Vampire’s Kiss

directed by Robert Bierman in English starring Nicolas Cage, Maria Conchita Alonso, Jennifer Beals (1988)

The genesis of Crazy-eyed Nicolas Cage (later perfected in Kiss of Death), this unhinged portrait of a bored literary agent transforming into a vampire is one of Cage’s most enjoyable performances to watch. Sexy vampire Jennifer Beals feeds upon our schlubby protagonist on a nightly basis, leading Cage to believe he too will become a vampire. When his fangs don’t develop, in go the plastic “vampire” teeth, after which events in his life really take a turn for the weird.

Let the Right One In

directed by Tomas Alfredsson in Swedish (2008)

A well-crafted horror film in the tradition of Guillermo del Toro’s THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE, Swedish import LET THE RIGHT ONE IN ably blends genre chills with genuine feeling. There are plenty of scares, but it remains moving and intelligent, a rare feat for the genre.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show [35mm]

directed by Jim Sharman starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray, Meatloaf, Barry Bostwick (1975)

This notorious horror parody — a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock ‘n’ roll, among other things — tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry).

The film, co-starring Meat Loaf and Richard O’Brien, bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings.

The Running Man

directed by Paul Michael Glaser in English starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Conchita Alonso, Yaphet Kotto (1987)

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this 80s actioner as a wrongly convicted man must try to survive a public execution gauntlet staged as a public entertainment. Based on the novel by Stephen King, this strangely prescient blockbuster co-stars Richard Dawson as the sadistic game show host, in a delicious piece of meta-casting!

Pee-wee’s Big Adventure [35mm]

directed by Tim Burton in English starring Paul Reubens, Elizabeth Daily, Mark Holton (1985)

But when he fails to make even a rudimentary attempt at bicycle theft prevention, Pee-Wee goes on a journey of discovery to find his bike and learn a lesson: that there is no basement in the Alamo! Tim Burton’s first feature, the film often veers wildly into Burton’s signature stylings, most notably during a nightmarish trip to the ER.
