Tonight Weird Wednesday Presents a surprise title film. Lars from Alamo Drafthouse says “We’re going to rip the top of your head off this time with our extra special Weird Wednesday surprise title. It’s one of the three pillars of weirdness, one of the all-time great exploitation titles ever made. 100% not for children or the humorless. No refunds will be extended to anyone who drops dead from a brain hemorrhage or excessive laughing. You won’t believe it. And if you tell me you believe it I won’t believe you.” Couldn’t have said it better myself and since I trust his judgement, I say go for a little mystery and excitement tonight and you probably won’t be disappointed. Alamo Ritz 10pm.

Summer of 1982 continues with John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982). Closely related to the 1952 classic The Thing from another world, featuring a different twist and clearly a movie way ahead of its time. Starring Kurt Russell, who is on expedition for scientific research with his crew the the Antarctic, unleash an alien life force who has the ability to embody human victims in freakishly ways. Humm strangely like Scientology.  Nonetheless, a jump out of  your chair, classic scary 80′s flick. Alamo Ritz 7pm
