Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999)

April 18th, 2022

We're rounding out comedy month with Drop Dead Gorgeous, a 1999 American satirical black comedy mockumentary film directed by Michael Patrick Jann and written by Lona Williams, in which the dynamics of a small Minnesota town unfold as multiple contestants in the regional American Teen Princess Pageant begin to die mysteriously. The film stars Kirsten Dunst, Ellen Barkin, Allison Janey, Denise Richards, and Kirstie Alley, all of whom sport over the top Midwestern accents.

Death Becomes Her (1992)

April 11th, 2022

We're kicking off our annual comedy month with Death Becomes Her - a 1992 American satirical black comedy horror fantasy film directed and produced by Robert Zemeckis. The score for the film was composed by Alan Silvestri, and stars Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn as rivals who fight for the affections of the same man and drink a magic potion that promises eternal youth but causes unpleasant side effects.  The film was a pioneer in the use of computer-generated effects and was widely regarded as some of the best work up to that point and beyond.

The Witches of Eastwick (1987)

May 11th, 2020

Join us for a fascinating deep-dive into George Miller's 1987 genre-bending film The Witches of Eastwick, starring Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Susan Sarandon as the eponymous witches, and Jack Nicholson as "just your average horny little devil". It was a challenge to cherry pick our way through the myriad themes, behind the scenes drama and original source material, but with a little hocus pocus, we think we've managed to do it justice!
