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.

FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Piranha - The Ultimate Edition

5/8 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

Co-presented by SECRET SIXTEEN.

Our screening comes from the lone 16mm print of Piranha: The Ultimate Edition, a new fan edit which includes scenes only found in the TV broadcast version! In the bloody, movie biz-altering, blockbuster wake of Jaws, an ocean of cheapo sea-creature features rushed in to chomp out their share of the ferocious fishploitation market. The very best of these was Corman’s 1978 jam Piranha, directed by up-and-comer Joe Dante (The Howling, Gremlins, The ‘Burbs), and written by master scribe John Sayles, who balanced an “indie darling” filmmaking career with Corman flicks like Alligator and Battle Beyond the Stars. Starring Keenan Wynn, Kevin McCarthy, Barbara Steele and Dante stalwart Dick Miller, the plot finds weaponized piranha bred by the military set loose on a resort water park, resulting in some major teeth-chomping bloodshed. Dante’s love of 50′s sci-fi/horror and playful sense of mayhem make the film a rare delight — a knockoff that’s just as fun as the original, with fledgling SFX guru Rob Bottin’s puppet fish as a wonder to behold.
Dir. Joe Dante, 1978, 16mm, approx. 104 min.

FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Madman (brand-new restoration, producer Gary Sales and star Paul Ehlers in person!)

Co-presented by VINEGAR SYNDROME

Producer Gary Sales and star Paul Ehlers in person! “Hangs you up, breaks your neck / Swings the axe, chops your head / Bloody stump, gushing red / Body jerks, till your dead.” So waxes the theme song of Madman Marz, the titular creeper of Joe Giannone’s 1982 deep-cut slasher flick Madman. Originally designed as a film about the East Coast urban legend Cropsey, Giannone was forced to change his script after The Burning (also about the bloody carnage of Cropsey) was released. But the world was better for it, since we now have the legend of Madman Marz — now a total maniac who murdered his family and who will supposedly appear if you call out his name near his old cabin. Of course, a foolish and curious camp counselor does just that, unleashing a gory massacre. Wonky and oddly wonderful, Madman is a must-see to round out your slasher subgenre education. Front-and-center in this film is actress Gaylen Ross, whose only three onscreen roles happened to be in this, Dawn of the Dead and Creepshow.
Dir. Joe Giannone, 1981, DCP, 88 min.
