Family Presents Nightmare USA Double Feature

One of the best film books of recent memory is Stephen Thrower's Nightmare USA: The Untold Story of the Exploitation Independents. It focuses on an alternate timeline of of independent exploitation cinema with a bent toward the artistic, the weird, the idiosyncratic. A goldmine of under appreciated, little seen movies. So when we heard that as part of the Cinefamily's month long Halloween Horror festival, Stephen Thrower was guest programming an evening of films, we were very excited to help get the word out.
The evening starts with an incredibly rare 35mm screening of Victims (this is its U.S. premiere after 30 years!), a criminally-neglected gem of psychological horror bolstered by superb naturalistic performances -- a film which never even had an American theatrical release! Paulie (played by writer/director Daniel DiSomma, aka Tony Vorno) is falling to pieces. His every encounter with the opposite sex ends in violence, while stirring up memories of his prostitute mother and her brutal pimp.
Followed by Don't Go In The House, a gritty, disturbing and blackly comic portrait of a pyromaniac struggling to cope with his abusive mother's death. Don't Go In The House is best described as Psycho Redux -- with flamethrowers! Not for the fainthearted!
This Sunday, October 18th, 8PM.
Victims Dir. Daniel DiSomma, 1977, 35mm.
Don't Go in the House Dir. Joseph Ellison, 1980, 35mm.
