John Carpenter's They Live & David Cronenberg's Videodrome

The Retrofantasma screening of THEY LIVE and VIDEODROME has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 6 in Cinema One. If you've bought advance tickets for this show and were unable to attend, your tickets will be honored at the re-screening.


John Carpenter’s THEY LIVE
(R, 1987, 93 min)

Horror master John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) directs this heart-pounding thriller. Aliens are systematically gaining control of the Earth by masquerading as humans and lulling the public into submission. Humanity’s last chance lies with a lone drifter who stumbles upon a harrowing discovery: a unique pair of sunglasses that reveals the terrifying and deadly truth. But worst of all, with these glasses you see which of us are really hideous, bug-eyed aliens.


David Cronenberg’s VIDEODROME
 (R, 89 min, 1983)

Max Renn (James Woods) is a television executive searching for an intense new program for his sex-oriented network. He ultimately discovers an underground program called "Videodrome," which appears to broadcast pornographic snuff films of actual murders. Horrified but perversely intrigued, Renn sets out to find the truth. Things become even more disturbing for Renn as his addiction grows, and the program begins to infect the outside world or perhaps merely destroy own his sanity.
