Inner Demons
Premiere: Friday, October 24 • NR • Horror • 85 min

Presented by Nightmares on High Street

When the teenage daughter of a religious family transforms from A-student into heroin addict, her parents agree to allow a reality TV crew to stage an intervention and tape her recovery. What they don't know is that she has been taking drugs to deal with the unnatural, evil feelings growing inside her. When she agrees to rehab, with no drugs to suppress what's inside, the demon emerges.

Exploring the blurry lines between addiction, possession and mental illness, director Seth Grossman refreshes the horror genre with a grounded, layered story of a young girl's battle against demonic possession. INNER DEMONS utilizes the reality show format to good effect, opting for minimal but effective special effects contribute to the film's mood of gnawing dread that the worst is yet to come.

The Shining (1980)
Premiere: Friday, October 24 • R • Horror • 144 min

Presented by Nightmares on High Street: FromThe Crypt

Spend Halloween week with the Gateway Film Center and Stanley Kubrick's horror classic, THE SHINING (1980).

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" -- or, rather, a homicidal boy in this eerie 1980 adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel. With wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and psychic son Danny (Danny Lloyd) in tow, frustrated writer Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) takes a job as the winter caretaker at the opulently ominous, mountain-locked Overlook Hotel so that he can write in peace. Before the Overlook is vacated for the Torrances, the manager (Barry Nelson) informs Jack that a previous caretaker went crazy and slaughtered his family; Jack thinks it's no problem, but Danny's "shining" hints otherwise. Settling into their routine, Danny cruises through the empty corridors on his Big Wheel and plays in the topiary maze with Wendy, while Jack sets up shop in a cavernous lounge with strict orders not to be disturbed. Danny's alter ego, "Tony," however, starts warning of "redrum" as Danny is plagued by more blood-soaked visions of the past, and a blocked Jack starts visiting the hotel bar for a few visions of his own. Frightened by her husband's behavior and Danny's visit to the forbidding Room 237, Wendy soon discovers what Jack has really been doing in his study all day, and what the hotel has done to Jack.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Premiere: Friday, October 24 • PG • Science Fiction • 114 min.

Presented by Heebie-Jeebie

Both a classic movie for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood, E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (1982) is a sci-fi adventure that captures that strange moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities (some wonderful, some awful), and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups. Henry Thomas plays Elliott, a young boy living with his single mother (Dee Wallace), his older brother Michael (Robert MacNaughton), and his younger sister Gertie (Drew Barrymore). Elliott often seems lonely and out of sorts, lost in his own world. One day, while looking for something in the back yard, he senses something mysterious in the woods watching him. And he's right: an alien spacecraft on a scientific mission mistakenly left behind an aging botanist who isn't sure how to get home. Eventually Elliott puts his fears aside and makes contact with the "little squashy guy," perhaps the least threatening alien invader ever to hit a movie screen. As Elliott tries to keep the alien under wraps and help him figure out a way to get home, he discovers that the creature can communicate with him telepathically. Soon they begin to learn from each other, and Elliott becomes braver and less threatened by life. E.T. rigs up a communication device from junk he finds around the house, but no one knows if he'll be rescued before a group of government scientists gets hold of him.
