Here we are at the top of another new week, at the tail end of November. And that means our horror is about to turn seasonal! Which reminds me, limited edition Gremlin Tiki Mugs are still available. Just select one with your ticket at one of these screenings. A second screening of Gremlins has also been added for Tuesday, December 13th, if you wanted to make Terror Tuesday a double feature. Order yours before they're sold out!
This is another light movie week in the bay area, but there are definitely some huge titles info the lineup. One of these moves was actually just re-released recently, so you'd better catch it in 35mm while you still can. This is also the week of the Roxie Mixtape 3, a day of short films made by bay area film makers. Details below.

The film opens with serial killer Brad Dourif taking refuge in a doll factory. Dourif is killed by the cops, but not before he has invoked a voodoo curse which transfers his soul into one of the dolls.
