SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29

Linwood Dunn Theater, 7:30 p.m.

SPIDER BABY (1968, 35mm, black-and-white, 81 min.)
World premiere of the Academy Film Archive’s new restoration from the original negative, with special guest writer-director Jack Hill.

Filmed in 1964 but not released theatrically until 1968, this cult classic marked the solo directorial debut of Hill. The eerie story follows three siblings suffering from a rare genetic disorder that causes them to regress to a primal state of being and act out with savage, incestuous and animalistic behavior.

Linwood Dunn Theater, 9:30 p.m.

CARNIVAL OF SOULS (1962, 35mm, black-and-white, 78 min.)
World premiere of the Academy Film Archive’s new restoration from the original negative.

Director Herk Harvey’s only feature film was made on a tiny budget with a crew largely composed of industrial filmmakers from Lawrence, Kansas. Filled with evocative images, the film tells the story of a young woman who seemingly survives a car crash but is haunted by a ghostly figure that is somehow connected to an abandoned carnival pavilion.
