THE NAME OF THE GAME IS KILL (a.k.a. THE FEMALE TRAP) - 8:00pm
Directed by Gunnar Hellström, 1968, 35mm, 84 min.
Starring Jack Lord, Susan Strasberg, Collin Wilcox, Tisha Sterling
A pre-HAWAII 5-O Jack Lord stars as transient Hungarian émigré Symcha Lipa, who is picked up by mysterious beauty Mickey Terry (Susan Strasberg from THE TRIP and PSYCH OUT) outside a semi-deserted town in northern Arizona. Symcha suspects nothing unusual about the lovely Mickey until she takes him back to the Terry family's decaying gas station and introduces him to her troubled sisters Diz (Collin Wilcox) and Nan (Tisha Sterling)... and their estranged mother. He soon finds himself entangled in a murderous web of lust and deceit, culminating in one of the most unforgettable climaxes ever to be filmed. Loosely inspired by screenwriter Gary Crutcher's own experiences, THE NAME OF THE GAME IS KILL (shown on TV as THE FEMALE TRAP) contains "moments of Bava-like brilliance" (Joe Dante, Castle of Frankenstein) and features a hauntingly beautiful score by Stu Phillips as well as masterful cinematography by a young Vilmos Zsigmond.
Shown for the first time on the big screen since its release over 40 years ago, using a rare archival 35mm print on loan from the George Eastman House!
SPECIAL GUESTS will include screenwriter Gary Crutcher, cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, and composer Stu Phillips (Please note: Guests may change based on availability).
PLUS: the first 100 patrons will receive a free THE NAME OF THE GAME IS KILL "prize pack"!!!
