Attn NYC Fans! Catch two 12:30am showings of HOUSE OF THE DEVIL from director Ti West tonight 10/30 and tomorrow night 10/31.
“West playfully subverts the horror film genre by insidiously setting up the mood and letting it eerily and slowly play out before slamming home with a fiendish finale.”
For tickets and more info, head over to IFC Center.
GEP pal Jim Mickle will show a sneak preview of his new film, COLD IN JULY, in NYC at IFC Center tonight, 8pm. He and Don Johnson will be on hand for a Q&A, moderated by Fessenden. Tickets here.
How can a split-second decision change your life? While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane puts a bullet in the brain of a low-life burglar, Freddy Russell. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Dane soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when Freddy’s ex-con father, Ben, rolls into town; hell-bent on revenge. However, not all is as it seems. Shortly after Dane kills the home intruder, his life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and violence. Twists and turns continue to pile up as the film reaches its inevitable destination: a gore-soaked dead end.
Michael C. Hall brings a shell-shocked vulnerability to his portrayal of Dane that contrasts perfectly with the grizzled “badasses” portrayed by Sam Shepard and Don Johnson. Directed with an excellent eye for the visual poetry of noir, this pulpy, southern-fried mystery is a throwback to an older breed of action films; one where every punch and shotgun blast opens up both physical and spiritual wounds. Cold in July is hard to shake as an east Texas summer.
From Steve Dollar at The Wall Street Journal:
Punk Rock Girls at BAM, ‘American Jesus’ and More in This Week’s Repertory Film
“In his quest to explore obsessive religious practice in the American heartland, Spanish filmmaker Aram Garriga discovers what Werner Herzog meant when he described the U.S. as being the most exotic place he ever visited. While drawn consistently to interview some of the most extreme subjects he can find on the fringes of Christianity—Pentecostal snake-handlers are only the beginning—Mr. Garriga is more comfortable with clear-eyed observance than a rush to judgment. Even evangelical surfers find a place in his documentary, which frames unconventional displays of faith against larger questions of national identity.”
