Cinema Ray & PUFF present The Evil Within

15 years in the making, The Evil Within could be the next horror cult classic!

Andrew Getty, heir to the Getty Oil fortune, poured $5M of his own money in this production and he personally agonized over every frame. During the 5 years of production, he insisted on elaborate, expensive sets, custom-built camera rigs, and realistic animatronics.  Over the course of 15 years, this horror film consumed Andrew Getty.  He never saw it completed as he died from a methamphetamine overdose on March 31, 3015.

Now YOU can experience the madness due to the collaboration between PUFF & Cinema Ray!  The film with be introduced by PUFF founder, Madeleine Koestner and Birth.Movies.Death. writer, Phil Nobile Jr.

“Adventures from deep space to futuristic New York, and beyond. Each world and story is dominated by the presence of the Loch’nar — the sum of all evils manifest as a glowing green sphere whose power infects all times, all galaxies, all dimensions. To some, it appears as treasure, a green jewel they must possess. Others worship it as a god. Few escape it. Even in death and through death its powers continue. From war to war and world to world it seems invincible.”

Cinema Ray presents Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom

Cinema Ray presents the once banned (and certainly still controversial) film Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom in which four fascists kidnap young men and women and subject them to torture and perversion.  Mature content!

The final work of notorious Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini, this film updates the Marquis de Sade’s most extreme novel to fascist Italy in the final days of WW II. Dispensing with the novel’s meditations on sexual liberation and the search for truth, Pasolini presents four decadents who kidnap dozens of young men and women and subject them to the most hideous forms of torture and perversion in an isolated villa. Rape, murder, and a coprophagic banquet are only the beginning of the atrocities on display. Photographed by Tonino Delli Colli, the film also features a lavish score by Ennio Morricone. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Seating is limited, so be sure to arrive early to make sure you get drinks and snacks!  A short pre-show will features selected shorts and trailers.

$5 admission, doors at 7:15
$1 all beef or veggie bean tacos from noon – until we run out
