Grab your black gloves and reach for a straight razor as horror maestro Dario Argento returns with DARK GLASSES, an innovative and brutal giallo that pairs a visually-impaired woman with a young boy in pursuit of a serial killer.

Fresh from its world premiere at Sundance, filmmaker Hanna Bergholm‘s HATCHING is a satirical and transformative body horror come creature feature that sees a girl on the cusp of adolescences nurse an abandoned egg to a nightmarish juvenility.


Writer/director Kate Dolan makes her feature-film debut with YOU ARE NOT MY MOTHER, an unnerving and dread-fuelled tale of a teenager attempting to uncover the puzzling disappearance of her mother and her far more mysterious and sinister return.

Y.K. Kim & Woo-sang Park‘s MIAMI CONNECTION is a martial arts and music extravaganza that despite poor box office and harsh critical reception upon release has gone on to become a beloved cult classic and there’s no better time to discover (or rediscover) it for yourself than at our 35th Anniversary Screening, held in conjunction with Umbrella Entertainment.
