This August, the American Cinematheque will roll out their month long 5th Festival of Fantasy, Horror & Science Fiction. This year’s series kicks off with a 20th Anniversary Screening of one of the most transgressive cult movies of the 1980s, director Alex Cox’s “REPO MAN”, followed by an in-person mini-tribute to acclaimed 1970’s scream queen and cult icon, British actress Caroline Munro, with rare screenings of such films as “CAPTAIN KRONOS”, “VAMPIRE HUNTER” and “STARCRASH”.
This year’s Fest features L.A. premieres of brand-new films from around the globe including director Tobe Hooper’s “THE TOOLBOX MURDERS”; Korean sci-fi animated film “SKY BLUE”; the Spierig Brothers’ zombie pic “UNDEAD”; Dario Argento’s new giallo “THE CARD PLAYER”; French filmmaker Eric Vallette’s macabre occult prison opus “MALEFIQUE”; gonzo, politically incorrect anime “DEAD LEAVES”; a program of exciting new shorts, including the acclaimed “Man Without a Head”, with several filmmakers in person, acclaimed Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s latest, “DOPPELGANGER”; and the Cinematheque’s own Chris D.’s junkie/ghost/vampire drama “I PASS FOR HUMAN”.
