2013, 81 min, Canada, Dir: Renaud Gauthier, Marie-Claire Lalonde

This retro homage to Italian giallo movies and '70s and '80s slasher flicks follows Duane Lewis, a New York fry cook driven mad by disco music. After he flips out and kills a woman in a club, Duane flees to Montreal - but he discovers that there's no getting away from the music that drives him insane, and before long he's on a grisly killing spree.

Live Score by Umberto!

1982, Grindhouse Releasing, 89 min, Spain/USA, Dir: Juan Piquer Simón

In this infamous grindhouse thriller, a young boy with twisted ideas about sexuality grows into a serial killer on a rampage, collecting body parts to assemble his jigsaw puzzle of the ideal woman. Christopher George (TV’s “Rat Patrol”) is the hardboiled cop on his trail in a bizarre college town. Filmmaker Simón keeps the absurd number of red herrings coming at breakneck speed.

1980, AVCO Embassy, 89 min, USA, Dir: Paul Lynch

A group of kids complicit in a horrible accident find themselves being picked off one by one years later on the night of their prom; among them is scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, fresh off of HALLOWEEN and THE FOG. Leslie Nielsen appears as Jamie's dad in this quintessential ’70s slasher, one of the most enduring horror films to come out of the Canadian tax shelter era - and certainly the one with the grooviest disco soundtrack!

Screening formats: DCP (DISCOPATH) and 35mm (PIECES, PROM NIGHT)
