While the pint-size terrors of Orphan and Seed of Chucky aren't considered quality motion pictures, they're a ton of fun. The New Beverly pairs both on Thursday, and gives Seed of Chucky the Criterion treatment by bringing together Jennifer Tilly and everyone responsible for the deadly doll's life: scribe Don Mancini, voice Brad Dourif and puppeteer Tony Gardner. The program is co-presented by Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule, and if the blog's extensive Orphan promo is any indication, these films will see more attention and insight tonight than they ever have or will. If you want more demento for your dollar, the Cinefamily's Friday night special, The Diabolical Dr. Cinefamily's Horrifying Anthology Of Horror Anthologies hosts local Martian Tommy Wiseau and his latest short, The House That Drips Blood on Alex, accompanied by the trashy Night Train to Terror, the terrific Creepshow, and choice cuts from horror shorts and anthologies.
