Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights!
Our three-show run of brand new films concludes this Friday with something of a very different flavor, the Norwegian dark fairytale Thale [tah-lay]. Light on gore and heavy on mood, this beautiful little film is what you might expect if Guillermo del Toro had written and directed the Jodie Foster movie Nell. This may be your only chance to catch the film on the big screen, so join us!
Friday April 5th @ midnight.
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
The frozen Nordic wastes have been an excellent locale to set new horror films of the past few years (Trollhunter and Rare Exports being solid examples), and Thale is most devious of the bunch, drawing on gnarled, twisted Norwegian folklore to wave a supremely creepy tale/tail of the supernatural. In it, we follow two crime scene janitorial workers who uncover a mute, naked girl in one of the gore-soaked sites they’ve been hired to scrub. Said girl just happens to have a prehensile tail — and ancient, grisly weirdness ensues from there! Like the best indie horror films, Thale uses its limited means to its great advantage, as it piles on the claustrophobia and dread until you can feel the grip of a furry rear appendage closing around your own throat. A well-acted and smart shocker for your Spring jollies.
For theater info or ticket purchases go here.
I feel like this is fairly obvious, yet it apparently could stand to be more obvious: This screening is happening in Los Angeles.
As always I am giving away some free tickets (each with a +1). To enter all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with THALE in the subject line. Include your full name. I will only be contacting the winners.
