For our first double feature screening, we will be showing two movies that are sure to get you in the mood for Valentine's Day: Takashi Miike's Audition (1999) and some classic 80's slasher cheese, My Bloody Valentine (1981): believe me, much to be preferred over the horrendous 3D remake.
A widower wants another shot at true love and decides to screen some girls to see who will work best for him. A typical romantic comedy set-up? He should be so lucky. At the Rotterdam Film Festival, this movie had a record number of walkouts; one person even passed out and had to be taken to the emergency room. Sounds like just about every other rom-com I've ever seen.
Okay, so Freddy, Jason, and Michael are the major knife-wielders of the eighties, but did they have their own end credits country music ballad? I didn't think so. Watch idiotic nubile teenagers die horrible deaths. Hear deranged old men in seedy podunk bars talk about how they're all doomed. And remember: "In this town on Valentine's Day, everybody loses their heart."
This double-feature screening will be held at the Lewis Library Bowl Classroom 138 on February 8 from 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM. Pizza and soft drinks will be served before the start of the first film.
