Greenwich Library to screen ‘You’re Next’

A chilling horror movie that scared audiences last year is coming to Greenwich Library just in time to set a spooky mood.

Librarian Ed Morrissey’s monthly film series is devoted to bringing patrons classic cult movies from Hollywood, Europe and the rest of the world. Mr. Morrissey will begin and end each screening with a brief discussion of the film’s production and its influence over the decades. Both film buffs and ingénues are welcome.

On Thursday, Oct. 16, at 6:30 p.m., Cult Films will screen You’re Next. This gory comedy-thriller meets dysfunctional family-dramedy is a low budget slasher film from director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett. A couple (Barbara Crampton/Rob Moran) decide to celebrate their wedding anniversary with their four grown children and their significant others at a remote and rundown weekend estate.

All goes bloodily awry when the home comes under siege by a mask-wearing team of crossbow/ax/garotte/machete-wielding assailants. The film is in color, 95 minutes long, and is rated R for violence and language.

In the course of the series, Mr. Morrissey will cover a wide sweep of genres, comedies, crime noir, horror, thrillers, musicals, spaghetti westerns, Hitchcock, Fellini and more. It’s these so-called fringe or over-the-top movies that Greenwich Library Cult Films, through the library’s extensive catalog, intends to expose to a much wider and appreciative audience.

Patrons interested in cult films should visit www.greenwichlibrary.org/CultFilms.aspx to read some of Ed’s deep dives into the world of cult films in his blog, and for a complete list of upcoming films in this new series.

Up next, mark your calendars for Clint Eastwood’s breakout film Fistful of Dollars (1964) on Wednesday, Nov. 5, at 6:30 p.m. This series is open to all at no charge and will be held in the meeting room.
