Inside (2007)
Premiere: Friday, July 18 • R • Horror • 82 min

Presented by Nightmares on High Street: From the Crypt

Join Gateway Film Center in celebrating the best horror films of the last 10 years all month long this July!

Voted by Time Magazine as one of the ten scariest movies you have never seen, writing/directing team Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury made their filmmaking debut with this French feature that reaches for new extremes in violence and gore. Sarah (Alysson Paradis) is an expectant mother who has survived the car crash that killed her husband. Months later, with the child about to be born, she’s home alone one night when she’s stalked by a nameless intruder (Beatrice Dalle, famous for going gothically nuts in the erotic drama Betty Blue) who, it becomes clear, wants to steal away the baby. What’s more, she’ll stop at nothing to get her way, as several ill-fated police officers discover when called to the house.

As Sarah tries to defend herself, bodies pile up, and liters of blood are spilled. The shocks keep coming, and people keep getting killed by assailants who beat first and ask questions later. The result is profoundly disturbing and not at all for the squeamish.

Presented by Nightmares on High Street: From the Crypt

Join Gateway Film Center in celebrating the best horror films of the last 10 years all month long this July!

EVIL DEAD director Sam Raimi takes the helm for this "spook-a-blast" shocker about an ambitious L.A. loan officer who incurs the wrath of a malevolent gypsy by refusing to grant her an extension on her home loan. Determined to impress her boss and get a much-needed promotion at work, Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) lays down the law when mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) literally comes begging for mercy at her feet. In retaliation for being publicly shamed, Mrs. Ganush places the dreaded curse of the Lamia on her unfortunate target, transforming Christine's life into a waking nightmare. Her skeptical boyfriend, Clay (Justin Long), casually brushing off her disturbing encounters as mere coincidence, Christine attempts to escape eternal damnation by seeking out the aid of seer Rham Jas (Dileep Rao ). But Christine's time is fast running out, and unless she's able to break the curse, she'll be tormented by a demon for three days before literally being dragged to hell.

Beyond the Edge in 3D
Premiere: Friday, July 18 • NR • Documentary • 90 min
GFC Exclusive
 
BEYOND THE EDGE documents the epic true journey of the heroic and triumphant ascent to the top of Mt Everest by Edmund Hillary, a modest bee-keeper and keen mountaineer from Auckland New Zealand, and the very experienced Sherpa, Tenzing Norgay, of Nepal.

This is a truly experiential film for an audience to not only learn about the legendary expedition, but to be transported into taking part in the action that is ‘re-lived’ on the big screen in 3D as never seen before. Using original color archival footage and photographs from the time, seamlessly interwoven with interviews as well as dramatic re-creations of the assault, this is a high-altitude ‘fly on the wall’ look inside one of the most inhospitable environments on earth and man’s ability to conquer.
