A dimension-shattering blend of heroin, sex, and Super-8, international cult film sensation Arrebato makes its long-awaited US debut, 40 years late but feeling as fresh as ever! Horror movie director José is adrift in a sea of doubt and drugs. As his belated second feature nears completion, his reclusive bubble is popped by two events: a sudden reappearance from an ex-girlfriend and a package from past acquaintance Pedro: a reel of Super-8 film, an audiotape, and a door key. From there, the boundaries of time, space, and sexuality are erased as José is once more sucked into Pedro’s vampiric orbit. Together, they attempt the ultimate hallucinogenic catharsis through a moebius strip of filming and being filmed. (Altered Innocence)

Videodrome

In writer/director David Cronenberg’s visionary brain-scorcher, reality is television and television is reality. Prophetic cathode ray tube spirituality perfectly melds with the filmmaker’s trademark obsessions, turning a low budget head trip into one of the decade’s most audaciously original sci-fi tales. Packed with provocative ideas and hyper-stimulated video hallucinations, spectacular Rick Baker effects and a hypnotic Howard Shore score, plus a cast (James Woods, Blondie’s Debbie Harry) willing to push the limits, Videodrome is a cult classic that’s impossible to forget.
