A shocking spree of sensational Seventies horror — screened from lovingly rescued 16mm prints.

We forever love the genre’s vibe from that time for its backwoods grit, Gothic grandeur and just plain bugnuttery. This era’s indie visions and exploitation hybrids have never stopped delivering on their grimy promise. Don’t miss these six far-out features ruled by folk curses, desert disasters, ancestral torments, orphaned teens, demented hillbillies and telekinetic murderers!

On a trip to meet his (white) girlfriend's parents in their affluent suburb, Chris Washington reads the familyʼs over-accommodating behavior as an awkward attempt to deal with their daughterʼs interracial relationship. But as the weekend progresses, and after a series of disturbing discoveries, Chris realizes that just because youʼre invited doesn't mean you're welcome. Composer Michael Abels conducts his disconcerting “gospel horror” original score, performed live by the LA Opera Orchestra and the amazing DC6 Singers (the performers heard on the soundtrack).

"If you've never seen HOUSE, you've never seen the full capacity of what cinema can do. Director Obayashi coming out of TV and commercials decided to use every trick in the book (and invent a whole host of new tricks) to tell his story of a group of teenage Japanese school girls who go to visit an eccentric Aunt in the country only to discover she's a bloodthirsty demon wanting to feast on their youth so she can get young herself.

And yet, the movie is a musical, happy go lucky, avante garde hilarious go for broke horror comedy coming of age story with scenes and effects and images you'll never forget."

Part of the Halloween-o-thon Extravaganza October 30-31st
Oct 30th, Midnight
The longest-running midnight movie of all time stars Tim Curry as the kinky yet endearing “transsexual from Transylvania” Dr. Frank N. Furter, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick as his hapless guests Brad and Janet, Meat Loaf as motorcycle-riding rough trade and author Richard O’Brien as the hunchbacked butler Riff Raff. It’s harmless musical fun—a delightful spoof of Hollywood horror movies and Old Dark House melodramas. The Rocky Horror Picture Show was the first—and is still the best—interactive movie experience!
Walt Disney Concert Hall

A Halloween tradition! Don’t miss classic silent cinema with a live organ soundtrack. Film critic Leonard Maltin described Clark Wilson as a “master of silent film and showman of the first order” for his organ accompaniments of silent films. This Halloween, Wilson performs a haunting score for John S. Robertson’s 1920 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, starring John Barrymore.


A new 10-episode season starts on FX Sept 9th, with new episode coming to Hulu a day later.

We've loved the two previous seasons based on some of the dumbest vampires you'll ever meet all done in mockumentary style.

I Know What You Did Last Summer The Series
Prime Video
Oct 15

I Know What You Did Last Summer is a modern take on the 1997 film that honors the same chilling premise – in a town full of secrets, a group of teenagers are stalked by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night.


This ode to George A. Romero’s famous flesh-eaters reminds us that sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a horde of hungry zombies trying to rip them apart.
