Strange Behavior

DIRECTOR: MICHAEL LAUGHLIN

CAST: MICHAEL MURPHY, DAN SHOR, LOUISE FLETCHER, FIONA LEWIS

The high school kids in picture-perfect Galesburg, Illinois have turned into psychopaths overnight, and it’s up to police chief Michael Murphy to figure out what’s going on, starting with the mad science department at the local university. Laughlin and Bill Condon, shooting on the cheap in Australia, created an infectiously fun hat-tip to the horror flicks of their youth, with a deservedly legendary dance party sequence that reveals an ambition and thoughtfulness that transcends the film’s apparent genre.

Strange Behavior is screening as part of Metrograph A to Z, a collection of films we think everybody should see. Click here for more info.
