To celebrate the release of his new book, «True Indie: Life and Death in Filmmaking,» Don Coscarelli is joining us for a special screening of PHANTASM followed by a live Q&A!

Please note that your ticket to this screening requires the purchase of this new book, which Mr. Coscarelli will sign after the Q&A.

Very few horror movies are strong enough to be considered «great art.” THE SHINING and the original DAWN OF THE DEAD are on this very short list, but the ingenuity and unique mythology of PHANTASM earn its inclusion. The plot of this cerebral nightmare epic sounds like something that you’d find scribbled on H.P. Lovecraft's school notebook: A teenager discovers that an indestructible grandpa is harvesting the deceased. Luckily, the local weed-loving ice cream man is willing to join in the battle against the paranormal retiree. Shotguns and shapeshifting take center stage as unholy darkness threatens to swallow the town alive, complete with flying metal murderballs. Writer-director Don Coscarelli creates an absorbing otherworld ruled by the „Tall Man,“ one of cinema's all-time greatest villains, and the unparalleled score will haunt you for decades. This is truly one of the most effective reality-liquefiers in horror history.
