THE RESIDENT
2010, Image Entertainment, 91 min, Dir: Antti Jokinen

Juliet (Academy Award winner Hilary Swank) gets the unnerving feeling she is not alone in her new “perfect” New York apartment. But how can she stop an evil she can't see, or even prove exists? Jeffrey Dean Morgan and screen legend Christopher Lee costar in this pulse-pounding shocker from famed horror studio Hammer Films.


THE EXORCIST
1973, Warner Brothers, 121 min, Dir: William Friedkin

Friedkin adapted William Peter Blatty’s bone-chilling best-seller into the classic American horror film in which Catholic priests Jason Miller and Max von Sydow go head-to-head with the unholy one, inhabiting the body of young Linda Blair. "I auditioned 500 girls and went with Linda because I felt she was the most intelligent, most pulled-together youngster I had ever met." - Friedkin. With Ellen Burstyn.


The Fearless Vampire Killers
1967, Warner Brothers, 108 min, Dir: Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski’s expertly balanced blend of humor and horror looks even better today than when it was released nearly 40 years ago. Phenomenal character actor Jack McGowran is perfectly cast as the ancient, screw-loose Professor Abronsius who, with his harebrained sidekick, Alfred (Polanski, doing double duty) is on the hunt for vampires in the snowy Carpathian mountains. Their pursuit shifts into high gear once Alfred’s admired-from-afar love interest, the inn-keeper’s daughter (Sharon Tate), is kidnapped by the undead Count von Krolock (Ferdy Mayne). With the beautiful, deeply rich color cinematography of Douglas Slocombe and a memorable score by brilliant Krzysztof Komeda.
