Ghosts of Mars

Friday, April 19 - Saturday, April 20, 2024

Screening on 35mm Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20!

“Part-RASHOMON, part-id Software’s DOOM & part-Carpenter’s own ASSAULT ON PRECINT 13 (itself a riff on Howard Hawks’ RIO BRAVO), 2001’s Ghosts of Mars is a victory lap for John Carpenter’s legendary genre-spanning career & a rollicking adventure into the new millennium. Bolstered by Carpenter’s signature synths & an industrial metal score featuring Anthrax, Buckethead, Steve Vai & Robin Finck as well as an all-star cast with Ice Cube, Natasha Henstridge, Jason Statham, Clea DuVall & the one & only Pam Grier, Ghosts of Mars blasts away western & sci-fi conventions in favor of a non-linear, first-person shooter-esque romp that shows the only way out is through.” —Staff Pick by Kylie P., Usher
