Attack of the Screaming Foreheads at UM's Bill Cosford Cinema

Courtest of IFC
Stop pounding Omega-3 pills. It's not the brain that holds our intellectual stamina, it's the 1.5mm piece of skin in front of it known as the forehead. Scientists were alerted to this fact after alien foreheads -- looking a lot like talking, crawling chicken cutlets --  invaded and controlled a small town called Longhead Bay. Luckily, there's a sexy scientist already working on a potent human extract (foreheadazine) so we can all enjoy a higher IQ. Of course, there's always the chance that the only thing it'll increase is the size of your brow. But who wouldn't risk looking like Eric Stoltz in Mask if it meant you were always the smartest guy in the room?

The crazy scene goes down this Friday, when Larry Blamire's Trail of the Screaming Forehead screens as part the midnight screenings at UM's Bill Cosford Cinema. Check the jump for screening details and a trailer from this glorious Ed Wood-style spoof on B-movie clichés.

Trail of the Screaming Forehead, which won Best Horror Film of the Year at

the Action on Film International Film Festival, screens this Friday and October 15th at

Bill Cosford Cinema (1111 Memorial Dr., Coral Gables). Tickets cost $8 general admission, $6 for non-UM

students and seniors, and are free for UM students. Call 305-284-4861 or
