Double Bill: House of the Devil & Wolf's Hole
June 27 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$8 – $12
The American Cinematheque and Cinematic Void present this double bill of horror. From the website:
THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL (2009, Magnet Releasing, 95 min, USA). Dir: Ti West. Set in the 1980s (and paying homage to slasher and haunted-house films of the era), this suspenseful horror favorite follows college student Samantha Hughes (Jocelin Donahue), who takes a babysitting job at a remote mansion, only to become the focus of a satanic cult. With Mary Woronov, Greta Gerwig, and Dee Wallace.
WOLF’S HOLE (VLCI BOUDA). 1987, 92 min, Czechoslovakia, Dir: Věra Chytilová. In writer-director Věra Chytilová’s subversive spin on 1980s sci-fi/horror, a group of teenagers are invited to a skiing workshop at an isolated lodge, where their camp counselors seem bent on pitting them against one another. Political overtones of the Czech normalization period are certainly present, though genre fans will likely be too spellbound by the mounting psychological terror to notice. Aided by inventive camera work and a standout performance from Radka Slavíková as teen Emilka, WOLF’S HOLE is sure to get under your skin. In Czech with English subtitles.
Screening formats: 35mm (THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL), DCP (WOLF’S HOLE)
