Everyone remembers the opening and closing scenes in this film about telekinetic combat between warring corporate and underground factions, but rarely are the rest of the film's plot details, or its aesthetic strategies, discussed at any length. One essay that delves into a particularly neglected example of the latter is Paul Theberge's Cronenberg-focused chapter of&nbsp;<a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=9E8H8rRRj9IC&amp;"><i>Off the Planet: Music, Sound and Science Fiction Cinema</i></a>. Here's an excerpt:</span></b><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">the most significant uses of electronic sounds take place in relation to the theme of telepathic power: as this power is essentially invisible, Cronenberg must turn to sound in order to make it manifest. Indeed, it is through sound that the scanning power is not only made manifest but, also, given th kind of physical intensity that justifies its enormous effects on other individuals and on the external world. Typically, the sound of the scanning tones (derived from raw oscillator sounds and other effects associated with the 'classic; electronic studio of the 1950s and 1960s) increases in intensity until its power is suddenly unleashed and its effects made visible in the cinematic image</blockquote>WHERE/WHEN: Screens at 9:30 tonight only at the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.castrotheatre.com/p-list.html#sep13">Castro Theatre</a>.<br /><br />WHY: With new retrospectives, film series, and film festivals being announced an an almost daily basis, we're now entering what must be the busiest couple months for Frisco Bay cinephilia. From now until Thanksgiving we can expect a bare minimum of one film festival running every weekend. It's about enough to make your head explode.<br /><br />Another strand of cinephilia over the next month and a half is the annual procession of horror films programmed to get us in the mood for Halloween. What better a day than Friday the 13th to mark the unofficial launch of this particularly welcome programming thread. The Castro is a favored venue for gatherings of scary movie lovers, and is doing a great job getting us prepared for the spooky season. After tonight's <b><i>Scanners</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;screening there's a brilliant <a href="http://www.castrotheatre.com/p-list.html#sep15b">double-bill</a> of the art-horror classic </span><i>Carnival of Souls</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;with the creepy (but not normally thought of as horror per se) </span><i>Last Year in Marienbad</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;this Sunday, <i><b>Burnt Offerings</b></i><b>&nbsp;</b>and the "Amelia" segment of the made-for-TV&nbsp;</span><i>Trilogy of Terror</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;as part of a t<a href="http://www.castrotheatre.com/p-list.html#sep18">ribute</a> to the recently-deceased Karen Black on September 18th, a <a href="http://www.castrotheatre.com/p-list.html#sep27">pairing</a> of </span><i>The Shining</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;with </span><i>The Changeling</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;September 27th, and a <a href="http://www.castrotheatre.com/p-list.html#sep29">day</a> of digital 3-D versions of the two most famous 50s-era 3-D horror films <i><b>House of Wax</b> </i>and </span><i>Creature From the Black Lagoon</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">, along with a matinee screening of the 2008 documentary </span><i>Watch Horror Films -- Keep America Strong</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">.&nbsp;</span></b><br /><b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;"><br /></span></b><b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">That's September 29th, but Castro's <a href="http://www.castrotheatre.com/coming-soon.html">October</a> horror programming has also been partially revealed on its website, including a new restoration of </span><i>The Wicker Man </i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">October 4-5, an Isabelle Adjani (at her palest) show of </span><i>Nosteratu the Vampyre</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;and </span><i>Possession</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;October 6, </span><i>Psycho<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: normal;">(with </span><b>Marnie</b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: normal;">) October 13, &nbsp;</span><b>Alien</b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: normal;">&nbsp;(with </span><b>Dark Star</b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: normal;">) on the 23rd, and an early 1980s werewolf duo of Joe Dante's&nbsp;</span><b>The Howling</b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: normal;">&nbsp;and John Landis's&nbsp;</span><b>American Werewolf In London</b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: normal;">.
