Sundance Film Festival Announces Midnight Screenings
Including Kevin Smith's Canadian convenience store thriller Yoga Hosers.
The 2016 Sundance Film Festival is only a few months away, and today the iconic festival announced the lineup for this year’s midnight movies series. The series has in years past helped to launch films like The Blair Witch Project, Saw, Super Troopers, and Delicatessen, essentially doing for the dorm-room crowd what the main festival does for the NPR crowd.
This year’s lineup includes Yoga Hosers, the new film from Kevin Smith, which follows two convenience store clerks from Winnipeg who find themselves at the center of an ancient battle. The two clerks—both named Colleen—are played by Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Johnny Depp‘s daughter Lily-Rose Depp. Depp himself appears as Montreal Canadiens legend Guy LaPointe, for some reason.
Rob Zombie‘s 31 depicts a group of friends stranded in a place called Murder World, where they’re forced to survive a twelve-hour game called 31 that pits them against a gang of killer clowns—including Malcolm McDowell, who knows from killer clowns.
Sundance’s entire midnight lineup can be seen here. The festival takes place January 21–31 in Park City, Utah.
