Pig (1998) – When this film was made it became the inspiration of a new genre: torture film. Involves graphic violence with no use of special effects. 1334 (2011) – 13 years later a follow up was made, an underground ghost story which is based on true occurrences. 1334 is an apocalyptic vision of what is there after death.
Along a desolate road in the Haitian mountains, a carriage bearing Neil Parker and Madeleine Short encounters a funeral in which the body is being buried in the road. Further down the road, the coach stops at the sight of a man of satanic appearance: six human shapes step forth, and the horrified driver shouts ”Zombies!”, signaling the first appearance of the living dead in American cinema. When first released, WHITE ZOMBIE occupies a deserved place beside DRACULA and FRANKENSTEIN as one of the most eerie and interesting horror films of the 1930’s and remains a horror classic. Remastered in HD for the first time from Kino Classics!
Flight of the Navigator
Disney’s 1986 Flight of the Navigator combines a strong ensemble cast and classic ’80s soundtrack with dazzling special effects for a high-flying sci-fi adventure. While searching for his little brother in the woods, 12-year-old David Freeman (Joey Cramer) falls down a ravine and is knocked unconscious. After what seems like minutes, he returns home, only to discover that eight years have passed since he was declared missing and presumed dead. Even more mystifying is that David hasn’t aged, nor can he account for the time lapse. Meanwhile, NASA officials stumble upon a futuristic spacecraft and are determined to assess what David knows about it by locking him in a top-secret lab for scanning and testing. His only chance of escape is in the spacecraft manned by Max, a wisecracking robot. Cramer gives an earnest performance, which overcomes an imperfect script, while enough one-liners and imaginative animation will keep families engaged. Watch for Sarah Jessica Parker in one of her first film appearances. Rated PG for language.
Dark Tower: The Gunslinger: The Little Sisters of Eluria (Dark Tower Graphic Novel)
Join Roland Deschain as he explores Mid-World’s darkest corners. Near death from an attack by slow mutants, Roland is taken in by a group of nuns who specialize in anything but the healing arts. These hideous, corpse-like creatures – the Little Sisters of Eluria – have murder on their twisted minds. And in his current condition, there’s almost nothing the last Gunslinger can do to prevent their tender mercies from taking hold. Dark Tower: The Gunslinger continues with one of the series’ most shocking, blood-curdling stories yet – a retelling of author Stephen King’s original novella The Little Sisters of Eluria, later compiled in the anthology Everything’s Eventual.
THE STUFF OF LEGEND: BOOK 1
The year is 1944. As Allied forces fight the enemy on Europe’s war-torn beaches, another battle begins in a child’s bedroom in Brooklyn. When the nightmarish Boogeyman snatches a boy and takes him to the realm of the Dark, the child’s playthings, led by the toy soldier known as the Colonel, band together to stage a daring rescue. On their perilous mission they will confront the boy’s bitter and forgotten toys, as well as betrayal in their own ranks. Can they save the boy from the forces of evil, or will they all perish in the process? The Stuff of Legend is a haunting and ultimately redemptive tale of loyalty, camaraderie, and perseverance. This edition includes a brand-new story featuring the Colonel’s war journal, maps, sketches, and other original material!
Cadaver: A Bittersweet Love Story
The #1 US animated film is now a picture book for adults. Cadaver is based on the award-winning short film starring Back to the Future’s Christopher Lloyd, ROOKIE Magazine’s editor-in-chief Tavi Gevinson, and Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates.
Synopsis: A cadaver wakes up to say a last goodbye to his wife, but discovers a truth in death he didn’t know in life.
CADAVER isn’t just any old love story. It is a cinematic poem. Literally, it rhymes. Inspired by the wit of Shel Silverstein and the wisdom of William Shakespeare, it is a twenty-first century love sonnet that seeks to awaken the hopeful romantic within even the harshest cynic. Additionally, Cadaver features three bonus items: a haunting rendition of Neil Young’s 1972 Billboard #1 hit, “Heart of Gold,” performed by Tavi Gevinson, and an acoustic rendition of The Pet Shop Boys’ 1988 UK Billboard #1 hit “Heart” — and a digital viewing copy of the Academy Award-longlisted film, Cadaver.
