Northwest Film Forum Capitol Hill
Oct 3–Nov 3, Wednesdays
Deregulation and out-of-control greed were not the only horrors of President Ronald Reagan's reign. Northwest Film Forum celebrates slashers, mutants, and gore in a deep dive into the paranoia and excess (and mullets) of the era, and boy does that sound like a fun escape from our own hellscape. Catch the last films around Halloween: the truly weird suburban-conformity horror Society (Oct 31) and a new restoration of John Carpenter's chilling sea-ghost tale, The Fog (Nov 1–3).
