In the framework of promotions for the Ithaca International Fantastic Film Festival (Nov 16th to 18th 2012; @Cinemapolis and Cornell Cinema), Station923 is hosting a free screening of Pop Skull (Adam Wingard, 2007) at 9.30pm on Sunday the 20th of May, directly following Karen Brummund’s video screening.
“Pop Skull is an emotional immersion in the life of Daniel, a young Alabama pill addict, as his efforts to cope with the trials of his day-to-day life collide with the increasing influence of murderous and displaced spirits that inhabit his home.” (Imdb)
With this, his second feature project, Adam Wingard delivers a personal, low-budget film filled with psychedelic visions, frantic editing and original story telling. Indeed, Pop Skull marks him as one of the most creative directors of his generation. His 2010 film, A Horrible Way to Die, received much acclaim, and in 2011 he directed You’re Next, which is distributed by Lionsgate and will be released this fall. Wingard also directed one segment of the found-footage filmV/H/S (Magnet; 31 August 2012), as well as one segment of the highly anticipated massive horror anthology The ABC’s of Death (Magnet/Drafthouse films; World premiere @Fantastic Fest 2012).
