Here are the films coming to Tribeca Midnight in June:

  • The Black Phone

    short story is brought to life in this film, which has a terrifying trailer. When Finney Shaw is kidnapped by a child killer, the killer’s past victims try to help by calling him on a phone in the room he is being held in. Ethan Hawke plays the masked murderer (called The Grabber), and Mason Thames plays Finney. This is one of the more highly-anticipated

    horror films of the year

    Tribeca’s TribecXploitation selections include:

    • Basket Case – In this cult classic, Dwayne and Belial are conjoined twins who have been surgically separated. Dwayne looks like your average guy, but Belial is basically a blob of flesh who is kept by his brother in a basket. When the two set out to seek revenge on the doctors who separated them, bloody murder ensues.
    • Ms .45 – In this 1981 rape revenge film, a mute woman named Thana is raped twice in one day. She manages to kill the second attacker, and the trauma results in her becoming consumed with the need to ruthlessly punish men.
    • Tenement – A violent exploitation film, Tenement is set at a South Bronx apartment building overrun by brutal junkies. When the low-lifes are turned in by one of the apartment tenants, they hatch a plot to take over the entire building.

    Tribeca runs from June 8 through June 19 this year. For more information on Tribeca Midnight, check out their website, where you can find more info on the films and purchase tickets.
