Comfort Film Halloween 2019.

All of October we feature films just for Halloween curated by Paul Freitag-Fey with films provided by the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA)!

The Soul Tangler (1987)

If RE-ANIMATOR was shot on Long Island for the price of a used car, THE SOULTANGLER would be the result. For fans of STREET TRASH and SLIME CITY. Insane genius Dr. Anton Lupesky has developed a drug that allows users to inhabit corpses and transform into rabid maniacs. Can reporter Kim Castle stop the carnage and save our species from annihilation?!

This epic of outsider genre filmmaking is a dreamlike wasteland awash with severed heads, evil beasties and hooded slashers. Filmed in basements and garages, director Pat Bishow’s earnest devotion to the craft of storytelling in the spirit of H.P. Lovecraft elevates THE SOULTANGLER beyond kitsch and into heavenly gory territory.

Runtime: 62 mins
Media: Digital Projection

We would like to thank AGFA for providing the films for October.
