Writer/Director Robert Eggers and Actress Anya Taylor-Joy appears at the Brattle Theatre on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at 8:30 PM in person for a Q&A after the screening of THE WITCH. Free downloadable passes available at the link!
In this exquisitely-made and terrifying new horror film, the age-old concepts of witchcraft, black magic and possession are brought together to tell the riveting story of one family’s frightful unraveling. Set in New England circa 1630, THE WITCH follows a farmer who get cast out of his colonial plantation and is forced to move his family to a remote farm on the edge of an ominous forest rumored to be controlled by witches. Soon after, strange and unsettling things begin to happen—the animals turn malevolent, the crops fail, and one child disappears while another seemingly becomes possessed. As suspicion and paranoia mount, everyone begins to blame teenage daughter Thomasin. They accuse her of witchcraft, which she adamantly denies… but as circumstances become increasingly treacherous, each family member’s faith, loyalty, and love will be tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.

From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (SEXY BEAST, BIRTH) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial—or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again.
Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

Director Bobcat Goldthwait screens his new film at the Somerville Theater on Saturday April 28, 2012 at 10:15pm.
Part of IFF Boston. Get tickets ($15) here.
Frank (Joel Murray, Mad Men) is fed up, sick of how the relentlessly cruel superficiality of reality television and political talk shows has seeped into everyday life. He’s had it with his next-door neighbors, who bicker and spout ill-informed opinions at all hours of the night. He’s tired of hearing his coworkers mindlessly repeat the most trivial celebrity gossip and obsess over the latest fads. It’s enough to give a guy a headache. But when his doctor informs him that his headaches are caused by a terminal brain tumor, Frank decides he may as well take out a few of the most repugnant members of society before he dies. Then he meets Roxy, a sweet-faced, petite teenager whose disgust over the collapse of American society might actually outmatch his own.
Writer, director, and comedian Bobcat Goldthwait (WORLD’S GREATEST DAD, IFFBoston 2009) brings his trademark acerbic wit to his latest black comedy. Gleefully misanthropic, GOD BLESS AMERICA skewers our media-obsessed, self-centered, materialistic culture with an over-the-top vigilante fantasy.

Director James Gunn hosts an advance screening on Monday March 28 at 7:30pm.
Co-Presented with Independent Film Festival Boston
Free Preview Screening!
Free! First come, first seated so get here early!
(2010) dir James Gunn w/Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon, Liv Tyler [96 min]
This hilarious, amazingly twisted dark comedy features Rainn Wilson as Frank, a man shattered by his wife’s return to her drug-dealing ex. Donning a (very) homemade costume, Frank turns to a life of crime-fighting to win her back. Applying an absurd realism to masked vigilantes and their sidekicks, SUPER shows us just how messed up the idea of becoming a ‘real-life superhero’ truly is while simultaneously making us cheer for Frank’s alter ego, The Crimson Bolt, and his spunky sidekick Boltie (Page). Do not miss this!!
