Scary Movies is back for its seventh annual Halloween frightfest at Film Society of Lincoln Center! This year's edition, which opens on All Hallows' Eve and continues through November 7, has more premieres and in-person appearances than ever before, including modern horror stalwart Eli Roth presenting the New York Premeire of his new film The Green Inferno, an homage to the controversial 1980 Italo-horror bloodbath Cannibal Holocaust.

Scary Movies 7 runs October 31 - November 7.

French films in the program :

BABY BLOOD (1990) 84 min
Director: Alain Robak
Country: France
Though she may work as a circus animal wrangler, there’s one species of wild beast the well-endowed-and-proud-of-it Yanka (Emmanuelle Escourrou) can’t seem to control—men. Yet, surprisingly, it’s not one of her human admirers that ends up impregnating her but a slimy snake-like creature that arrives hidden inside an African leopard, frees itself, and finds refuge in her womb. And so begins what is quite possibly the worst pregnancy ever. That maternal glow nowhere to be found, Yanka becomes pale, sickly, and homicidal, under the telepathic influence of the bloodthirsty “fetus.” (While Gary Oldman provides the voice for the unborn monster in the English-language edition, it’s not nearly as unsettling as the one in original French version, screening here.) This is one batshit-crazy movie—and it’s not to be missed!
Monday, November 04 |6:30pm

CEMETERY MAN (Dellamorte Dellamore) (1994) 103 min
Director: Michele Soavi
Countries: Italy/France
This compulsively watchable and quotable zombie classic from the warped minds of Dylan Dog comic-book creator Tiziano Sclavio and onetime Dario Argento protégé Michele Soavi has it all: gore, humor, heart, brains, sex and nudity, and more gore! A perfectly deadpan Rupert Everett stars as graveyard caretaker Francesco Dellamorte whose job—aided by his grotesque halfwit sidekick Gnaghi—becomes a little more complicated when the corpses start unearthing themselves after only a week’s rest, looking for human flesh to feed on. And to complicate matters further, “She” (Anna Falchi), the voluptuous woman Francesco falls for, herself joins the ranks of the undead...
