Halloween (1978)

John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic finally gets a digitally restored print supervised by original cinematographer Dean Cundey. The simple premise about a masked killer who returns to stalk his hometown became a template for modern horror movies. Jamie Lee Curtis kicked off her career as screaming babysitter Laurie Strode, on the run from knife-wielding maniac Michael Myers. A holiday favorite! 91 minutes R. (Saturday 10/29)

Morosely amused indie filmmaker Tod Solondz returns briefly to the life of awkward suburban gal Dawn Wiener (from 1995's Welcome to the Dollhouse). She's now played by mumblecore muse Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha, Mistress America, Maggie's Plan), and she's just one of several dysfunctional pet owners whose lives are touched by a dachshund who passes from person to person. Julie Delpy, Kieran Culkin, Ellen Burstyn and Danny DeVito are among the cast of this bizarre ensemble comedy. As usual for Solondz (who also gave us Happiness, Storytelling, Palindromes and Dark Horse), this is dusted with cringe-inducing, humanity-hating humor. FULL REVIEW: Morosely amused filmmaker constructs a shaggy dog tale for a change by Devin D. O’Leary (7/14/2016). 90 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 11/4)
SUB Theater Thu 7:00

The Witch

The Witch

This moody, psychological and spiritual shocker is better classified as a supernatural drama than a horror film. The scares are slow in coming in this tale of a pilgrim family exiled from their Puritan community, circa 1630, and forced to live on the edge of a very forbidding forest. When crops begin to fail and a baby vanishes, the various family members are quick to find blame--either in each other, or in a vague satanic threat that may or may not exist in the woods. Writer-director Robert Eggers allegedly took much of his dialogue from transcripts of actual New England witch trials. The tone of primordial doom and gloom is palpable, but the film loses some steam in abandoning its metaphorical horrors for more concrete boogeymen. FULL REVIEW: Historical horror combines pilgrims and paranoia by Devin D. O’Leary (2/18/2016). 92 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 10/27)
SUB Theater Fri-Sat 6:00, 8:00; Sun 1:00, 3:00
