One of the most immersive and rarefied experiences in the history of cinema, Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker (1979) embarks on a metaphysical journey through an enigmatic post-apocalyptic landscape. A hired guide—the “Stalker”—leads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumored to fulfill one’s most deeply held desires. Adapting a science-fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, and making what would be his final Soviet feature, Tarkovsky created a challenging and visually stunning work with painstaking attention to material detail and sense of organic atmosphere. At once a religious allegory, a reflection of contemporary political anxieties, and a meditation on film itself, Stalker envelops the viewer by opening up a multitude of possible meanings. Run time: 163 minutes. Russian, with English subtitles.

What we're about

Do you always have to catch the latest scare flick alone because your friends think you are insane to watch this stuff?

Do you get strange looks when you start to rave about '2001' or 'House of 1000 corpses'?

This is your group :) (... and if your friends don't think you're insane please bring them along ... )

We are a bunch of friendly people with an offbeat taste in films, with emphasis on Horror, SciFi and Fantasy.

I hope to see you at our next event!
