Midnight Screening
Tumult

2012 / UK / Icelandic and English/ 13 min / HDCam
Director: Johnny Barrington
Print Source: Young Films

Norse tribesmen wander through a barren and beautiful landscape battle-bloodied and dying when they come across a tribe very different from themselves.

Sightseers

2013 / UK / 89 min / DCP Director: Ben Wheatley
Cast: Alice Lowe, Steve Oram Print Source: IFC

Filmmaker Ben Wheatley has made a name for himself with pitch black comedies
that mix domesticity and horror in equal measure. Films such as Down Terrace and Kill List are matter-of-fact and disturbing, submerging the audience in situations where real life appears as an illusion meant to protect one from the brutal tenancies hidden within. The droll and violent Sightseers takes this clever conceit and sets it on the road. Tina and Chris are on a sightseeing trip in the British countryside. She’s dowdy and awkward, while he’s receptive but harbors

a tempera really bad temper. It all begins with a piece of litter. When a tourist discards a candy wrapper on the ground, it makes Chris angry and jumpstarts a killing spree whereby the couple begins picking off anyone that gets on their nerves. Demented and darkly funny, Sightseers is a disquieting comedy that will make you think twice about where you throw that next candy wrapper.

2:00am 
The Rambler

2013 / USA / 97 min / Calvin Reeder Director: Calvin Reeder
Cast: Dermot Mulroney, Lindsay Pulsipher, Natasha Lyonne
Print Source: DCP

With a narrative arc that pays homage to Alejandro Jodorowski and characters as original as Jarmusch’s Dead Man, The Rambler is a psychedelic western that has been keeping audiences at the edge of their seats since its debut at Sundance. Dreamlike in its lyrical resemblances to David Lynch and Luis Bunuel, The Rambler stars Dermot Mulroney (Young Guns, The Wedding Date) as a guitar-toting drifter recently released from prison. In search of a long-lost brother, he crosses paths with a barbarous cast of characters and otherworldly depravities. Unyielding in its commitment to a surrealistic tone, and gorgeously shot amidst highly stylized landscapes, The Rambler is a psychotic expedition into the rarely traveled depths of Americana.

4:00am
Motel Hell
1980 / USA / 101 min / 35 mm film
Director: Kevin Connor
Cast: Rory Calhoun, Paul Linke, Nancy Parsons Print Source: Park Circus
There’s more in Farmer Vincent’s famous smoked sausage than choice cuts of pork. Just ask the unlucky travelers that find themselves buried up to their necks in the back garden at the Motel Hello, also known as Motel Hell. An imaginative send up of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Motel Hell takes the exploits of a cannibalistic family and adds a comedic spin to their disgusting and terrifying acts. And there’s a higher intention in harvesting secret ingredients than just great barbeque. Vincent and his sister Ida are convinced that they’re providing population control for an overcrowded planet. So swingers and bikers and rowdy teens must go off to the garden where quality time in the ground provides tender meat to be enjoyed by the masses in the small town in which they reside. Bizarre and funny and really sick, Motel Hell is a must-see, especially for the iconic scene of a man sporting a pig head and wielding a bloody 2×4!

6:00am
Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror
1981 / Italy / Italian with English subtitles / 85 min / Harry Guerro
Director: Andrea Bianchi
Cast: Karin Well, Gianluigi Chirizzi, Simone Mattioli, and Peter BarkPrint Source: 35 mm film
Get ready to scream at the most disgusting zombies ever to stalk the big screen in Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror. When a scientist uncovers the secret to raising the dead, all hell breaks loose in the Italian countryside. Trying to make friends with a wormy, rotting corpse that’s just crawled from its shallow grave is a bad idea. After the scientist is disposed of, more zombies rise and make their way to a quaint villa where a group of tourists are staying for the weekend. It doesn’t take long for the killing to start, and these people deserve it because they’re incredibly stupid! For a change of pace, these zombies have brains! They use power tools, a scythe, and even a battering ram to break down doors to get at their simpering, foolish prey. But that’s not all this amazingly sick, exploitation classic has in store for the brave viewer. Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror is most famous for the appearance of actor Peter Bark. 25 years old at the time, this diminutive man was cast to play an eight-year-old boy because of Italian labor laws. The result is truly bizarre, and cumulates in the most crazy and deranged scenes in the film. Not to be missed by true horror fans!

7:45am

City of the Walking Dead
(aka Nightmare City)

1980 / Italy, Mexico, Spain / Italian, English, Spanish with English subtitles / 88 min / Harry Guerro
Director: Umberto Lenzi

Cast: Hugo Stiglitz, Laura Trotter, Maria Rosaria Omaggio
Print Source: 35 mm film

Contrary to popular belief, 2002’s 28 Days Later was not the first movie to feature fast-moving zombies. That honor would go to the 1980 horror opus City of the Walking Dead, a crazy, bloody journey into terror that takes the widespread zombie panic of the original Dawn of the Dead and flies it across the ocean to Italy. When a plane containing scientists lands at a desolate airport, a group of reporters expecting a press conference

is shocked to find themselves attacked by the passengers and crew, who have been transformed into scarred, irradiated zombies out for blood. And not just any zombies: these living dead sprint like Olympic athletes, chasing down their hapless victims before bludgeoning them to death with hammers and axes, and even golf clubs! As the city lays ignorant of its impending doom, it’s up to one surviving reporter to alert the masses of the growing hoards that are hungry for blood and multiplying by the minute. Featuring loads of outrageous scenes of extreme, gory mayhem instigated by industrious zombies, City of the Walking Dead was created by Umberto Lenzi, also responsible for the notorious exploitation extravaganza, Cannibal Ferox.
