May 11th: All Things Horror Presents: EXHUMED/NAILBITER
WE'RE STOKED TO INVITE YOU TO OUR NEXT indie horror movie night. This month Chris and I are hosting two films that couldn't be more different, but embody everything we love about bringing these films to Boston genre fans.
Up first we present NAILBITER, the latest offering from Patrick Rea and SenoReality Pictures. If you're a fan of old school monster movies and get absolute chills when whatever is lurking in the darkest corner of the room skulks just of of sight, then you're going to love this film. When a mother and her three young daughters take refuge in a storm cellar as a tornado wreaks havoc outside, they soon discover they're not alone. Featuring beautiful creature designs, excellent practical FX, strong performances across the board and a fantastic score Nailbiter will put a smile across the face of anyone who ever grew up on the Saturday Afternoon Creature Double Feature.
Our second act takes a more psychological horror bent. Richard Marr Griffin's latest EXHUMED forgoes the humorous slant we've seen on films like The Disco Exorcist and Atomic Brain Invasion. Debbie Rochon and Michael Thrurber star as the parental figures overseeing the last embers of a dying cultist family. Unable to cope with the real world, the pair will stop at nothing to grow and keep their family together. Shot in beautiful black and white, Griffin crafts a work that will have your teeth setting on edge as the tension builds, offering only the briefest respite with moments punctuated by shocking violence. It's one of the best independent features we've come across in a long time and we're proud to present it.
We'll also be screening a pair of short films from Rea as well as the latest short from Fatal Pictures Familiar.
$10 gets you into both films, and we'll have a link for advanced tickets in a day or so. Here's all the need to know details:
