The spirit of Sitges passes over Phenomena

‘Bone Tomahawk’ and ‘We are Still Here’ are the proposals that can be seen this month at the Sitges Highlights screenings

During the month of March, Phenomena Experience includes two titles from Sitges 2015 in its lineup. These are Bone Tomahawk, a cannibalistic western winner of two awards at the Festival, and We are Still Here, the supernatural horror film that brought shivers to the Auditori at Hotel Meliá.

The Bone Tomahawk screenings will take place on Thursday March 10th, at 22:30; Saturday 12th, at 13:00 and Tuesday 15th, at 17:20. Thursday’s screening will be the preview of the film, which will be hitting movie theaters on Friday 11th. The film picked up two awards at Sitges 2015: best director for newcomer S. Craig Zahler and the José Luis Guarner critics’ award. Kurt Russell plays the sheriff who will guide a group that’s following the trail of a fugitive who belongs to a tribe of cannibals.

22nd March, at 22:30, will be Ted Geoghegan’s We are Still Here’s turn. A film that travels back to the early eighties and connects with the spirit of Lucio Fulci. A married couple moves to a small town in New England following the death of one of their children. A series of bizarre events will convince the wife that the spirit of their son inhabits the house. To deal with the ghosts, they will invite in an eccentric couple.

Sitges Highlights is a film series born from the collaboration between Phenomena and the Festival, with the goal of recovering some of the most interesting titles from Sitges 2015 every month at special screenings.
