CHILD'S PLAY
1988, MGM Repertory, 87 min, Dir: Tom Holland

“Andy Barclay has a new playmate who’s in no mood to play." Young Andy Barclay is thrilled to get the hottest new toy - until he learns his doll is possessed by the spirit of a psychotic criminal! Can Andy convince the adults in his life that "Chucky" (voiced by an exceptionally creepy Brad Dourif) is out to get him before it's too late? Chris Sarandon and Catherine Hicks star in this horror classic which spawned an entire Chucky franchise, and which does double duty as a shrewd satire on consumerism and its effect on children.


EYES OF LAURA MARS
1978, Sony Repertory, 104 min, USA, Dir: Irvin Kershner

Fashion photographer Laura Mars (Faye Dunaway) can see through the eyes of a wanted serial killer as he commits crimes. When she proves her unbelievable ability to Detective John Neville (Tommy Lee Jones), the two join forces to find the murderer - before the murderer finds Laura. A fascinating thriller from director Irvin Kershner. Theoni V. Aldredge’s late 1970s glamour costumes have become legendary, and designer Marios Schwab cited the film as an influence for his fall 2010 collection for Halston.


GODZILLA, MOTHRA & KING GHIDORAH: GIANT MONSTERS ALL-OUT ATTACK
2001, Sony Repertory, 105 min, Dir: Shusuke Kaneko

Already acclaimed by fans as the most exciting Godzilla film since the genre’s 1960s heyday, "GMK" features a terrific, redesigned Big G (he’s leaner, meaner and packs a nasty bite), bent on destroying Japan as vengeance for the restless souls of WWII victims. Standing in his way are the "Guardian Deities" - Mothra, King Ghidorah and Baragon. In Japanese with English subtitles.
