Brooklyn Horror Film Festival Presents: THE HOUSEMAID (with Director Q&A!)
Monday, February 12 @ 8:45 pm
One Monday each month, we team up with Brooklyn Horror Film Festival and IFC Midnight for screenings of recent and upcoming horror films. Our February pick: An advance screening of THE HOUSEMAID.
Director Derek Nguyen will join us for a Q&A after the film!
A forbidden passion awakens vengeful spirits within a haunted mansion in this bloodcurdling, erotic tour-de-force. Vietnam, 1953: Linh (Nhung Kate), a poor, orphaned young woman, finds employment as a housemaid in a crumbling rubber plantation presided over by the emotionally fragile French officer Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud). Soon, a torrid love affair develops between the two – a taboo romance that rouses the ghost of Laurent’s dead wife, who won’t rest until blood flows. Submerged in moody Gothic atmosphere, this stylish supernatural saga confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam’s colonial past while delivering heart-stopping scares.
Dir. Derek Nguyen. 104 min.
