Shriek: Ringu And Happy Hour says

Doors at 6:30pm, Discussion and Film at 7:00pm

SHRIEK: A Women of Horror Film Class has just moved to a new day and venue: second Sundays at Naked City Brewery and Taphouse! It's Happy Hour all day for SHRIEK at Naked City so come early to grab a bite, a pint and get your seats!

SHRIEK is a community education series that examines the roles of women in horror films. In September, discussion leaders and film buffs Evan J. Peterson and Heather Marie Bartels will provide an Asian horror mini-fest, leading the group in a viewing and discussion of two films: Ringu (Sept 11) and A Tale of Two Sisters (Sept 25).

Ringu (Ring) is the story of a journalist who must uncover (ahem) the secret of a video tape that leads to certain death. This is one of the best examples of the Japanese horror trope of cursed media/technology, a widespread trend in J-horror and its Western remakes. Based on Koji Suzuki's horror mystery novels, this iconic film led to the highly successful American adaptation, part of the Western world's J-horror influx of the 21st century.

Join us Sunday, September 11!

SHRIEK is a community class merging film with education and offering an accessible forum outside of academia. The goal is to offer low-cost opportunities to learn about film and women's studies and to inspire more diverse filmmakers to get involved as creators in the genre. Naked City Brewery sponsors the series in their screening room, with film sponsorship from Scarecrow Video.

The Naked City screening room is 21+. Food and drinks are available on site. Please do not bring outside food or drink. We reserve the right to refuse admission to anyone under the influence of extreme drugs or alcohol.

General Admission: $10 per session (register here in advance)

Teachers/Professors, Seniors 65+, Veterans, and Students with ID: $5 per session (register at event)

Low Income Housing / No Housing patrons: free entry

Day-of and point-of-sale registration also welcome!
