NO PLACE LIKE HOME
2006, IFM, 95 min, USA/Jamaica, Dir: Perry Henzell

Following the success of THE HARDER THEY COME, Perry Henzell directed part two of his Jamaican trilogy, which follows New York producer Susan as she ventures into the Jamaican countryside (reversing the country-to-city trajectory of the first film) in search of a runaway actress. After working on the film throughout the 1970s, Henzell discovered that the footage had been lost; fortunately, it was found 30 years later, and now Henzell's follow-up to his breakthrough classic can be seen on the big screen! With music by Bob Marley & The Wailers, Toots & The Maytals and Peter Tosh and introducing Grace Jones and P.J. Soles.


HALLOWEEN (1978)
1978, Compass International, 91 min, USA, Dir: John Carpenter

A landmark in modern horror, and one of the most phenomenally successful independent films ever made, John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN set the standard for dozens of oversexed-teens-meet-serial killer movies to come, including SCREAM and SCARY MOVIE. Jamie Lee Curtis (in her first major role) stars as the resilient Laurie, aware that evil stalks the shady streets and living rooms of her small town in the form of escaped psychopath Michael Myers. Co-starring Donald Pleasence, P.J. Soles and Nancy Loomis.
