April brings the Beast!

Tuesday April 21st

9:00pm  $5.00

Empire Black Box
95 Empire Street,
Providence, RI

We have found a real oddball here, IMAGE OF THE BEAST (1981) is a feature length "post rapture" Christian scare film that I'm certain none of you have seen but will get a kick out of. Part of the Mark IV series this film is about the lives of those left behind after the rapture and the rise of the ant-christ. It may fall in the middle of the series but I bet we can all follow along easily. Plus we have a 16mm print of this one so that's how you get to see it!

Monday March 30th
Black Box Theater
95 Empire Street, Providence, RI

So you like crazy, weird, low budget films that no ones ever heard of? Well then Intrepidos Punks is right up your alley. Here we have a Mexican film from 1980 about a rampaging gang of punks who’s crazy styles would put anything from Road Warrior to shame. We get two over the top cops doing what they need to in order to shut down the gang and their Mexican wrestler leader El Tarzan! Come out to enjoy the film and revel in it’s ridiculousness!

WOW we have BRAIN DAMAGE uncut on 35mm!

ATTENTION: The film arrived at the Coolidge today and it has unfortunately come to our attention that the print is not uncut as we had been informed. We are still awaiting a full inspection to know completely but we wanted to let everyone know immediately.

Saturday March 14th
Coolidge Corner Theater
290 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA

Holy crap can you believe we’re showing Frank Henenlotter’s BRAIN DAMAGE! Yes that’s right, with the assistance of Northwest Nightmares and Klubb Super 8 we’ve managed to bring you an uncut 35mm print of this cult 80’s splatter classic. For those unfamiliar with BRAIN DAMAGE this 1988 film tells the tail of a young man and his parasite and is brought to you by the same filmmaker who gave us Basket Case and Frankenhooker!

So in conclusion this is an extremely rare uncut film print, this is the only U.S. screening of this film while it’s on our continent, and it is highly unlikely that this print will come back! Plus this marks a milestone of The Arkham Film Society breaking into the Boston market so we hope to see many familiar faces and make many new friends!
