Monday, February 6
7 pm
Cost: Free
A solitary and strange young boy wreaks revenge on his harassers when he makes a disturbing discovery in the depth of a forest.

Canada | 96 min | R | DCP | Dir. Lew Lehman

Twelve-year old Jamie is one creepy kid. He has a perverse obsession with sex, his only friend is an evil teddy bear, and he's the only one who knows about the hole in the forest where he feeds raw meat to a ravenous pack of mutant troglodytes. But Jamie will teach them all a lesson, the kids who teased him, the mean old lady down the street, even his pretty new babysitter. Soon they - and his entire town - will face the flesh-eating horror of The Pit!

*Screening is presented in collaboration with UW-Cinematheque
