Friday Night Frights

View Past Events


Around the world, only a smattering of the best horror films come out in theaters, and gobs of great gore go softly into the night, never to be screamed at on the silver screen. In the past, Cinefamily has reserved just the month of October as an excuse to make merry in the macabre and delight in an onslaught of slaughter; and once All Hallow’s Eve has come and gone, our poor patrons must lurch back to their bloodless daily lives, secretly wishing that the terrifying times never need end. Well, fear not, for now every month is horrific at the Cinefamily! Midnight is the witching hour, and every other Friday night, Friday Night Frights brings you the finest cuts in upcoming horror and gruesome genre cinema, as well as devious picks from the repertory crypt, all with guests galore.

Jack Sholder’s The Hidden is that rare treat for horror fans; a late 80′s genre film with a great cast, great premise and gonzo attitude that is largely overlooked, even by those who seek out this sort of fare. Starring a pre-Twin Peaks Kyle MacLachlan and Michael Nouri as LA cops on the trail of a body-hopping killer, the movie innovates story elements that would be pillaged by studios later to lesser effect (Jason Goes to Hell, Fallen) doing so with the run-and gun recklessness of 80′s era exploitation. The cast, rounded out by Clu Gulager, Richard Brooks and Lin Shaye, commit to their roles as if it’s Shakespeare, and the awesomely silly plot reveals push the movie straight into the sublime. This glorious gem rarely, if ever, screens, so you really, really don’t wanna miss it.

Dir Jack Sholder, 1987. 35mm, 96 min.
