THE WOLF OF SNOW HOLLOW
2020, Orion Classics, 85 min, USA, Dir: Jim Cummings

Writer-director-star Jim Cummings (THUNDER ROAD) travels to a small, snowbound town in Utah for this darkly comic horror-thriller. Snow Hollow is plagued by a spate of gruesome murders that coincide with the full moon. While the coroner and townsfolk think a 7-foot wolf may be responsible, Officer John Marshall (Cummings) believes a serial killer is on the loose. Unpredictable, immature and hot-headed, Marshall also has a big chip on his shoulder - his father (the late Robert Forster in a terrific turn) is the town’s Sheriff, a formidable man who refuses to retire for fear of being replaced by his lower-ranking son. With its electric script and acting, this low budget wonder is smart, funny, scary, bloody and made with tons of heart that shine through in every scene. - Spencer Hickman


JACKIE BROWN
1997, Park Circus/Miramax, 154 min, USA, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) supplements her meager income as a stewardess by smuggling cash into the U.S. for gun runner Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) - until the day she gets busted at the airport. The cops pressure her to help them bring down Ordell, threatening prison if she refuses. With a sympathetic bail bondsman, Jackie arrives at a bold plan to play the opposing forces against each other. But matters get complicated by Ordell's confederates (Robert De Niro and Bridget Fonda), who have agendas of their own. Edited by Sally Menke.


THE STALKING MOON
1968, Warner Brothers, 109 min, Dir: Robert Mulligan

Gregory Peck reunites with his TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD director Robert Mulligan for this highly underrated Western thriller. U.S. Army soldiers encounter a group of Indians that includes a white woman and her half-Indian son; the woman (Eva Marie Saint) is desperate for cavalry scout Sam Varner (Gregory Peck) to take her and the child to Varner’s New Mexico ranch. The reason for her concern is soon clear – the boy’s father is a fearsome warrior who will stop at nothing to take him back.
