"One of the most remarkable achievements in the low-budget thriller field!"—Cinefantastique

Retribution (1987)

On Halloween night, two men, born by chance on the same day, die suddenly at the same time. Miraculously, one is revived, now possessed by the vengeful soul of the other, wreaking havoc on the survivor’s mental stability. Drenched in glimmering night-time neon and a captivating neo-noir, melodramatic aesthetic, Magar’s electrifying horror-mystery will incept your brainwaves just in time for All Hallows’ Eve!

35mm, color, 107 min. Director: Guy Magar. Screenwriter: Magar, Lee Wasserman. Cinematographer: Gary Thieltges. Cast: Dennis Lipscomb, Leslie Wing, Suzanne Snyder.
