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.

Hellraiser (1987)

February 14th, 2022

We're kicking off our deep dives for the month of love with Hellraiser, the 1987 British supernatural horror film written and directed by Clive Barker, in his directorial debut.  The film is based on Barker’s 1986 novella The Hellbound Heart, and its plot focuses on a mystical puzzle box which summons the Cenobites, a group of extra-dimensional sadomasochistic beings who do not differentiate between pain and pleasure.

Scott, Brad Dourif, Ed Flanders, Jason Miller, and Nicol Williamson.
