Scream Screen hosted by Theresa Mercado is back at the Sie FilmCenter with a new series, "March Meltness!" every Friday in March featuring the some of the best MELT ever to ooze down the big screen!

Special pre-film musical performance by Church Fire! Restoration courtesy of Vinegar Syndrome and the American Genre Film Archive.
The grossest gross-out gore comedy since DEAD ALIVE, packed with squirmy ‘90s techno and show-stopping shock setpieces that’d make even Rob Bottin blush.
Residents of the suburban cul-de-sac Pebbles Court receive unexpected samples of an experimental vitamin made by a strange health spa named Vimuville. When the town adds the powder to their diets, they experience strange macabre visions -- and worse, their bodies mutate, ooze, and melt! As coroner visits become daily, Detective Phillips suspects Vimuville -- but will he uncover its diabolical motives before the whole of Australia is subjected to BODY MELT?!?!

Fri. March 18, 2022: THE DEVIL'S RAIN (1975) D: Robert Fuest
Special pre-film musical performance by Telekinetik Brainwave Destruktion!
A satanist cult leader is burnt alive by the local church. He vows to come back to hunt down and enslave every descendant of his congregation, by the power of the book of blood contracts, in which they sold their souls to the devil.
Fri. March 25, 2022: STREET TRASH (1987) D: J. Michael Muro Presented on 35mm film! Special pre-film party starting at 7pm featuring DJ Sara Splatter and an after party at The Crypt (1618 E 17th Ave)!
In the sleazy, foreboding world of winos, derelicts and drifters in lower Manhattan, two young runaways – eighteen-year-old Fred (Mike Lackey) and his younger brother, Kevin (Mark Sferrazza) – live in a tire hut in the back of an auto wrecking yard. Life is hard, but the most lethal threat to the boys is the mysterious case of “Tenafly Viper” wine in Ed’s liquor store window. The stuff is forty years old… and it’s gone bad. REAL bad! Anyone who drinks it melts in seconds, and it’s only a dollar a bottle!
