“Turn and face the strange changes!” Yes, even those who aren’t fans of David Bowie (Does such a creature exist??!!??) are sometimes compelled to do what this master musician suggests. They simply have no choice.

Take Kathleen Burke’s exotic Panther Woman from the 1932 classic Island of Lost Souls and Susan Strasberg’s beautiful Karen Tandy from 1978 oddity The Manitou, for example. Both find their bodies going through increasingly weird scenarios – and both have to deal with the odd circumstances, head on.

Lucky Midwesterners will get to experience the adventures of these highly memorable creations at October 19th’s anticipated Music Box of Horrors, a 24 hour film festival. Taking place at the historic Music Box Theatre, located at 3733 N. Southport in Chicago, this 2nd annual event, also, features screenings of Maniac Cop 2, Crawlspace and Possession along with special guests, including famed exploitation directors William Lustig (Maniac) and David Schmoeller (Tourist Trap).
