GREMLINS
1984, Warner Bros., 106 min, USA, Dir: Joe Dante

When Billy (Zach Galligan) breaks the cardinal rules for the keeping of his rare new pet — no water, no food after midnight and no bright light — chaos is unleashed in his idyllic small town. What was once cute and fuzzy-wuzzy transforms and multiplies into a horde of dangerous, mayhem-loving creatures. With Hoyt Axton, Phoebe Cates, Dick Miller, Corey Feldman and Glynn Turman.


LOGAN'S RUN
1976, Warner Bros., 120 min, USA, Dir: Michael Anderson

Life in the future is a dream filled with pleasurable pursuits. The only catch: Once you turn 30, you're eliminated. Michael York plays an expert at catching people who try to flee the system - a system he gradually comes to question.


THE OMEN
1976, 20th Century Fox, 111 min, USA, Dir: Richard Donner

Director Richard Donner's breakthrough film was the best of the inevitable demonic possession thrillers that flooded theaters in the wake of THE EXORCIST's success. A riveting blend of studio respectability (with a classy cast that includes Gregory Peck and Lee Remick) and exploitation gusto (in the form of some of the most creative death scenes this side of Argento), this story of a couple's discovery that their cute little boy is the Antichrist still has the power to shock. An escapist roller-coaster ride with a very dark edge, this is one of the most unabashedly entertaining films of the 1970s. Award-winning cinematography by Gilbert Taylor (STAR WARS) and an Oscar-winning score by Jerry Goldsmith. Also features David Warner and “Dr. Who's” Patrick Troughton.
