Event Description


The Bioscope is excited to screen the new NEON release from visionary horror director Osgood Perkins, preceded by Kyle Mangione-Smith's brutal short film Annihilator.


Annihilator


Directors: Kyle Mangione-Smith. Horror. Dur: 9 min. 18 V. 


A young man at the end of his rope seeks to experience transcendence through the ultimate act of submission.


ANY OTHER SCREENINGS OF LONGLEGS WILL BE LISTED HERE


Longlegs


Directed by: Osgood Perkins. Crime Horror Thriller. Dur: 1hr 41mins.  16 H L V.


In pursuit of a serial killer, an FBI agent uncovers a series of occult clues that she must solve to end his terrifying killing spree.


Over the course of his career, Perkins has established himself as a master of dark tone poems. From I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House to Blackcoat’s Daughter and more, the writer and director has demonstrated his ability to weave together bleak fairy tales even when he isn’t putting his own spin on Hansel and Gretel. And through Longlegs, the writer and director with a complex relationship to Hollywood and horror has created his own mythic specter for entry into the pantheon of genre villains.
