Screenings in the Bay (Monday to Sunday): The Clovehitch Killer, Body Melt, Laserblast

We are entering a very event heavy week you guys, so get ready!

There are two titles under the Opening This Week category, but unfortunately neither of them appear to be showing in theatres for us. Still, I must admit that I'm into both of these titles: The Clovehitch Killer and The Farm (love me some cannibals). What we do have in theatres includes Rocky IV, tonight at the Roxie Theatres, presented by Midnites for Maniacs, then Terror Tuesday gets gooey with Body Melt in 35mm, Weird Wednesday brings Yorgos Lanthimos's Dogtooth to the screen, while the Super Shangri-La Show does a Freaky Space Dudes Double Feature at the Balboa Theatre.

There is also a French Noir film festival starting up at the Roxie Theatre this Thursday, get details and the full lineup here.

Opening This Week

Limited Theatres/VOD Friday 16th (1hr 50min)
Horror (Rotten Tomatoes)
A shocking revelation turns a teenage boy's world upside down in this chilling look at the evil that can lurk below even the most wholesome surface. Tyler Burnside (Charlie Plummer) is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad (Dylan McDermott). Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives in: the unsolved murders--in which ten women were brutally tortured and killed by a psychopath known as Clovehitch--that rocked the community more than a decade ago. When Tyler discovers a cache of disturbing images in his father's possession, he begins to suspect that the man he trusts most in the world may be Clovehitch--and that his deadly rampage may not be over. With unrelenting tension, director Duncan Skiles crafts a picture-perfect vision of the all-American family--and then piece by piece rips it to shreds.
