Plus, it has one of the best soundtracks of any film to date, hands down.

Let's revisit the cult classic tonight, on the fabulous Sundown at Granada rooftop. It's the third installment of Mixmaster's joint project with the Dallas Film Society and the Sundown, and yeah, it's completely free. There will be drink specials and comfy couches to sink into while your skin crawls faster than that creepy ceiling baby. The film starts at 8 p.m., but get there early for a good seat and a cocktail.
