9:30pm – Tenebrae

Fans from Toledo to Timbuktu know in their bones that horror films from Italy are some of the flat-out greatest in the world — and one of the truest alchemic keys to their ascendency is the iconic intonation of their soundtracks. One of the founding members and original keyboardist of Goblin, composer Claudio Simonetti has had a hand in creating of some of Italian horror’s most famous film scores ever — we’re talking not only the Argento classics Suspiria, Deep Red, Opera and Tenebrae, but also the European cut of Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, Fulci’s caveman fantasy Conquest, the terrifying movie theater haunt Demons, and a huge list more. A pioneer who has effortlessly blended progressive rock, electro-pop and heavy metal across a body of work entering its fifth decade, Simonetti has done it all, collaborated with the best of them, and has a lifetime’s worth of incredibly cool stories to share. Flying in all the way from Italy just to be with us, Claudio joins the Cinefamily programming team for one of the most in-depth Q&As of his entire career. Come be one of the lucky folks to dine with Claudio for our pre-show potluck dinner, to witness this historic evening’s interview — and to delight in a screening of Argento’s Tenebrae, originating from one of the world’s few remaining fully-uncut 35mm prints!
Tenebrae Dir. Dario Argento, 1982, 35mm, 101 min.
