Primal Fear Film Series

Primal Fear on Film

Films that keep us on the edge of our seats.

This series covers a range of landmark classics in the horror and thriller genres, from folk horror (The Wicker Man, celebrating its 50th anniversary) to creature features (King Kong on 35mm) to Hitchcockian suspense (Rear Window). We've also included acclaimed titles that play on contemporary sources of terror, from artificial intelligence (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) to racially-motivated violence (Get Out) to dangers that arise when a relationship goes south (Cat Person).

This seems an especially apt time to explore what we're afraid of most, as the post-pandemic "new normal" seems to keep us at a much higher anxiety threshold than before. And there's nothing like seeing a scary movie on the big screen…in the dark…with strangers.
