Some horror selections at the Cinefamily

Last year, as part of their fifth anniversary/first Nightmare City film fest, LA's venerable Cinefamily screened a midnight movie every night throughout the month of October to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Video Nasties scare in Britain. I was one among the 23 souls who braved sleep deprivation and occasional boredom to run the gauntlet. At the end, all the winners got to choose a midnight movie to screen at the theater.

And finally my time has come! At Midnight on July 17th, I'm presenting X: The Man With The X-Ray Eyes, Roger Corman's most successful stab at Lovecraftian horror.





Also, on Aug. 23rd at Midnight, Cinefamily's horror residency Friday Night Frights will be screening Magic, the 1978 chiller starring Anthony Hopkins and malevolent dummy Anthony Hopkins.

Re: Some horror selections at the Cinefamily

Since there isn't a TV forum I thought I should mention here that Adult Swim's The Heart, She Holler is probably the closest thing to a weird fiction sitcom that television has produced. It's a fake soap opera that takes place in a surreal southern gothic nightmare land, where a feral simpleton who's been walled up in a cave for 40 years is made the mayor of a grimy industrial town. The second season starts in September and Cinefamily with not only hold a free preview screening but also made a season 2 trailer:
