Happy Friday guys! This is a pretty slow week for genre, but a great one for things you probably haven't seen. First off (the film I've been waiting for for months), UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB opens everywhere today! I was extremely excited to be able to see this film last week at an advanced screening, along with several of the Overlook creatures. You can find our review HERE. This was a strong addition to the POV cinema catalog and I absolutely recommend seeing it in theatres.
But if you're looking for something to do throughout the rest of the week, there is a variety of film festivals happening ll over the city. The SF Jewish Film Festival has movies at several theatres across the bay area, whereas the SF Frozen Film Festival is only at the Roxie. And yes, there's at least one horror block.

SF Jewish Film Festival

On a cold, wintry night, Lena shows up on the doorstep of the Rossberg family mansion. She claims her car has broken down, but her arrival is intentional. Lena is in pursuit of Anselm Rossberg, an aged Auschwitz guard who lives with his daughter, Maria. Anselm and Maria both deny Anselm's past, but Lena is determined to get him to confess, even as her own weapon is turned on her and she is forced into a moral dilemma.
