OCTOBER 25 - NOVEMBER 7, 2012, Vienna, Austria

"THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD marks both the beginning and end of my subjectively selected film series. We will present the 1951 original by Christian Nyby as well as John Carpenter’s 1982 remake The Thing, a milestone in analogue special-effect cinema. What lies between is poles apart and includes such different genre gems as Tobe Hooper’s splatter classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the British giant-eye film THE TROLLENBERG TERROR , Japanese monster trash like Uchû daikaijû Girara/The X from Outer Space featuring a huge, extraterrestrial green chicken and Mario Bava’s secret Alien prototype TERRORE NELLO SPAZIO/PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES. You can look forward to staggering mushroom people, chainsaw-brandishing backwoodsman and slimy tentacle monsters. To get you in the right mood, here’s another quote from the end of the trailer for THE HILLS HAVE EYES: “She thought she knew what the world was all about, but nothing prepared her for this!"
