Scream Screen Presents: The Psychosexual Films Of David Cronenberg says
Scream Screen hosted by Theresa Mercado returns on a new night (Fridays at 9:30p) for its sixth run at the Sie FilmCenter with a new four-film series showcasing "The Psychosexual Films of David Cronenberg" with SHIVERS (aka: THEY CAME FROM WITHIN), THE BROOD on 35mm, VIDEODROME and DEAD RINGERS.

The previous films in the series include: "Journey Into a Damaged Brain," "The Horror Films of John Carpenter," "When Animals Attack!", "The Giallo Films of Dario Argento" and "The Films of the New French Extremity."

2/3- SHIVERS (aka: THEY CAME FROM WITHIN) (1975) The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact.

And synth guitar spooks Voight will be playing at 9:30p before the movie!

2/10- THE BROOD on 35mm!! (1979) A man tries to uncover an unconventional psychologist's therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife, amidst a series of brutal murders.

Experimental electronic shoegazers Pythian Whispers will be playing at 9:30p before THE BROOD!

2/17- VIDEODROME (1983) A sleazy cable-TV programmer (James Woods) begins to see his life and the future of media spin out of control in a very unusual fashion when he acquires a new kind of programming for his station.

And playing at 9:30p before the film VIDEODROME will be the band Videodrome (members of Strafgod, rotten blue menace, MOB)...a mix of pure hardcore and violent noise punk, crushing riffs and pounding drums delivered by four of Denver's resident freaks. Following the total sensory assault that is Videodrome, the human mind is only capable of one singular conclusion.... LONG LIVE THE NEW FLESH!

2/24- DEAD RINGERS (1988) Identical twin gynecologists (flawlessly played by Jeremy Irons) take full advantage of the fact that nobody can tell them apart, until their relationship begins to deteriorate over a woman.

And DBUK will be playing at 9:30p before the film! Featuring members of Slim Cessna's Auto Club and Munly and the Lupercalians, this dark gothic four-piece will be performing an acoustic set in the lobby.
