Announcing a new Meetup for Strictly Belcourt!

What: Kuroneko ("Black Cat"), horror/supernatural (Japan ); Fido before film

When: Thursday, December 16,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Belcourt Theatre
2102 Belcourt Ave
Nashville, TN 37212

Director Kaneto Shindo's 1968 movie Kuroneko is the story of two female ghosts seeking vengeance against brutal Samurai. Synopsis: "It begins with an assault on a farm mother and her daughter-in-law by a band of grimy soldiers, who then burn down their house. What follows is...ghostly vengeance... wherein the women--now decorously draped spirits--lure passing samurai to their otherworldly open-air dwelling, where a nightly ritual of seduction ends in something decidedly more bloody for the men..." (LA Times).
See trailer:

Kuroneko was selected for the Cannes Film Festival.

The LA Times calls it "cinematically haunting and--in its acknowledgment of war's lasting ravages-- emotionally haunted."

The New York Times says Kuroneko "grabs hold of you fast and tight right from start....often hauntingly lovely...[and] pleasurably difficult to predict."

Meet before the film at Fido between 5:30-6:45 if you are interested or meet the group in the center of the Belcourt lobby about 10 minutes before the movie.

**Will double-check showtime when Belcourt updates its site.**
