Home / Now Showing / DONNIE DARKO / THE EVIL DEAD
DONNIE DARKO, 2001, Dir: Richard Kelly, 113 Minutes, AGFA, USA.
“A haunted miasma of youthful alienation, suburban malaise, cosmic upheaval, and 1980s pop-cultural infatuation.”
—Justin Chang, L.A. Times
Before “Stranger Things” combined science fiction, Spielberg-ian thrills, and 1980s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the high-water mark with DONNIE DARKO. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium. Described by its director as “The Catcher In The Rye as told by Philip K. Dick,” DONNIE DARKO stars Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Patrick Swayze, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, and Noah Wyle.
THE EVIL DEAD, 1981, Dir: Sam Raimi, 85 Minutes, Box Office Spectaculars, USA.
When five college students, led by Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell), arrive at a secluded mountain cabin for vacation, they find themselves under attack by an army of evil spirits and possessed trees. The ancient demon resurrected from a tape recorder the kids find in the cellar isn’t helping, either. Realizing the woods won’t let them leave without a fight, Ash is forced to take matters into his own capable hands and fend off the Deadites picking his friends off one by one.
