Girl Asleep – Regent Square Theater
The world is closing in on Australian teen Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning 15 she can’t bear to leave her childhood, it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she’s flung into a parallel place; a world that’s weirdly erotic, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous – only there can she find herself. Girl Asleep opens on October 7th at Regent Square Theater.
The Greasy Strangler – Hollywood Theater
Helmed by first-time feature director Jim Hosking, the surreal, Los Angeles-set midnight-horror comedy follows Ronnie, a man who runs a Disco Walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attention. It also signals the appearance of The Greasy Strangler, an oily, slimy inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent. The Greasy Strangler screens on October 7th and 8th at the Hollywood Theater. Tickets are available for purchase at Showclix or at the door.
