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: Vampire's Kiss (Blu-Ray release party!)

1/30 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

Co-presented by SCREAM FACTORY.

Producer Barry Shils in person! Join us for a special 35mm screening of one of our fave horror comedies — and don’t forget to pick up the new Scream Factory Blu-Ray release of Vampire’s Kiss, coming out February 10th.

Before American Psycho took on the Eighties yuppie mantle as a horror metaphor, the vastly underseen and fantastically funny Vampire’s Kiss covered nearly identical territory with equally “biting” results. Coming from an era already ripe with cult classics, this unpredictable ride — from an eminently quotable and laugh-out-loud hilarious script by After Hours scribe Joseph Minion — deftly skewers upwardly-mobile NYC culture like no other, and was one of the first (and very best) films to utilize Nicolas Cage going full-tilt gonzo. The results, including Cage bravely demonstrating a bit of real-life cockroach eating, are unforgettable — but Vampire’s Kiss is more than just an exercise in gleeful insanity, as there are true moments of shock horror, a nerve-wracked performance by an endlessly tormented Maria Conchita Alonso, and a turn from Jennifer Beals at her vamped-out sexiest.
Dir. Robert Bierman, 1988, 35mm, 103 min..

FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Cemetery Man (archival 35mm print!)

$12/free for members

Co-presented by SHOCK TILL YOU DROP

Even in the weird and colorful landscape of Italian horror, Michele Soavi’s Dellamorte Dellamore — or, Cemetery Man, as it was known upon its stateside release in ‘94 — stands on a weird little island all its own. Following the day-to-day routine of Rupert Everett (The Importance of Being Earnest, My Best Friend’s Wedding) as a cemetery groundskeeper whose job entails re-killing the dead that rise nightly from their graves, this shockingly gory film also veers into both surreal romanticism and screwball comedy, while never being jarring or tone-deaf. Soavi, a protégé of Argento, really knows how to fill these frames with atmosphere, while Everett’s performance invokes a more wistful and lovelorn version of Ash from the Evil Dead films. A must-see on the big screen for horror fans, zombie fans, and those into the strange and wonderful.
Dir. Michele Soavi, 1994, 35mm, 105 min. (Archival 35mm print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive)
