    L.A. Readers! Mr. Beaks Wants To Send You To The Reel Grit Six Shooter Movie Marathon (And You Really Want To Go)!
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    This Saturday, May 21st, the esteemed fellowship of the gonzo Reel Grit screening series - a weekly event for students and alumni of the American Film Institute and select friends - will celebrate the projection of their 100th movie. Thing is, they're on movie number ninety-four at the moment, so they're going to have to get through six films in one day to get there.

    Enter the Reel Grit Six Shooter: a day-long marathon of awesome genre flicks (presented in conjunction with Badass Digest), all of which will be projected on 35mm at an undisclosed location. Each film has been selected by a successful AFI grad, each representing a different discipline. Here are the six industry professionals who will be on hand to talk about a film that has had a profound influence on them:

    Producing – Stuart Cornfeld (Tropic Thunder, The Fly, The Elephant Man)
    Directing – Robert Mandel (The X-Files, F/X, The Substitute, School Ties)
    Screenwriting – Jacob Forman (All The Boys Love Mandy Lane)
    Cinematography – Amy Vincent A.S.C (Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan)
    Editing – Howard Smith (The Abyss, Point Break, Near Dark)
    Production Design – Todd Cherniawsky (Splice, Avatar, Planet of the Apes)
    The films they've selected are a surprise, but I'm told they've gone after some really fantastic stuff - some of which rarely gets screened. All I know is that everyone at Reel Grit in incredibly excited about watching 35mm of these movies, and since they show some amazingly random stuff there (e.g. Sergio Corbucci's DJANGO, Steven Kastrissios's THE HORSEMAN, Yoshihiro Nakamura's GOLDEN SLUMBER, Steven Hillard Stern's ROLLING VENGEANCE, and Michael Mann's THE JERICHO MILE), this means I'm incredibly excited.

    And some of you will be joining me for this mind-melting day of cinema.

    Because the Reel Grit folks know AICN readers are some of the most well-versed movie geeks around, they've set aside twenty tickets for me to give away as I see fit. Want in? Here's what you need to do: send an email to mrbeaks@aintitcool.com with the subject "Reel Grit 6 Shooter", and give me your ideal (and, most importantly, eclectic) program of six movies. The coolest lineup of films will earn you (and a guest, if you like) a trip to the marathon.

    Finally the lineup is announced! I won't find out if I get a press pass until next week, though.

    Interests:

    Another Earth
    Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame
    Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark
    Drive
    Haunters
    Karate-Robo Zaborgar
    Love Crime
    Sex Crimes Unit
    Tyrannosaur
    The Yellow Sea

    Not a bad line-up at all, and I like that a lot of the screenings are at LA Live!

    Late Fridays | The Cinefamily

    Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
    (brand-new HD restoration!)
    Would you believe us if we told you there was a time, not so long ago, when broadcast television produced great and scary original horror films? It's true; Friday Night Frights would never lie to you! To prove it, we're screening the landmark 1973 movie-of-the-week chiller Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, about a young woman who inherits her recently deceased grandmother's house, only to discover that the old place has a nasty pest problem: disturbing, murderous miniature demons who only show their hideous, twisted visages at night. This truly creepy slice of classic telly stars Kim Darby (from the original True Grit), and marks one of the final performances from workhorse character actor/Preston Sturges regular William Demarest (The Lady Eve, Sullivan's Travels). Though the film was released theatrically in Europe under the name Nightmare, presenting it on the big screen is a wonderful and rare treat that only enhances the film's sense of itchy dread -- plus, we'll be screening Warner Brothers’ brand-new HD restoration. So come gasp, shriek and soak in the vintage terror before the Guillermo del Toro-produced studio remake of Don’t Be Afraid... hits theaters this summer!
    Dir. John Newland, 1973, DigiBeta, 74 min. (Re-mastered archival video [from the long-lost camera negative] courtesy of the Warner Archive Collection)
    See the original...completely rocks. One of the best TV movies ever.
