What if you couldn’t touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face…or kiss the boy next door? “Everything, Everything” tells the unlikely love story of Maddy, a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly, the boy next door who won’t let that stop them.

Maddy is desperate to experience the much more stimulating outside world, and the promise of her first romance. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together…even if it means losing everything.

Boris Karloff stars as the screen’s most memorable monster in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made.

Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster (Karloff) out of lifeless body parts. It’s director James Whale’s adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel blended with Karloff’s compassionate portrayal of a creature groping for identity that makes Frankenstein a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time.

One of the most memorable of the giant monster films of the ’50s, this sci-fi classic concerns a shapeless, flesh dissolving mass that emerges from a fallen meteor and grows larger with each victim it absorbs. At first scoffed at by the police, teenage hero Steve Andrews “Steve McQueen, in his first lead role) and his girlfriend, Jane Martin, enlist their drag-racing buddies to alert the town to the danger, before being trapped in a diner that is completely enveloped by the Blob in the film’s spectacular climax. Featuring a hit theme song by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, “Beware the Blob” and special effects that are still impressive today, The Blob rocketed McQueen to stardom and was later remade in 1988.
