THE DAILY RUNDOWN is a quick look at just a few of the cool screenings and film events happening around the U.S. every day. It is not intended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive list, but a sampling of the terrific genre cinema available to check out at your local art house, megaplex, film society, and repertory theaters.

DAILY GRINDHOUSE presents a screening of 1989’s THE KILL-OFF at Comfort Station in Chicago as a part of the Released and Abandoned series. This screening will be hosted by our own Paul Freitag-Fey. Info can be found here.
The IFC Center in New York is running a double feature of the very good Irish supernatural horror film A DARK SONG and Ben Wheatley’s unnerving hitman horror feature KILL LIST. The screening starts at 8:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
We have a lot of love around these parts for Erika Benedikty’s super-low budget Canadian sci-fi flick PHOBE: THE XENOPHOBIC EXPERIMENTS. You can catch a screening of it at the Trylon Microcinema in Minneapolis, MN at 9:00 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
