The House That Screamed

A Spanish spiritual precursor to Suspiria, The House That Screamed is a chilling nightmare from Narciso Ibáñez Serrador, writer / director of the cult classic Who Can Kill a Child? At a secluded girls boarding school run by a sadistic headmistress, the sexy students start disappearing one by one as a sinister killer stalks the halls. Only the killer knows why and how and who is next!

Pieces

You don’t have to go to Texas for a Chainsaw massacre! The pinnacle of enthusiastically bloodthirsty, deliriously entraining slasher masterpieces, Juan Piquer Simón’s Pieces continues to pack a punch 35 years after it splattered grindhouse screens. A college campus is terrorized by a deranged madman hacking up co-eds in a quest to assemble the pieces of a human jigsaw puzzle. Starring husband & wife team Christopher & Lynda Day George, the instantly recognizable Paul L. Smith (Bluto in Robert Altman’s Popeye) and legendary Italian character actor Edmund Purdom!
