SPOOKY MOVIES FOR HALLOWEEN! AHHHHHHHH! SCARE YOUR PANTS OFF!
Compliance @ UWM Union Theatre (Fri, Oct 26 - Sun, Oct 28)
(dir. Craig Zobel, USA, 2012)
At a suburban fast food joint, a high-strung manager receives a phone call from a police officer saying that an employee, a pretty young blonde, has stolen a customer's money. The manager then commences an investigation, following step-by-step instructions from the officer on the phone, no matter how invasive they become. Inspired by real-life events, this acclaimed but controversial drama from director Craig Zobel is a chilling story of human nature. If you missed the most hotly-debated film at MFF 2012, here's your chance to catch it!

Tucker and Dale vs Evil @ UWM Union Theatre (Halloween! Weds, Oct. 31, 7p)
(dir. Eli Craig, Canada, 2010)
In this MFF 2010 alum, two good old boys just looking to fix up their “summer house” are surprised by a group of sexy coeds who fear their vacation in the woods has been crashed by hillbilly cannibals. Meanwhile, Tucker and Dale (the hillbillies) observe growing evidence of what they believe to be a suicide cult. “A laugh-yourself-stupid movie about lovable hicks mistaken for Texas Chainsaw Massacre-type psychos by camping college kids. It does for massacre flicks what the 2004 spoof Shaun of the Dead did for zombie movies.”—USA Today
