VHS Vault

Mondays at 8pm | Cafe Bar | Free

Nitehawk’s VHS Vault organizers pull from the cinema’s extensive VHS archive to bring audiences weird, obscure, and deliciously awful videos in our clever monthly themed series. For December we go antithetical to the holidays by presenting a double-feature of Lucifer’s ladies.


Monday, January 7 | 6pm | Downstairs Cafe | Free

As we all know, three movies are way better than one so this January VHS Vault rings in the new year with an all-action, over-the-top, all 1980s, martial arts extravaganza triple feature featuring all things ninja! As always, these films are selected from Nitehawk’s extensive VHS video collection.

Revenge of the Ninja

Little Mad Guy (1982)
Bionic Ninja (1986)



Devil’s Female or Magdalena, Possessed by the Devil (1974)
This rarely seen exploitation film from notorious German sleaze master Walter Boos features a teenage orphan girl who, after being raped by an unseen entity, becomes possessed by which the likes we’ve never seen. An obvious attempt to capitalize on the popularity of The Exorcist, Devil’s Female shows us the sexier side to satanic possession.

DevilsWidowThe Devil’s Widow or Tam lin (1970)
Roddy McDowall’s only directorial venture brings us Ava Gardner as an older British woman who practices witchcraft to stay as young and sexy as her jet-set friends. But when her young lover (played by Ian McShane!) falls for a 20-something farm girl, things go from bad to dead.
