    Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town that reeks of death and hopelessness sets the stage for a blossoming blood red love story.
  2. Nosferatu (NR)

    An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, NOSFERATU is the quintessential silent vampire film, crafted by legendary German director F. W. Murnau.
  3. Eraserhead (NR)

    In David Lynch’s “dream of dark and troubling things,” Henry is left alone in his apartment to care for his deformed baby and has a series of strange encounters with the beautiful girl across the hall and the woman living in his radiator.

    A true classic of suspense, this spooky, campy tale tells the story of five strangers who are offered $10,000 each by an eccentric millionaire to spend the night in a haunted house.
  5. Pet (R 18+)

    An “sweet” animal shelter worker encounters a beautiful young waitress who awakens something in him. Obsessed, he tries everything to win her over. She continuously rejects him, leading him to kidnap her. A bloody psychological battle begins where the line between victim and criminal blurs, leaving a deadly trail along the way.
  6. Haxan (NR)

    Fictionalized documentary showing the evolution of witchcraft, from its pagan roots to its confusion with hysteria in modern Europe.

  8. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (NR)

    A demented hypnotist and his ghastly henchman spread death throughout the German countryside. A masterpiece of psychological horror and the film that has come to epitomize the mysterious highly stylized German Expressionist cinema.
  9. Lyle (NR)

Despite the strange baby-obsessed landlady downstairs and the group of female models who live above them, the two are happy with their new apartment until a bizarre accident leads to the death of Lyle.

  12. Schizo (R)

    A classic 70s slasher film, one of the first big hits of the VHS horror explosion of the early 80s. An erotic thriller that used pop psychology as a springboard for shocking acts of violence.
  13. The Blob (NR)

    A cult classic of gooey greatness, The Blob follows the havoc wreaked on a small town by an outer-space monster with neither soul nor vertebrae, with Steve McQueen playing the rebel teen who tries to warn the residents about the jellylike invader.
