Screenings in the Bay (Monday 3rd to Sunday 9th): Pig, The Fear Footage, Dial Code Santa Clause, Reborn

Ready or not, Christmas is just around the corner. And while I'm not too crazy about that fact, I am very excited to check out the Christmas horror lineup at the Alamo Drafthouse! It starts this week, with Dial Code Santa Clause on Terror Tuesday! I've seen several of the other titles billed for the rest of the month, but this one will be entirely new to me. 

December also means the classic Christmas movies will be popping up, and that of course means that Gizmo's adorable face will be appearing at several theatres throughout the month. 

The 4 Star Theatre presents a new Taiwanese horror film starting this Friday, and the Roxie gets an Iranian slasher on Sunday.

And that's all before we talk about Another Hole in the Head! Every day this week has something interesting screening at the New People Cinema, except for Wednesday, when the festival screens Lifechanger at the Landmark Embarcadero Theatre. Then on Saturday, Barbara Crampton will be attending the Reborn screening at 7pm, followed by The Fear Footage with an intro by the Overlook maniacs! Check out our review HERE and come by the New People at 9pm to see what we're talking about.
