WYRD WAR says
Wyrd War proudly presents what we very earnestly believe to be one of the greatest cinematic triumphs of the late 20th century. Join us for this one-night-only screening of Alejandro Jodorowsky's absolutely devastating masterpiece of psychological terror and heart-rending beauty, SANTA SANGRE (1989).

Loosely based on the true story of a convicted Mexican serial killer who is released from a mental hospital only to become entangled in the familial roots of his madness, acclaimed Chilean-Russian-French auteur Jodorowsky tosses every sacred cow and Freudian symbol into the meat grinder as he propels his audience on a violent mythological journey into the very darkest night of the soul. At turns hilarious, horrifying and utterly perplexing, SANTE SANGRE is ultimately more linear than his more infamous films EL TOPO (1970) and HOLY MOUNTAIN (1973), but is all the more impactful for its serrated carnival vision. Filmed entirely on location in Mexico and produced/co-written by Claudio Argento (SUSPIRIA, DEEP RED, DAWN OF THE DEAD, etc.), SANTA SANGRE is a love poem to the rich history of horror cinema even as it spirals toward the most outer fringes of genre.

This newly restored digital transfer of the original uncut negative will be nothing less than a rite of passage for your eyeballs (and ears)! You have been warned...
