Lone Star Film Society presents ArthouseFW: The 'Burbs
ArthouseFW - Late Night celebrates the work of Joe Dante, one of Roger Corman’s most memorable collaborators and one who held tightly to Corman’s out-of-this-world sensibilities. Dante’s films bring fantasy and reality together in stories that are both human and monstrous, funny and terrifying, light and dark.
Starring Tom Hanks as everyman Ray Peterson, The 'Burbs tells the story of a neighborhood whose fences are just not tall enough. After a suspiciously creepy family moves in down the block, the neighbors can't help but speculate wildly about the newcomers intent, which escalates into total suburbanite anarchy. Produced by another of Corman's proteges, Ron Howard, and co-starring Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, and a young Corey Feldman,
The 'Burbsis a gothic comedy about the All-American suburban way of life.
