35mm Archival presentation - The A.V. Club’s New Cult Canon series comes back with a jingle this holiday season with a series of holiday film screenings around the country—all brought to life by our friends at Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
A.V. Club film editor Scott Tobias has been covering The New Cult Canon—cult films released from 1995 onward—for the last few years, turning his explorations into one of the most popular features on the site. The A.V. Club has even done some special screenings of cult movies around the country—including many with special guests. With some help from the folks at Mike’s Hard Lemonade, we’re taking the show on the road to celebrate the 2012 holiday season.
All events are open to guests 21 and older, and the cost of admission includes samples of Mike’s Hard Lemonade beverages, including Mike’s new, limited-edition holiday flavor, Hard Chocolate Cherry.
Black Christmas (1974): Halloween gets all the credit for kick-starting the ‘80s slasher movement, but Bob Clark’s ho-ho-horrifying 1974 cult classic Black Christmas was the true source, specifically of the first-person “killer-cam” that came into fashion. Clark’s moody chiller about a psycho stalking a sorority house over Christmas break has other highlights, too, including Margot Kidder as a chain-smoking, transcendently bitchy sister.
