Midnight Screenings 

  • The Crazies The Crazies / The Crazies
    Directed by: George A. Romero
    USA, 1973, 103 min

    The Crazies serves as a chillingly complex metaphor for American society after the Vietnam War, or more precisely after “Vietnamization,” the US process of distancing itself from the conflict. Even at the level of the individual the inescapable madness manifests itself in a variety of forms: from alarmingly uninformed soldiers and a maniacal military scientist to infected civilians and a conscientious colonel, who is sent to the contaminated area only to be withdrawn after failing to do anything about it.

    A rube named Pepa robs cottages for cash and spends his free time swilling rum at fourth-rate establishments. The discovery of a strange video recording points him to a place where he’ll find a treasure of immense value. The mysterious place in northern Bohemia, however, awakens avarice far and wide and, seemingly, it’s got a plan for all those who turn up.…

    The midnight hit of the Sundance festival combines elements of horror fiction and documentary to create an exceptionally powerful statement about sleep paralysis, a transitional state between wakefulness and slumber during which an individual temporarily loses muscle control. Would you dare enter an actual world of terrifying experiences for which there is still no satisfactory explanation?

They are now afraid someone is using witchcraft on them…
