Motherhood can be a bitch. There’s a strange life form growing inside you… and who’s to say it’s not going to pop out a demon? Or that your first instinct will be to wipe it off the face of this earth? Never fear, for Videology is hosting an evening of films which ascribe to this less-than-pleasant notion… for the sake of some ghoulish entertainment.
To numb the pain of their own mommy issues, everyone gets a free drink!
Dir. Zack Parker. 2013. 120 min.
Followed by a Q&A with Director Zack Parker and Actor Alexia Rasmussen!
Lonely Esther (Rasmussen) is attacked by a hooded assailant in her final month of pregnancy. Though the attack almost seems to be a blessing in disguise when Esther finds consolation in a support group, especially from the kindly Melanie (Havins). The two women strike up a close friendship and Esther’s life of sadness and solitude is opened up to understanding and even acceptance. However, their bond gets increasingly dangerous as they can no longer tell what’s real and what’s in their heads. Also featuring a searing supporting performance by indie auteur, Joe Swanberg.
Dir. Roman Polanski. 1968. 136 min.
Roman Polanski’s 1968 classic about a young woman (Mia Farrow) who becomes impregnated with the spawn of Satan when her husband (John Cassavetes) sells his soul to the Devil for the sake of his acting career. Based on the novel by Ira Levin, the film was garnered Polanski an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay, and won Ruth Gordon a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her scary turn as Rosemary’s demonic neighbor, Minnie Castevet.
