Another Hole in the Head (aka “HoleHead”) is a film festival celebrating Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and a broad poster-as-of-now-pmspectrum of related cinema from across the globe taking place at New People Cinema in Japantown (1746 Post St, San Francisco). Defying convention, we bring a daring audience the most intriguing genre fare from both emerging and established filmmakers. Whether you’re looking for outrageous Exploitation, dark & offbeat Comedy, awe-inspiring Sci-Fi, or mind-bending Experimental Art, this is two weeks of phenomenal film you won’t find in your local cineplex! The fest starts off at 7 pm on Thursday, October 27th, with “Homegrown Horrors”–A collection of scary short films produced by filmmakers from all over the Bay Area, followed by our Opening Night Feature, The Master Cleanse at 9 pm. Starring Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang) as a heartbroken man who attends a spiritual retreat, only to discover that the course releases more than everyday toxins and traumatic experiences!
