Movie Night presents “Ransom Movies of the 1960s and 70s” DOUBLE FEATURE!!

Typically, Movie Night celebrates the best of the worst, and, sometimes, the worst of the best. But on occasion we’ll actually show something good, too. “Ransom Movies of the 1960s and 70s” is one of those times. Join us on March 23rd for a double feature featuring two of the finest ransom films ever made:

“Le Voyou,” 1970, France
“High and Low,” 1963, Japan

As always, there will be viewing guides, trivia games, raffles and popcorn on hand. Bring your friends! Absolutely zero rubber-suited monsters in this month’s edition.

Chicago Movie Night #2: Cannibal Campout

In its 6 plus years, Movie Night has yet to screen a cannibal film.  Sure, we’ve had movies where folks get eaten by sand (“Blood Beach”), by liquor (“Street Trash”), by C.H.U.D.s (“C.H.U.D.”).  We even watched something called “Death Bed: The Bed That Eats.”  But people-eating-people is a line we’ve yet to cross.
Until now.  Be prepared to be seriously grossed out by the only cannibal film ever to come out of New Jersey (certainly the only one from 1988):

UPDATE: this was filmed in Connecticut and New York, not New Jersey. Sorry about that!

Chicago Movie Night #1: NIGHTBEAST

The Nightbeast likes hugging

WHEN: November 11, 2011 (11/11/11!), 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

WHERE: The (New) Corpse Space, 1511 N. Milwaukee Ave. 2nd Floor

NIGHTBEAST (1982). Directed by Don Dohler, shot in suburban Maryland on a budget of what looks like change found under couch cushions after not much searching, this thing is a gem. J.J. Abrams does the synth score. There is a long, gross sex scene in the middle. So much more. Get ready!!
