HEAVY MIDNITES: Surviving the Game (w/ Dir. Ernest Dickerson in person!)

The rules are simple: kill or be killed. When a group of high-powered hunters turn their guide (motherf’in ICE-T) into their prey, the ultimate manhunt is on and all bets are off. But these aren’t your normal wealthy wackjobs, these are played by a veritable who’s who of rad dudes: Rutger Hauer in a goatee and bandana, the sweet Charles S. Dutton playing against type, the always-reliable John C. McGinley, Amadeus’ Oscar-winning F. Murray Abraham and a wild-eyed Gary Busey out Gary Busey’ing himself as a psychotic psychiatrist whose backstory will leave your jaw on the floor. Seriously, you’ve never seen a crew like this on screen before. And now the video store favorite & late night cable classic Surviving the Game is gonna be a once-in-a-lifetime midnight movie explosion with the filmmaker behind it all IN PERSON to discuss! Legendary cinematographer-turned-director Ernest Dickerson, the man who lensed some of the most iconic films of the ‘80s (Krush Groove, Do the Right Thing), helmed perhaps the most entertaining horror flick of the ‘90s (Demon Knight) and is responsible for most of the best episodes of the best shows of this century (The Wire, The Walking Dead) will join us to talk about his amazing career and how he was able to wrangle one of the wildest casts in the history of action cinema!

Dir. Ernest Dickerson, 1994, 35mm, 96 min.
