Thursday, November 4

Head down to the New Beverly Cinema this Thursday, November 4th, for a very special double-feature of vigilante and revenge films. For this special event we'll be starting off with our all-time favorite film in the genre, Bill Lustig's incredible VIGILANTE! Robert Forster stars as Eddie Marino, a hardworking family man whose life is shattered after an encounter with a vicious NY street gang. Abandoned by a system that doesn't care, he teams up with co-workers Fred Williamson, Richard Bright and Joeseph Carberry to rid the streets of the scum! A powerful film that always drives audiences wild, VIGILANTE also stars fan favorites Joe Spinell, Woody Strode, Carol Lynley and Steve James. As an added bonus, director Bill Lustig will be joined by stars Robert Forster, Fred Williamson and Frank Pesce for a post-film Q&A.

"You're not safe anymore... There's only one way to stop them..."

Following this we'll be showing the rarely screened TRACKDOWN starring Jim Mitchum, Karen Lamm, Anne Archer, Erik Estrada, Cathy Lee Crosby and John Kerry. When his younger sister leaves their Montana ranch to seek fame in Hollywood, Mitchum follows to keep an eye on her. He's too late, though, as soon after she arrives on the mean streets she is robbed, assaulted, kidnapped, and sold off to a pimp. Now it's up to Mitchum with help from social worker Crosby and Estrada to track her down and punish those responsible! As an extra bonus, co-star John Kerry (also seen as a cop in DOLEMITE and BLACK DYNAMITE) will be joining us and answering questions about working on the film.

Friday & Saturday, October 29 & 30

Trick 'r Treat writer / director Michael Dougherty will appear IN PERSON, schedule permitting, Friday to discuss the film & host a costume contest!

Halloween III writer / director Tommy Lee Wallace will appear IN PERSON, schedule permitting, for a Q&A following the Saturday 9:20 show.

Director Michael Dougherty brings his time-shifting horror anthology Trick 'r Treat (2009) back to the New Beverly for two nights on October 29 and 30. The movie is a clever confluence of tales all spinning and interweaving on a fateful Halloween night in a glowing-orange neighborhood where the unexpected is always right around the corner, or just beneath a deceptively simple scary costume. The gasps come mixed with laughs courtesy of fine actors like Dylan Baker, Brian Cox, Anna Paquin and Leslie Bibb, and the crackling pleasure with which Dougherty unfolds his horrific yarns makes for a movie that is a shivery hoot to get lost in. Dougherty will answer questions and host a costume contest during Friday night's screening.

This Week At The New Beverly: British Noir, Hammer Horror, Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard, the Grindhouse Film Fest & More!

Thursday, October 21

Co-presented by Sergio Leone & the Infield Fly Rule

Seed Of Chucky writer / director Don Mancini, stars Jennifer Tilly & Brad Dourif, Chucky master puppeteer Tony Gardner, and producers David Kirschner & Corey Sienega will appear IN PERSON, schedules permitting, for a Q&A on Thursday!

Strange things keep happening to the members of the family who have adopted little Esther, and she has some strange ways of going about making her new life just the way she wants it. Dismissed as sadistic trash by the majority of critics, Orphan (2009) is actually one of the best pure horror films of the past 10 years. Directed with maximum efficiency and finesse by Jaume Collett-Serra, the movie stakes its claim to a long tradition of stories about fearsome, murderous movie children. As Esther, Isabelle Fuhrmann is indeed the true and rightful heir to nasty little Patty McCormack's Rhoda Penmark. If Ms. McCormack was The Bad Seed, there is, as the movie progresses, increasingly little doubt that Esther is the worst. Screenwriter David Johnson will participate in a Q&A after the screening on Wednesday, Oct. 20. Co-presented by Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule.
