NIGHT LIGHT

A GOOD MOVIE CAN MAKE YOUR DAY. A GREAT ONE CAN RUIN YOUR LIFE.

What makes a film “cult?” Is it a lost masterpiece? A “so bad it’s good” camp treasure? Or, like the haunted VHS tape in THE RING, is it a dark, dark door that should have never been opened?
 
Cinema Salem brings you entries from the cult canon and new nuggets of negative energy, ready to be unearthed. 
 
While Salem sleeps, we keep the light burning.
 
 
All shows are Friday night, 10 pm

Roar

Night Light presents a series of classic and contemporary cult films from around the world on the second and fourth Friday of every month.

--------------------------------------------------------------

"The most dangerous film ever made."

No animals were harmed in the making of this movie. 70 members of the cast and crew were.

An unprecedented––and wholly unpredictable––action-adventure, Roar follows wildlife preservationist Hank (The Exorcist producer Noel Marshall in his sole and career-derailing turn as an actor and director), who lives harmoniously alongside a menagerie of over 100 untamed animals, including cheetahs, elephants, lions and tigers on a preservation in the African plains. When his wife and children arrive (real-life wife Tippi Hedren, The Birds, and step-daughter Melanie Griffith, Working Girl) for a visit, a long-brewing battle for dominance between the lions erupts and threatens their very lives.

1981/USA/Directed by Noel Marshall

Long Weekend

Night Light presents a series of classic and contemporary cult films from around the world on the second and fourth Friday of every month.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Attempting to resurrect their failing marriage, Peter and Marcia trample through the deserted countryside, hoping a long weekend will patch up their differences. As they inadvertently destroy everything in their tracks, scattering garbage and shooting anything that moves, their callous disregard becomes apparent to them when the animals seek vengeance!

LONG WEEKEND has notes of POSSESSION's marital anarchy, with a healthy amount of Hitchcockian flair and the stark hellscapes of THE SEVENTH SEAL transposed onto the unforgiving Outback. Essential viewing.

1979/Australia/Directed by Colin Eggleston

Freeway

Night Light presents a series of classic and contemporary cult films from around the world on the second and fourth Friday of every month.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Reese Witherspoon as potty-mouthed white trash Vanessa Lutz is among her most underrated roles. In this modern take on Little Red Riding Hood, Kiefer Sutherland plays the not subtly named Bob Wolverton, a serial killer who meets his match in Vanessa, a fifteen year old on her way to her grandmother’s after her parents are both arrested. Bob picks her up hitchhiking, gains her trust and then reveals himself - but Vanessa is sharp and quick, shooting him and leaving him for dead. Trouble is, he doesn’t die, and instead she finds herself on trial. Can this bad behaving juvenile delinquent win against a well-respected school counselor? You better believe she won’t go down without a fight! Written and directed by Matthew Bright, best known as the screenwriter for FORBIDDEN ZONE, FREEWAY is impressive and often hilarious with a great supporting cast including Brooke Shields, Amanda Plummer and Dan Hedaya.

1996/USA/Directed by Matthew Bright
