Friday 10:30pm -12am in Auditorium 5
Director: Tom Hanson
If you've ever wanted proof that the world is insane, you've found it. Produced and directed by Tom Hanson, who had previously owned a chain of Pizza Man restaurants, The Zodiac Killer was made with one goal in mind: to capture the real-life Zodiac Killer. That plan didn't work. Instead, we got the most outrageous and compelling "tabloid horro" vortex in the history of planet Earth. And beyond.
Did you know the Zodiac Killer wore Groucho Marx glasses while stalking his victims? Did you know the Zodiac's pet rabbits commanded him to kill during black mass rituals? You won't get insight like this watching a David Fincher movie. But you WILL get it while watching the Zodiac Killer.
balancing cinéma vérité grimness with outta-this-world absurdity, this movie is an ultra-bizarro time capsure that features authentic recreations of the Zodiac's crimes contrasted with dialogue such as, "Why are evil people allowed to live, but innocent rabbits must die?" During theatrical screenings in San Francisco, Hanson and actors from the movie constructed in-theater "traps" to lure the killer from hiding. These included a raffle with a motorcycle as a prize. Because even the Zodiac needs to get around.
AGFA is beyond excited to provide a brand new 4K transfer of this crown jewel from the Something Weird archive. Next step: capture the Zodiac Killer.
