Join us for an afternoon celebrating the unofficial trilogy encompassing three of director John Carpenter's films — 1982's THE THING, 1987's PRINCE OF DARKNESS and 1994's IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS. All presented in 35mm.

While these films may not seem to have much in common other than their shared director, each film explores the idea of «cosmic horror» the threat of the unknown. From shape-changing aliens in THE THING — a device used to really explore the idea of identity and trust — to PRINCE OF DARKNESS' beautiful blend of science-fiction and spirituality as the origins of the biblical devil are explored to the downright Lovecraftian overtones of IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS, a film starring Sam Neill as an author whose horrors may only lie in his head.

THE THING — Kurt Russell leads the cast in this bleak thriller about a crew of Antarctic explores besieged by a shape-changing alien who first infiltrates and then kills.

PRINCE OF DARKNESS — When scientists uncover a mysterious green goo that may or may not be Satan himself, they learn the true extent of its power and its deadly design for world conquest.

IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS — Sam Neill stars as an insurance investigator who, when searching for a missing author, stumbles upon a town that should not exist and unknowable monster-gods that cannot escape their prison.
