Noon PT. Mark your calendars now! You will not want to miss this quintessential Los Angeles art show...

Starts Friday Aug 6
