Directed by Lamberto Bava

Italy 1985 88 mins.

Lamberto Bava’s 1985 horror about a cursed film screening is an exercise in the boundaries of meta-terror. After being mysteriously invited to a horror film screening, a group of college students find that the film has some uncanny similarities to their own lives – then they realize they can’t escape the theater.  As they struggle to find or make an exit, various members of the audience start to become possessed, echoing the very film they just watched.
