June 7: Lyle, dir. Stewart Thorndike
June 14: Sleepaway Camp, dir. Robert Hiltzik
June 21: Hellbent, dir. Paul Etheredge
June 28: Cruising, dir. William Friedkin
July 5: Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, dir. Robert Aldrich (with open heckling--our way of saying "Thank you" for refraining during SHRIEK in the past)

SLASH, like 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 LGBT studies and to inspire more diverse filmmakers to get involved as creators in the genre. Scarecrow Video sponsors the series in their screening room. We suggest bringing an extra seat cushion if you get uncomfortable sitting in classroom chairs.

Concessions 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)
