Halloween is truly hallowed at Cinefamily — we opened five years ago this week, and we like to mark every Cinebirthday with an unforgettable, all-night audio-visual blowout. This year’s bash brings a tribute to the cool, creepy and alien analog sounds of New Wave horror — it’s a slash-happy soiree of murder you can dance to. For one dark, dizzy night, the theater transforms into a haunted, pulsing nightclub where gothy Berlin vamps, knife-wielding New Wavers and Italo-Disco freaks can come together to cut a rug — and each other! Supplying the LIVE sensuous sounds of slaughter, we’ve got the legendary Claudio Simonetti of Italian soundtrack overlords Goblin performing a solo set, neon noir visionary Tearist rescoring a remixed version of the ‘80s German new wave rocker-stalker Cinefamily favorite Der Fan, and Dadaist documentarian of the digital underbelly James Ferraro taking an aural hatchet to VHS treasure Boardinghouse. But that’s just the tip of the steak knife! We’re also spooking-out the theater like never before, with optical illusions and holographic nightmare visions, DJs, Snap Yourself!’s haunted photo booth, psycho karaoke, food trucks, booze and some extra-secret surprises. It’s time to ritually sacrifice yourself to the analog gods!
