Of course, things are never as simple as they appear, and now Ned wonders if Matty truly loves him‌or is planning to murder him.

It's all a con, but soon he comes to the attention of a devious high-society psychiatrist (Helen Walker) with an agenda of her own.

STRANGER ON THE THIRD FLOOR Here is the little B picture that launched one of the greatest movements in cinema history: film noir. Peter Lorre plays the eerie title role in this gem about a reporter (John McGuire) whose testimony sentences a small-time loser (Elisha Cook Jr.) to the electric chair. When the reporter himself is fingered in a second murder, he realizes both crimes are the work of a furtive stranger—but will anyone believe him?

Eiichi Yamamoto’s

4K DIGITAL RESTORATION (NR, 1973, 86 min)

The last film in the adult-themed Animerama trilogy, here is a mad, swirling, psychedelic light-show of medieval tarot-card imagery with horned demons and haunted forests; equal parts Tolkien and Gustav Klimt-influenced eroticism. An innocent young woman is raped by the local lord on her wedding night. To take revenge, she makes a pact with the Devil himself who transforms her into a black-robed vision of madness and desire.

But even as the two nations' rapidly evolving technology creates new ways to wage greater and more deadly forms of warfare, a small group seeks to use those same advances to propel mankind forward into the future and into space in their world's first manned spaceflight program. For astronaut candidate Shirotsugh Lhadatt, it's not just a journey beyond the reach of the atmosphere, but a personal odyssey as he grows from an aimless young man into a leader willing to put everything on the line in order to move the human race forward and away from the brink of Armageddon.
