NYC! Win a pair of tickets to French terror “INSIDE” at Nitehawk this weekend
A contemporary classic of total terror, Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s INSIDE was as ferocious a debut as you could ask for. Frightening and stunningly blood soaked all at once, it was a natural festival favorite and has become a staple for most horror fans when asked about damned good, recent genre. Oddly though, five years on from its stateside DVD debut, it hasn’t been the midnight rep go-to (or the Christmas Eve must-watch) one would expect. Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema (136 Metropolitan Ave in Williamsburg) plans to do something about that this weekend and is opening the door for La Femme in their first installment of Nitehawk Nasties.
Launching as a monthly midnight series, Nitehawk Nasties plans to go “all in for the sickest, weirdest, and violent films from the glorious black-and-white gore beginnings of yesterday on up to the torture porn of today.” Programmer Caryn Coleman, who previously contributed to Fango when we teamed with Nitehawk for their VHS Vault, is leading the charge and plans to follow up INSIDE with 35mm screenings of Umberto Lenzi’s CANNIBAL FEROX in May and Doug Buck’s uncompromising, provoking FAMILY PORTRAITS trilogy of shorts, “Cutting Moments,” “Home,” and “Prologue” in June.
Fango will be giving away a pair of tickets to each, and we’re starting with French splattershow INSIDE, playing this Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6 at 12:20 am. To win, e-mail Sam@Fangoria.com with the subject “INSIDE is Nasty,” the night you’d like to attend and tell me your favorite French horror movie… in French.
See you at Nitehawk!
