Banned upon its original release in 1981, Andrzej Żuławski’s stunningly choreographed nightmare of a marriage unraveling is an experience unlike any other. Professional spy Mark (Sam Neill) returns to his West Berlin home to find his wife Anna (Isabelle Adjani, in a role that earned her Best Actress at Cannes) insistent on a divorce. As Anna's frenzied behavior becomes ever more alarming, Mark discovers a truth far more sinister than his wildest suspicions. With its pulsating score, visceral imagery, and some of the most haunting performances ever captured on screen, Possession is cinematic delirium at its most intoxicating.

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!
