THE HUNT (2020)
2020, Universal, 89 min, USA, Dir: Craig Zobel

Jason Blum (THE INVISIBLE MAN, GET OUT, HALLOWEEN), and Damon Lindelof, (WATCHMEN, LOST) deliver a timely and provocative satirical thriller that has already ignited a national conversation and sparked moral outrage. Now, it’s time to decide for yourself. Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don't know they’ve been chosen … for a very specific purpose … The Hunt. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of The Hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin, GLOW), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.


MIDSOMMAR (DIRECTOR'S CUT)
2019, A24, 171 min, Dir: Ari Aster

Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.


INTRUDER
1989, AGFA, 83 min, USA, Dir: Scott Spiegel

Clean-up on aisle three! Immediately following the runaway success of EVIL DEAD 2, lifelong pals/colleagues Sam Raimi, Scott Spiegel and Bruce Campbell embarked on this entrails-encrusted cherry-on-top of the 1980s slasher phenomenon. The night shift employees of a small town grocery are being systematically slaughtered! Is it the checker's jealous boyfriend? Or the simple-minded butcher, played by Raimi himself? Whoever it is, this inventively injurious secret chopper is slicing and dicing his way through the entire staff, using everything from beef hooks to meat slicers to power tools to fresh produce.
