It's Alive, Larry Cohen's 1974 cult thriller starring John P. Ryan, Sharron Farrell, James Dixon and Guy Stockwell, is celebrating it's 40th anniversary with a screening at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles.  The film will be screening on Thursday, October 16th, 2014 at 10:00 pm.  Director Cohen and actress Farrell are scheduled to appear in person to discuss the film.  From the press release:

Our modern world is full of marvels - but also polluted air, foods sprayed with deadly chemicals, misused drugs and hidden radioactive substances. Ever wonder how these poisons might affect a developing child in the womb? This cult thriller offers a shocking possibility - and in so doing has become a creepy cult classic! It's Alive is the first film of the now-legendary terror trilogy from writer/director Larry Cohen (Q: The Winged Serpent, God Told Me To) about murderous mutants - and its birth was chillingly midwived by the crucial contributions of two Academy Award winners: makeup master Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London), who created the makeup and "played" the infant monster, and composer Bernard Herrmann (Psycho).

The Nuart Theatre is located at 11272 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90067.  It can be reached at (310) 473 - 8530

George A. Romero's MARTIN Screening in Brooklyn, NY

George Romero is best known to horror film fans for his Living Dead films.  My personal favorite, and what I consider to be his best film, is Martin (1976), a highly under-rated film shot just prior to what is perhaps his most beloved film, Dawn of the Dead (1978).  The title character is portrayed with understated grace by actor John Amplas as a young man whose uncle is convinced that he is a vampire. 

The film will be screened at the beautiful Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn, NY on Monday, August 4, 2014.  Actor John Amplas will be on hand to discuss the film with Fangoria's Sam Zimmerman and answer questions following the 9:30 pm screening.

Italian film director Michele Soavi's stunning directorial debut Stagefright (1987) is coming to Blu-ray in the UK.  Though it has existed under several alternate titles over the many years since its release, Stagefright, a longtime favorite among fans of the giallo and slasher genres, has rarely been accurately represented on home video.  The one notable exception has been the British DVD done released in 2000 which was mastered from the original camera negative.  The new DVD/Blu-ray combo promises to add more color and clarity to the film. 

This is a limited edition with a pressing of just 3,000 copies due for release on September 15, 2014.  Click here to pre-order.
