Maniac (1980), D: William Lustig. Presented on 35mm!
One Night Only! Saturday, October 1st at 10pm.

A disturbed New Yorker played by Joe Spinell (Godfather, Taxi Driver, Forbidden Zone) stalks the streets adding to his growing collection of mannequins and women's scalps. Special makeup and effects by the master Tom Savini, score by Jay Chattaway. I warned you not to go out tonight!

Playing before Maniac (in the theater at approx 9:30pm), Already Dead is a band not trying to replicate or reincarnate a dead genre of music, in fact Already Dead excels at channeling a facet of esoteric avant-garde that truly is hard to describe using predetermined musical cues. The best way to describe it is actually through film; imagine the surreal, violent world of David Lynch mixed with early French expressionism and you might just entertain the idea of "dancing" to this.
