Join us for Devil Story (1985), one of the craziest most non-sensical bad movies ever made. All you need to know is that there is a deformed killer, a ghost horse, a mummy on a boat trapped in a mountain, and its French. Plus there will be boxes of vhs for sale!

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!

The A.F.S. gets rowdy with INTREPIDOS PUNKS!

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!

This year we give you VHS FOR CHRISTMAS!

Tuesday December 16th
9:00pm doors – 9:30pm Showtime
$5.00 or FREE with Brown / RISD student ID

@95 Empire Black Box
95 Empire Street,
Providence, RI

This December the Arkham Film Society would like to celebrate the holidays with you and a mess of Christmas themed shorts and specials that we're calling VHS FOR CHRISTMAS! We will screen a feature length compilation of crazy old Christmas shorts and weird as heck Christmas specials, this will probably be a great mix of nostalgia and confusion as to how some of this could have been made. Many of these are being sourced from old vhs tapes so we’re going to make our compilation on an old tape and show it that way.

Plus there are gifts! Yes every attendee will receive a free vhs tape (totally random titles that are probably bad) and we will be raffling off tons of other tapes and prize packages (actually some better stuff than the free door tapes but mostly just more stuff from our office.)

So come on out to the Black Box and celebrate the holidays with us, vhs tapes, and some borderline creepy shorts and specials.
