FANGORIA will host free screenings of Hammer Films’ THE RESIDENT, the new suspense thriller starring Oscar winner Hilary Swank, WATCHMEN’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan and genre legend Christopher Lee. These special events, both set for Tuesday, February 22 at 7 p.m., will be held at New York City’s Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street, off University Place) and Austin, Texas’ legendary Alamo Drafthouse (Alamo South Lamar, 1120 South Lamar Boulevard). See below for details, exclusive pics and the trailer for THE RESIDENT.

Plus tell us your full name and whether you want to be added to the FANGORIA newsletter list so we can inform you about future Fango screenings and events. Names will be checked at the door. Offer is first come, first served, and we will confirm your RSVP. Seating is not guaranteed, however. These advance previews are sponsored by Image Entertainment, which will release THE RESIDENT to theaters and DirecTV later this month.
In THE RESIDENT, Swank plays an emergency-room doctor who moves into an old Brooklyn apartment building, with spectacular views of the bridge, lots of space, cheap rent and a handsome and helpful landlord (Morgan). Said landlord, however, soon becomes obsessed with his pretty tenant after a failed attempt at romance and begins spying on her from hidden peepholes, then stalking her. The suspense and terror soon escalate. In a bonus for genre fans, vintage Hammer star Lee appears as the landlord’s creepy grandfather. Antti Jokinen directed the film and co-wrote it with Robert Orr. THE RESIDENT represents the latest effort from the revitalized Hammer company, who gave us the much-praised LET ME IN last fall. See FANGORIA #302, on sale in March, for a preview of THE RESIDENT, and watch for more articles on this site. See you at the show!
