At The Cube

Horror icon Barbara Hershey stars as single mother Carla Moran, who’s suddenly and violently attacked in her bedroom by someone – or something – that she cannot see. The attacks grow more frequent and violent, and Carla must face not just her invisible assailant, but the disbelief of psychiatrists and doctors.

Based on a enigmatic true story, Sidney J. Furie’s cult classic interrogates repressed memories, assault and rape culture.

Screening with Outer Space (Peter Tscherkassky, 1999)

Presented by The Final Girls, a film collective exploring the intersections of horror film and feminism
