The Halfway House

Writer/director Kenneth J. Hall (Puppet Master, Evil Spawn, Dr. Alien) combines elements of '60s H.P. Lovecraft films, '70s "women in prison" movies and '80s slasher flicks to create this trashy fun exploitation romp. When a young gal's sister goes missing inside the Mary Magdalene Halfway House for Troubled Girls, she takes matters into her own hands. Before long, a web of sadistic priests, mysterious nuns, naughty schoolgirls and slobbering monsters is uncovered. Cult legend Mary Woronov (Death Race 2000, Rock 'n' Roll High School) stars as the nasty Sister Cecilia. Filmmaker Kenneth J. Hall and local scream queen Stephanie Leighs (who stars as "Cherry Pie" Polowski) will be on hand to introduce this Southwest premiere. 84 minutes
