Halloween Week at the Grand Illusion

No theatre in town has more fun come Halloween season than the Grand Illusion. Their second week of oddball grindhouse rarities and bona fide classics continues this week with an eclectic mix of cult favorites and obscurities, playing on everything from actual 35mm film (The Hidden and a mystery triple-feature program called “Nature Gone Amok” and Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste) to VHS (Terror on the Menu) to digital (Ganja & Hess, Effects, Otto; Or, Up With Dead People). The highlight is probably the new digital restoration of Mario Bava’s Kill Baby Kill, playing Saturday and Sunday, which if nothing else should whet your appetite for the Northwest Film Forum’s Giallo series, which also kicks off this week with Bava’s Blood and Black Lace on Wednesday). The week wraps up with another must-see, Takashi Miike’s Dead or Alive, leading-in to their opening of Miike’s latest film, Blade of the Immortal, next Friday.
