Monsters Attacking at Every Rep Theatre in Town

It’s officially Halloween season, and all over town the scary movies are popping up for limited runs. The Central Cinema has Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, the one that started it all, while the Northwest Film Forum has a one night only showing of George Romero’s Day of the Dead, less illustrious than his two prior zombie movies, but no less essential. The Grand in Tacoma has Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice on Friday night (and spreads the rep love around later in the week with Do the Right Thing and Henri-Georges Cluzout’s The Mystery of Picasso). But no one in town celebrates the dark soul of cinema like the Grand Illusion, and this week their annual All Monsters Attack series starts with 35mm prints of Kathryn Bigelow’s 80s vampire classic Near Dark and Antonia Bird’s cannibal thriller Ravenous. They’ve also got The Night Eats the World, a new film from French director Dominque Rocherthat starring Golshifteh Farahani and Denis Levant along with something called Ninja Zombie that the good people at VHS Uber Alles unearthed somewhere. And this Sunday they have Scarecrow Video’s annual triple feature of obscure oddities. In coming weeks, the series will continue with the original King Kong and The Most Dangerous Game, Brian dePalma’s SistersThe Cabin in the Woods, Roger Corman’s final film, 1990’s Frankenstein Unbound and more.
