    From the mind of Wes Craven, The Hills Have Eyes stands alongside the likes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Night of the Living Dead  as a masterpiece! Taking a detour whilst enroute to L.A., the Carter family’s (featuring Dee Wallace of E.T. and The Howling)  camper van breaks down in the middle of the desert and they find themselves at the mercy of monstrous cannibals lurking in the hills. Not to be missed.

    Film professor and writer George Toles will introduce (on Saturday) a new digital version of Bergman's masterwork Persona. Liv Ullmann plays a stage actor who has inexplicably gone mute; an equally mesmerizing Bibi Andersson is the garrulous young nurse caring for her in a remote island cottage. Acted with astonishing nuance and shot in stark contrast and soft light by Sven Nykvist, the influential Persona is a penetrating, dreamlike work of profound psychological depth.
