Mario BavaFest: PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES 4K RESTORATION

Canadian Premiere of new 4K restoration supervised by Nicholas Winding Refn and producer Fulvio Lucisano!

Two spacecraft land on a deserted mist-enshrouded planet; one of the crews, possessed by an alien force, turns kill-crazy and returns from the dead to attack their surviving comrades. Never mind that there are no vampires per se—the Italian title translates as “Terror in Space”—Bava’s magnificent sole science-fiction film is a clear influence on the likes of ALIEN, with an eerie tone and unique visual style—shoestring budget be damned. (Quad Cinema)

Mario Bava mini-retrospective includes restorations of Black Sunday, Hatchet For the Honeymoon, Kill, Baby… Kill!, and Planet of the Vampires. $30 pass to see all 4 films!
