Grind-Fu Cinema Presents

Saturday, October 29th @ 7:00pm
Wiecking 220 Auditorium
Minnesota State University, Mankato


The final Grind-Fu Cinema of 2011 is coming up soon, and we'd like to warn you up front that the movies are pretty freakin' scary.  You see, the final Grind-Fu is always our love letter to Halloween, so we go out of our way to find films that will make your skin crawl and the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end.  Last year we showed Suspiria, and we probably had 10 people walk out because the film was just too intense, and after the second movie of the night (Se7en) I was pretty sure we had broken some people.

This year we're showing two landmark films.  The first one has been called (arguably) the scariest film ever made, and the second film is the only horror genre film that Stanley Kubrick ever made.  Starting at seven p.m., Grind-Fu Cinema presents THE EXORCIST.  Entertainment Weekly thinks that The Exorcist is the scariest film ever made, but when a guy like Billy Graham says "there is a power of evil in the film, in the fabric of the film itself"... well, you gotta go see that movie!  Truthfully, this is one scarifying film.  Bring a change of pants.

The second film is THE SHINING, directed by Stanley Kubrick and based on the novel by Stephen King.  Already we've got the all star credentials going.  Throw in Jack Nicholson as a writer slowly going nuts, and you've got yourself one intense psychological thriller.  Like I always say, if you see a Kubrick film you automatically get 50% more Simpsons references, so don't miss it!

Also... THERE'S CAKE!  We always have cake at Grind-Fu for intermission, and not just your typical sheet cake.  No sir.  We get hardcore cake architecture going on.  Amber, our cake craftsperson, drives all the way from North Dakota just to design and assemble these delicious masterpieces.  The following photos are of previous Grind-Fu cakes:

You can understand why we're so excited to see what Amber has in store for us in 2011, right?  Come for the movies, but stay for the cake.

Also, Grind-Fu is FREE!  Bring your friends, bring some snacks, COME IN COSTUME, and settle in for a night of terrifying cinema!

I'm the new boy in town!  Where can I go?
