FNF: The Last Friday on the Left: A Tribute to Wes Craven feat. The Hills Have Eyes, Stranger in our House & The Last House on the Left (w/ Michael Berryman in person!)

Wes Craven left the world of horror with so many indelible, iconic images—most notably as the father of both the Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises—but he also was an indie maverick of B-movie cinema, as evidenced by his early work: scrappy, 70′s drive-in staples that comfortably shared screen space with the likes of Tobe Hooper and George Romero. Namely, The Hills Have Eyes (1977) and Last House on the Left (1972)—depraved, socially-minded, starkly funny nightmares where normal American families are tormented by desert mutants (Hills) or raping, murdering hippies (House). But it wouldn’t be enough just to show those two classics to honor the passing of a giant, so we are throwing in an ultra-rare 16mm screening of Craven’s 1978 TV movie Stranger in Our House, aka Summer of Fear, starring Linda Blair (The Exorcist) and Fran Drescher (The Nanny)! It’s a triple-feature tribute to one of the true masters of horror, so come get Craven with us!
