Opening Night followed by a Q&A with directors Roxanne Benjamin & David Bruckner and actors Hannah Marks & Zoe Cooper
This knock-down drag-out road movie puts the pedal to the metal as it speeds down a lost highway to hell with five separate but neatly connected stories of terror and menace that will take you on a wild ride you won’t soon forget. The action ties together the grim and bloody tales of two men on the run from a nameless menace, an all-girl rock group who break down in the desert and get a lift from some too-good-to-be-true Samaritans, a businessman trying to save the life of the woman he’s run down, a gun-toting roughneck who bursts into a bar in search of his long-lost sister, and a family whose vacation becomes a terrifying ordeal. Another mind-bending work from many of the makers of V/H/S and featuring the voice of Larry Fessenden as the radio DJ, Southbound is the rare anthology movie with no weak links.
Stick around after the film for a Halloween—or, rather, Mischief Night!—celebration open to all ticket holders. Dress like your favorite movie villain… or whatever else your cold, dead heart desires! Treats and drinks will be served, and best-costume prizes will be awarded.
