Nick After Hours
Cinema has the power to create strange new worlds. So when we say we’re interested in showing “weird movies” in our new After Hours series, we mean something potentially earth-shattering. After Hours takes the broad categories of “cult film” and “genre film” and aims to create a transformative theatrical experience, casting the familiar in the glow of the uncanny. This is cinema as spectacle, cinema as politics, and cinema as magic; a kind of magic only possible with the unexamined brought to light.
Thank you to our programming committee:
Dr. Julia Elliot
Ginger and Brigitte, two sisters trapped in suburbia, are obsessed with mayhem, torture, and death—until they get a taste of the real thing. On the night of Ginger's first period, she is savagely attacked by a wild creature. Her wounds miraculously heal, but something is not quite right. As Ginger begins to change, Brigitte must figure out how to save her sister and herself.
