Horror Time in the City

Nothing's scarier than New York in July and August, when the steam sets into the pavement and the rats get that look in their eyes, so its appropriate that we've got some movie options to go along with the sensations already rotting our flesh anyway -- as I already told you about last month the Quad is screening a series of six very fine giallo films starting this very weekend, including the totally gorgeous Fifth Cord which stars that finely mustachioed fellow Franco Nero you see above. Anyway today IndieWire was nice enough to cut together a trailer for the series, you can check it out at this link! I've seen all of these movies save one and they're all a lot of groovy stylish fun. 

The other big horror reveal today is Film At Lincoln Center has announced this year's "Scary Movies" line-up, which contains several HOLY SHIT moments, including the world premiere of Ari Aster's 3-hour Director's Cut of Midsommar (theatrical cut reviewed here) -- can I get a HOLY SHIT? HOLY SHIT! Besides that they're screening the terrific looking wedding night murder game movie Ready or Not (with my Halt and Catch Fire boyfriend Mark O'Brien in attendance), a flick called The Wolf Hour that has Naomi Watts trapped in her apartment during the so-called "Summer of Sam," and Villains, which stars Bill Skarsgard & Maika Monroe as a pair of lovers on the run who come face to face with even crazier crazies played by Jeffrey Donovan & Kyra Sedgwick. Check out the whole line-up here; "Scary Movies" runs August 16th through the 21st.
