Our popular annual horror fest returns, kicking off in high gear with two unusually strong-female-driven terror tales, both featuring medical students with unorthodox methods—the 2008 Spanish Sexykiller, just now making its New York debut, and the Soska Sisters’ highly anticipated American Mary. Also on offer are advance showings of the bloody good Maniac remake, Stitches (behold the zombie clown!), a creepy K-horror omnibus (Horror Stories), and two films featuring the latest in evil-kid incarnations: Citadel and Here Comes the Devil. For another deadly dose of child mischief, revisit Eden Lake, if you dare. And what would Halloween week be without Wes Craven (Deadly Blessing), Vincent Price (The Last Man on Earth), a little bit of voodoo (The Believers), and undeservedly obscure Italian gems like Giorgio Ferroni’s The Night of the Devils! Series programmed by Laura Kern and Gavin Smith.
