Three by Brian Yuzna

Friday, February 16 - Saturday, March 2, 2024

“Brian Yuzna deals in extremes: extreme gore, extreme lust, extreme feeling, screaming, crying, the feeling that you could lose everything through the tiniest gesture. His characters strap each other to gurneys for unnecessary surgery, they’re abducted by secret orders and stripped of their autonomy and control of their destiny, they must plunge headfirst into chaos and depravity to survive.” -Scout Tafoya,

“Things are just the way they seem – only more so.” -SOCIETY

Known for his collaborations with Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator, From Beyond), Brian Yuzna wrote and directed some of the most memorable horror films of the 90s. A Brian Yuzna movie is funny, entertaining, and NOT here to play! In honor of the 35th anniversary of Yuzna’s taboo-annihilating freakout SOCIETY (1989), join us at IFC Center for midnight screenings of three of Yuzna’s most jaw-dropping films: SOCIETY, zombie splatter melodrama RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD III (1993), and the rarely-screened, direct-to-cable, and very disgusting THE DENTIST (1996).
