Two-Week Retrospective! (Oct 22 - Nov 4)

On the movie screen, Larry Fessenden has punched out Bill Murray, creeped out Michelle Williams, and been riddled with bullets by Jodie Foster. But since 1985, Fessenden (the art-horror auteur behind THE LAST WINTER, WENDIGO and HABIT) has also supported emerging voices in the arts through his fiercely independent, NYC-based production outfit Glass Eye Pix. Like a socially conscious Roger Corman, Fessenden has nurtured a family of filmmakers that includes Kelly Reichardt (WENDY AND LUCY), Joe Maggio (BITTER FEAST) and Ti West (THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL).

In honor of Glass Eye Pix's first quarter-century of cinematic mayhem, reRun Gastropub Theater is proud to present a two-week retrospective showcasing this tireless producer's strange and wonderful career. "Larry Fessenden: 25 Years of Glass Eye Pix" runs October 22 - November 4.

FRIDAY, OCT. 22:

I Sell the Dead

7pm - I SELL THE DEAD [trailer]
(2008, directed by Glenn McQuaid, 85 minutes) 

19th century justice has finally caught up to grave robbers Arthur Blake (Dominic Monaghan) and Willie Grimes (Larry Fessenden). With the specter of the guillotine looming over him, young Blake confides in visiting clergyman Father Duffy (Ron Perlman), recounting fifteen years of adventure in the resurrection trade. His tale leads from humble beginnings as a young boy stealing trinkets from corpses, to a partnership with seasoned ghoul Willie as they hunt creatures unwilling to accept their place in the ground. The colorful and peculiar history of Grimes and Blake is one filled with adventure, horror, and vicious rivalries that threaten to put all involved in the very graves they’re trying to pilfer.

SATURDAY, OCT. 23:

Habit

12pm - HABIT [trailer]
(1997, directed by Larry Fessenden, 112 minutes)

Autumn in New York. Sam (Larry Fessenden) has broken up with his girlfriend and his father has recently died. World-weary and sloppy drunk, he finds temporary solace in the arms of Anna (Meredith Snaider), a mysterious woman who draws him away from his friends and into a web of addiction and madness. Nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards and called "As evocative of New York-style paranoia as BAD LIEUTENANT, ROSEMARY'S BABY or TAXI DRIVER" (Amy Taubin, Village Voice).

 

SUNDAY, OCT 24:

I Can See You

12pm - I CAN SEE YOU [trailer]
(2008, directed by Graham Reznick, 97 minutes)
Screens with the 2009 short THE VIEWER, directed by Graham Reznick. 3D glasses provided.

Three aspiring ad-men take a weekend in the wilderness, brainstorming for their first assignment: to overhaul the image of a once-household cleaning product, Claractix. While in the woods, a girlfriend’s mysterious disappearance sparks a harrowing descent into unreality. Personalities contort into extremes and visits are made by a specter from Claractix campaigns of the past as the film careens to its startling climax. The New York Times says: "I CAN SEE YOU heralds a splendid new filmmaker with one eye on genre mechanics, one eye on avant-garde conceits and a third eye for transcendental weirdness... Graham Reznick arrives with a bang."

 

MONDAY, OCT 25:

The Roost

7pm - THE ROOST [trailer]
(2005, directed by Ti West, 80 minutes)

Following a near-death car accident, four friends on their way to a Halloween wedding, venture to a secluded farm for help. Little do they know, they will soon disturb an ancient evil with far more ghastly plans in store for them! In the true spirit of classic horror cinema, THE ROOST revisits the land of low budget offerings with a fresh independent look... sure to put a demented smile on the faces of fright fans everywhere! LA Weekly says: "THE ROOST was made for about one-hundredth the cost of most Hollywood genre fare and has at least a thousand times the imagination."

 

The House of the Devil

10pm - THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL [trailer]
(2009, directed by Ti West, 95 minutes) 

In this '80s-set satanic thriller, pretty college sophomore Sam (Jocelyn Donahue) is so desperate to earn some cash for a deposit on an apartment that she accepts a babysitting job even after she finds out there is no baby. Mr. and Mrs. Ulman (cult actors Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov) are the older couple who lure Sam out to their creeky Victorian mansion deep in the woods, just in time for a total lunar eclipse. Megan (Greta Gerwig) is Sam's best friend, who gives her a ride out to the house, and reluctantly leaves her there despite suspecting that something is amiss, not knowing that Sam will end this night in a bloody fight for her life. Paper Magazine says the film "playfully subverts the horror film genre by insidiously setting up the mood and letting it eerily and slowly play out before slamming home with a fiendish finale."

 

TUESDAY, OCT 26:

Wendigo

10pm - WENDIGO [trailer]
(2001, directed by Larry Fessenden, 90 minutes)
Screens with the 2008 short BLOOD RED EARTH, directed by JT Petty.

A blue Volvo makes its way through the fading light this chilly winter evening in Upstate New York. Kim (Patricia Clarkson), George (Jake Weber) and their eight-year old son Miles (Erik Per Sullivan) are city dwellers stealing a weekend away at a friend's country farmhouse. But a fluke accident sets off a chain of events that alters their lives forever and conjures up the ferocious spirit of the Wendigo, a Native American myth made manifest in Miles' imagination. LA Weekly calls it "a darkly beautiful, genuinely scary movie about elemental beastliness that lives in even the most civilized among us."

 

WEDNESDAY, OCT 27:

Trigger Man

7pm - TRIGGER MAN [trailer]
(2007, directed by Ti West, 80 minutes) 

A horrific story inspired by true events. Reggie, Sean, and Ray leave Manhattan for a day trip of deer hunting in Delaware, expecting to drink a few beers in the woods, free of the city-life responsibilities that are slowly forcing these childhood friends apart. But with one well-aimed shot, a walk in the sun is transformed into a frantic and desperate fight for survival, as TRIGGER MAN morphs from a character-driven rural amble into a "smartly compact and radical survival thriller" (Variety), using stripped-down techniques to relentlessly build tension to "a genuinely terrifying payoff" (New York Sun).

FRIDAY, OCT 29:

No Telling

7pm - NO TELLING [trailer]
(1991, directed by Larry Fessenden, 93 minutes) 

When Lillian Gaines moves to the country with her husband for a quiet summer retreat, she never suspects that meeting activist Alex Vine will force her to confront her deepest fears about the man she married, and the bizarre experiments under way in his lab. Blending horror and a sense of irony that turns genre clichés on their heads, NO TELLING raises some of the most critical issues of our time. The Village Voice calls Fessenden's directorial debut "a smart, spare, skewed update of the Frankenstein story." *** LARRY FESSENDEN Live in Person! ***

The Last Winter

9:30pm - THE LAST WINTER [trailer]
(2006, directed by Larry Fessenden, 101 minutes) 

James Le Gros, Ron Perlman, Connie Britton and Zach Gilford star in the film about which PAN'S LABYRINTH director Guillermo Del Toro praised: "Larry Fessenden is one of the most original voices to emerge in the horror field and THE LAST WINTER is his most accomplished work to date." In the Arctic region of Northern Alaska, an oil company's advance team struggles to establish a drilling base that will forever alter the pristine land. After one team member is found dead, a disorientation slowly claims the sanity of the others as each of them succumbs to a mysterious fear. *** LARRY FESSENDEN Live in Person! ***

Satan Hates You

10pm - SATAN HATES YOU [trailer]
(2009, directed by James Felix McKenney, 94 minutes)

Inspired by films from the golden age of religious cinema such as A THIEF IN THE NIGHT (1972), IF FOOTMEN TIRE YOU, WHAT WILL HORSES DO? (1971) and STALKED (1969), SATAN HATES YOU is a graphic horror film that tells the stories of two individuals and their personal struggles with Lucifer himself. Marc (Don Wood) is a homicidal maniac driven by demons buried deep within his soul, and Wendy (Christine Spencer) lives life fast and hard without a second's thought to the consequences. Their separate paths will eventually cross, but will it be on the road to salvation or the highway to hell? "Weird and wild... a truly subversive work of art" (Shock Cinema).

 

THURSDAY, NOV 4:

Automatons

7pm - AUTOMATONS [trailer]
(2006, directed by James Felix McKenney, 83 minutes) 

Somewhere in the distant future, The Girl (Christine Spencer) is alone. She is the last of her people, the others having died in a generations-long war that the girl continues to fight with the assistance of a group of antiquated robot helpers and soldiers.Her only connection to her long-dead people is a collection of recorded journal entries made by the scientist (PHANTASM star Angus Scrimm) who cared for her as a baby. His is the only friendly human face she’s ever seen. The regular transmissions from her enemy's leader are always filled with threats and taunts. The girl responds to these invasions by attack of her own, carried out by her mechanical soldiers on the contaminated surface where no human can survive.Men started this war. The machines will finish it. The New York Times called it "enormously endearing," and the Village Voice said: "Robot radness achieved!"
