Nocturnal Emissions – The People Under the Stairs
$16 General Admission

One of director Wes Craven’s most unusual and subversively funny films delivers the thrills and gore one comes to expect from the director of A Nightmare on Elm Street, while also offering a scathing satire of conservatism, gentrification, inequality, and unchecked greed – in other words, a film possibly even more relevant today than when it was released in 1991. When 13-year-old Poindexter “Fool” Williams (Brandon Adams) and a criminal-minded neighbor (Ving Rhames) break into the sprawling suburban mansion of a pair of heartless slumlords (Twin Peaks stars Wendy Robie and Everett McGill serving up wonderfully over-the-top performances), they uncover a labyrinth of twisted, terrifying secrets – including a basement filled with cannibalistic children!
Our Mistress of the Macabre Isabella Price will kick the screening off with a frightful and stimulating live performance, and we’ll help you experience the delicious taste of human flesh with free gummy body part candy!
