THERE’S NOTHING OUT THERE, the film that invented the meta-horror genre, inspiring Scream and The Cabin in the Woods, will have its first 35mm screening in over 20 years at New Beverley Cinema. Writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky will be present for a Q&A with horror critic Brian Collins.
THERE’S NOTHING OUT THERE is a low-budget independent film which critic Joe Bob Briggs described as having “invented the self-referential horror flick”. Released in 1992, the film told the classic story of a group of teens who go to a cabin in the woods for spring break, only to be terrorized by an alien creature. But one of the kids has seen every horror film, and knows all the warning signs and rules of the genre.
