The rains are back guys! I hope I'm not the only one who's excited about that too. It also happens to be a great cinematic week in the bay area! A Quiet Place opens everywhere today and it's definitely one I'd recommend checking out. The Roxy 14 is hosting a special private screening of this tonight at 9, with trivia and prizes beforehand.
The San Francisco International Film Festival takes over most of the city for the weekend too, and it's got a wide variety, including another film in the same vein as Unfriended! In fact, the same producer worked on both, so if you are looking for something to fill your Saturday afternoon, check out Searching at the Castro Theatre. And get the full calendar at the SF Film site.
And it's great to see the Stanford Theatre back open, especially with a Hitchcock and Other Masters of Suspense lineup in store! I'll be keeping a close eye on their calendar and keeping you guys updated!
Opens Friday 6th (1hr 30min)

The year is 1985. The unmanned Soviet space station Salyut 7, which is in low Earth orbit, suddenly stops responding to commands from the Control Center. If the space station--the pride of Soviet space engineering--falls from the sky, not only will it damage the image of the country, it will also be a disaster bringing untold casualties. To investigate the failure and prevent the catastrophe, people must be sent to the station. Yet no one in history has ever attempted to dock an uncontrolled vehicle in space. To this day, this mission is considered to be the most technically challenging in the history of space exploration.

Jen (fearlessly embodied by Matilda Lutz, Rings) is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend which is suddenly disrupted when his sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. Tension mounts in the house until the situation abruptly--and viciously--intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, Jen survives and reemerges with a relentless, wrathful intent: revenge. A white-knuckle tale of transgression and transformation, REVENGE gloriously blurs the lines of vengeance and survival while simultaneously delivering a ferocious dissection of gender and genre.

George Cukor's remake of the 1940 film Gaslight is the story of a beautiful, innocent woman (Ingrid Bergman) who marries a charming man (Charles Boyer) who tries to drive her insane. Boasting a lavish, detailed production that perfectly recreates the Victorian era, Gaslight is one of the greatest psychological thrillers ever made, thanks to Bergman's stellar, Oscar-winning performance. Gaslight was later shown in a computer-colorized print.
