Regional Horror at the University of Chicago!
Not sure how we missed this, but Doc Films, the student film society at the University of Chicago is running a series on American Regional Horror: Gore! Monsters! North Carolina? at the Max Palevsky Cinema at Ida Noyes Hall (1212 East 59th Street, Chiciago, Ill). Tickets are just $5.
If you live near Chicago, you've already missed hometown fave The Wizard of Gore (Sept. 30) and Don't Look in the Basement (Oct. 7), but you have the unique opportunity of seeing a rare 35mm print of Sometimes Aunt Martha Does Dreadful Things (1971) this Thursday, Oct. 14, at 9:30.
Other upcoming titles include Joy Houck's Night of the Strangler (Oct. 21), the Texas film Enter the Devil (Oct. 28), J.G. Patterson's The Body Shop (Nov. 4), Bill Rebane's Blood Harvest (Nov. 11, with Tiny Tim!), the California film The Child (Nov. 18), and another great Louisiana rarity, Screams of a Winter Night (Dec. 2).
